Coach Bio

Hello, my name is Harry. I am a dermatology resident doctor at the University of British Columbia. I completed my Bachelor of Science degree at McGill University, and I went to medical school at the University of Alberta. You can follow me on Instagram or Twitter @harryliumd to learn more about my journey.

When applying to medical school, I had friends and peers who supported me tremendously throughout the process. I simply want to pay it forward to help make the process less stressful for you. I developed systematic approaches to different types of interview questions and hope to help you discover your strengths as well as your own style. I also was the interviewer for three admission cycles, so I would be able to provide you with individualized advices. I believe that sets me apart is that I went through over 20 MMI and panel interviews across the country for the Canadian residency matching process. I not only gained new perspectives of how to effectively communicate what you are capable of in an interview, but also appreciated the importance of being authentic.

In the last admission cycle, I helped many students get in medical schools at UBC, University of Alberta, University of Calgary, McGill, and University of Saskatchewan, UBC pharmacy school, and the University of Alberta physiotherapy program. I also helped International Medical Graduates (IMGs) from Cameroon and Sudan match to their desired residency programs in Canada. My goal for you is to make you feel ready and confident and show the best version of yourself during the interview day. I am looking forward to meeting with you!

  2. I had a coaching session with Harry that I found very helpful! I am fairly early on in the process of preparing for MMIs, so he was able to give me lots of advice on how to prepare and what to expect. We also did some practice where Harry helped me understand what I need to improve and provided helpful feedback to guide me in the right direction.

    1. Update from May 2020: I’m thrilled to have been accepted to a couple of medical schools and will be attending UBC this fall! I had two sessions with Harry leading up to my interviews. His coaching really helped me give organized and well thought out answers to MMI prompts, while staying genuine. I also tried a coaching session with one of the bigger companies, as they offered me a promotional session at half price (which was still far more expensive than MedCoach). I found that Harry’s advice was much more helpful and the feedback he provided was well tailored to my specific strengths and weaknesses. Overall, I would strongly recommend Harry for interview prep!

  7. Had a really productive and resourceful session with Harry! I contacted him for MMI advice, and he was able to pack our 1-hour session with a lot of information and advice on the interview process and preparation. I had to change our meeting time last minute, and Harry was very understanding and rescheduled a new time with me immediately. It was a pleasure to meet with him, and I’ll definitely be scheduling another session before my interview.

  20. Harry’s extensive experience with the MMI process lends him very specific insights into what makes a successful interview. He has taught me the mechanics of how to answer each type of prompt, but also the importance of allowing my own individuality to shine through. I have lots of confidence that my sessions with Harry will maximize my outcomes of a successful MMI.

  22. Harry made my dream come true. For someone coming from Africa and trained in Africa I never thought I would be able to go back to my profession. During my first session with Harry I thought I was a lost case. I knew I was not very good but Harry never gave up on me and he helped me with remarkable humanity and professionalism. And after only three sessions he changed my life and today I am happy to say I matched to a program where interviews count for 40%. I am really grateful Harry, I hope you read this because I won’t have made it without your help. Thank you

Harry gave super great constructive feedback on my structure and lots of ways that I could improve on it. My MMI interview got last minute cancelled and switched to a Casper format, and Harry easily adapted all the questions he prepared me to help me with the Casper. I highly recommend him!

    1. Update:

      I had a few sessions with Harry over a couple of weeks (Learned alot in such a short period of time). Each session he provided new feedback and I could really tell he wanted me to succeed. Every little tip he gave was super helpful for me to craft my responses. Harry also has a great attitude and positivity.

      1 month later after writing the Casper that was worth about 50% of my entrance, I got an acceptance letter 🙂 Thank you so much Harry!!

  32. Harry was a phenomenal coach while preparing for my Med interviews. At the start of our session, he took time to discuss strategies for each station type in depth. He allowed ample time for practice and provided helpful feedback I used to improve my responses. He was very accommodating with the time and software we used to connect and was overall pleasant to speak with.
