Coach Bio

My name is Kevin and I have just started my first year of medical school at Western University. I also completed my undergraduate degree at Western in Medical Sciences with an Honors Specialization in Physiology. During my undergrad I participated in the science internship program and did a 14-month research project at Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada.

Aside from academics, I volunteer as a barber for the homeless. This experience has opened my eyes to the health disparities that marginalized individuals face and sparked my interest in the social aspects of medicine. Not only that, but I was able to improve self-esteem and self-efficacy through the haircut and conversation. I hope to carry what I have learned here into my future practice as a physician and be someone that is compassionate, motivational, and appreciative of others suffering, while simultaneously providing treatment for illness and disease.

I joined MedCoach because last year I was in the same spot that many of you may be now. Preparing for interviews can be daunting, especially when you hear about stories of upper years not getting in and having to re-apply. I hope that I can use my experience, skills, and expertise to increase your confidence and interviewing abilities.

If you have any questions, interview related or not, please do not hesitate in contacting me. I can meet in person around Western Campus, or through Skype.

  1. Kevin is a helpful and encouraging coach. Prior to our meeting, he had sent a couple of links which I found to be a great resource with interview prep. I also appreciated the insight he gave about the interview process. Overall, I left our session with a better sense of how to frame my answers based on the examples he gave. Would recommend him highly!

  3. Kevin and I did a session in which we did MMI-like scenarios back to back followed by some time for feedback. The session with him was extremely productive in that we did several kinds of questions in a consecutive manner. Kevin was extremely generous and insightful in his evaluation to my MMI practice sessions. He had valuable feedback to give, which helped me understand how I could improve myself during interviews. He was also very supportive of me and took the time to get to know me better. Having a session with him really helped me raise my confidence for my interview. Highly recommend him for practicing interviews!
