Before Medicine, I did my Honours Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science at the University of Ottawa.
During my fourth year of undergrad, I interviewed at Western, Mac and Queens. I also interviewed at Georgetown (MD), West Virginia (MD) Michigan State (DO) in the US.
Throughout my undergraduate experience, I had a ton of help and support from mentors including medical students, professors and practicing physicians. I’m excited to pass on all of that information to you!
Interviews can be a tricky process, but they are a skill just like any other. You wouldn’t expect to be perfect when you suture for the first time and interviews are the same way! When practicing sutures, you need to learn to do them right; otherwise, bad habits develop so my philosophy is that perfect practice makes perfect and I can help you practice perfectly.
One of the most important things I learned during undergrad was the importance of mentorship. With a little bit of help and guidance from a kind and knowledgeable coach, anything is possible. During my time at the University of Ottawa, I was the training director of the emergency response team, A peer counsellor at the counselling service for the University and the President of MEDLIFE. None of this would have been possible without a great coach.
I also have experience being a coach for the MCAT. After scoring a 522 which is in the 99 percentile, I have helped other students achieve the MCAT score of their dreams.
With my experience applying to Canadian and American I’m happy to help with Essays, CVs, OMSAS Autobiographical Sketch, MCAT, CASPer and interviews. But more than that I’m also happy to guide you every step of the way with the right extracurriculars, and making the decisions that will make your application stand out and make you the best candidate for medical school. I look forward to working with you.
