A bit about yourself: 

Hi there! I’m a second year medical student at the University of Toronto (1T9) and I have a specific interest in working with marginalized populations and urban health. I’m also completing a concurrent MSc in System Leadership Innovation under Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation under the UofT Med LEAD Program. I’m interested in health advocacy, medical education and exploring the impact of poverty on health. I completed my Bachelor of Medical Science (BMSc) specializing in Pathology and Toxicology at Western University and obtained my Master of Public health (MPH) at Western University.

I love to run (2 half-marathons and counting!), paint, and blog. I’ve had my opinion pieces published in Scrub-In, Ontario Medical Association’s winning medical student publication, Canadian Medical Association Journal’s Student Humanities Blog and HealthyDebate.

I love to coach and share my experiences of what went wrong the first time I applied and how I improved drastically. I understand not everyone have relations in the medical field and can be difficult and overwhelming to navigate through the application process, and I’m here to help YOU succeed-no matter what your background is!

Application experience:

I applied to University of Toronto (UofT), McMaster, Queens, Ottawa, University of British Columbia (UBC), University of Alberta, McGill, as well as American schools.

I interviewed at UofT, McMaster, Queens, UBC, McGill and Dartmouth University in the U.S.

I received offers at UofT, McMaster, and UBC.

I applied twice: first after my fourth year and second after my Masters. I received offers the second time I applied.

  11. Mei enthusiastically helped me prepare for the McGill MMIs. She challenged me a lot in the acting stations and coached me to better structure my answers for the one-on-one interview questions. She took detailed notes during our sessions which she would email to me afterwards. They helped me identify my weak points and use my prep time effectively. I was able to get into med school and feel very glad to have worked with Mei as I prepped for the interview. I recommend her strongly.

  13. I am fortunate to have Mei for her tremendous help during my interview preparation process (a luckily successful one). She is really enthusiastic and insightful. She also kindly shared her experience both as an applicant and a medical student with me, which helped a lot. Btw, Mei has a great blog too. I would definitely recommend her.
