Coach Bio

Hi! My name is Morgan. I completed my undergrad in Psychology Research at Wilfrid Laurier University with minors in Biology and Chemistry.Ā  While at Laurier, I taught a first year chemistry seminar that focussed on developing approaches to complex problems.Ā  I am very passionate about teaching, because I enjoy helping people develop skills and learn new concepts – especially as they pertain to med school interviews! As a medical school applicant, I benefited greatly from working with other people to develop interview skills.Ā  In fact, I first joined MedCoach as a student, where I found another student that I worked with to prep for interviews (we are now both in med school).Ā  I felt that learning interview strategies from others, and receiving feedback on my own, played an instrumental role in my acceptances.Ā  From my experiences interviewing across Canada, I can confidently say that exceptional preparation is imperative.Ā  I am eager to help medical school aspirants develop the skills to excel in their interviews. I am very interested in psychiatry as well as the biological, psychological, and social influences on human behaviour.Ā  I hope one day to teach psychiatry at the university level.Ā  I am also interested in conducting research in these areas.Ā  I love reading, music, writing, and musical theatre.Ā  I co-wrote and featured in the McMaster Med Musical.

Scheduling: ThisĀ year, I held a series of group sessions for specific topics. To purchase the recordings, please click here.

    I was hoping to be able to meet in -person for my coaching sessions and was hesitant to go ahead with Skype when I found out there were no coaches in my area. Morgan was recommended to me and I am so glad! Morgan truly goes above and beyond with his coaching and feedback. He is thorough and honest in his approach, and provides direction for what to work on between sessions which has been super helpful for me. I can already see my interview skills improving and I am not even finished with all of my coaching sessions. Morgan is very flexible and accommodating when finding times to meet, which makes this whole process much easier being a full-time student and working part-time. I would recommend Morgan to anyone who is looking to strengthen their MMI and panel interview skills – I think you will notice and almost immediate change!

      EDIT: After interviewing a second time (using MedCoach to prepare the second time around), I was accepted to the school of my choice, and I owe so much of my interview success to the sessions I had with Morgan! Even if I didn’t always use the framework/approach we had practiced, It was comforting knowing I had it in my back pocket. Going into the interview, I knew I wouldn’t be thrown off by any question because of the approach I had down pat, which felt natural. I felt confident to answer any questions that were thrown my way, which allowed me to be present during the interview and showcase my strengths.

    Morgan was very helpful in helping me develop a strategy for CASPer. He is very understanding and really gives you the opportunity to improve various skills required for more in depth thinking. Because of my session with him, I felt a lot more confident about my CASPer. He definitely knows effective ways to tackle the questions, all in all, a great coach!

    Morgan has been an incredible interview coach throughout the process. When I first started out with Med Coach, I was hoping to meet with a mentor in-person. Morgan was more than willing to accommodate this when I reached out to him. He replied to my messages quickly and genuinely seemed to be taking my preferences into consideration.

    During our sessions, Morgan’s counselling and feedback went above and beyond. He explained different strategies and frameworks thoroughly while ensuring that I had opportunities to ask questions. His feedback was insightful, objective, and always linked back to the frameworks he was helping me develop. I really appreciated how honest and open Morgan was about his own experiences with interviews. It really made the experience feel collaborative.

    My time with Morgan has helped me develop both my interview skills and confidence. I would highly recommend him.

    I’ve been really really happy with my experience working with Morgan so far. He has lots of great insight into the interviewing process and he always tries to connect MMI questions to real life situations. He’s always positive, non-judgmental and patient and he really takes the time to make sure that I understand. He takes really thorough notes during practice questions and has constructive and really applicable feedback. He’s given me a lot of really useful take-away points which have helped me to structure my own practice time. I’m excited to continue to work with him. I would highly recommend him as a coach.

    Morgan is an excellent medical school interview coach! He goes above and beyond to ensure that he provides specific, helpful feedback. He directed his lesson plans towards areas that I wanted to work on and checked in with me to make sure the coaching sessions were helping me to meet my goals. I have learned a lot from him so far and he does a great job of relating interview techniques to patient communication skills that he is learning in medical school. He provides thorough notes on how to approach panel, acting and MMI style questions and has helped me to understand exactly what I need to focus on in my interview preparation. He creates challenging practice questions which are very similar to the styles of questions that medical schools use in their actual interviews. I am feeling much more confident about my upcoming interview after my sessions with him. I have recommended Morgan to other applicants and would highly recommend him as a coach for anyone looking to improve their interview skills.

    With just one session i can tell Morgan is very dedicated to helping whoever he coaches, and with the amount of insight he has on the interview process i have gained a lot of confidence about my upcoming interview! His methods for tackling interview questions have saved me from any doubts and i know that with his help acing an interview is now a much more realistic goal. He took notes while doing practice questions with me and was able to give me really specific feedback that allowed me to focus on exactly where i need to improve to do well, rather then just generalized tips that would not allow me to improve as efficiently. I will definitely be recommending Morgan to anyone looking for MMI coaching!

    Morgan is awesome! He’s the nicest guy and extremely helpful! He really teaches you how to leave a good impression on the interviewers and how to think critically about each situation. He is extremely caring and sends you good tips on skype during the session. Not only do I feel more prepared for my application but I learned important values with how to treat others. Book sessions with him!!

    After an effective CASPer session, I decided to work with Morgan again to prepare for interviews. Morgan is very detailed in his approach to interviews and clearly outlines ways to formulate an optimal answer for any interview question. I really find that he is able to put students in a position where they are able to apply useful interview tactics into their own practice. Am looking forward to continue to work with him to improve my interview skills!

  14. John says:

    Morgan is an incredibly insightful coach. He is structured in his coaching and drills in the essentials that will allow you to formulate your answers coherently and effectively. He pushes your answers and ideas towards key criteria that allow you to optimize your answers so the interviewer can both comprehend and appreciate the points you are trying to make. I would definitely recommend him as a coach.

    I met with Morgan following an unsuccessful application round (one in which I had not sought coaching to prepare my application). Morgan was extremely honest, supportive and nonjudgemental in reviewing my unsuccessful application, providing constructive and insightful feedback and suggestions for how to shape my future application. Morgan helped me to rethink how to put together and formulate personal essays and experiences to highlight aspects of my life and experiences that would read well to an admissions committee – reframing how I will approach my upcoming applications. I fully intend to reach out to Morgan again once the application cycles are open and in the future to (hopefully!) obtain guidance in preparing for interviews. Morgan was also helpful in directing me to certain schools that would view my life experiences and other medical school requirements more favourably.

    I did MMI coaching with Morgan for a dental school interview. He went out of his way to coach me despite my busy schedule and he even customized practice questions to be dentistry-oriented for me. Every session was tailored towards constructively working on my weaknesses and his frameworks provided me with the confidence I needed. He truly cares about students succeeding in their interviews. I would definitely recommend him!

    The group courses that Morgan runs are very helpful. They taught me how to approach the stations in a systematic way. I also like it very much that Morgan shares his own answers for questions such as why medicine. I found them very inspirational and also informative. Overall, Morgan is definitely a great coach.

    Morgan was very helpful, and the passion that he has for teaching/coaching is inspiring. He helped me to clearly identify and work on my weaknesses and tackle the fears I had while preparing for the MMI. He always gave clear, honest feedback and he has excellent insight into the interview process at various schools. I also appreciated his sense of humour during times that I was feeling particularly stressed. My only regret is not booking more sessions with him!! Would recommend him to anyone needing help with interview preparation. Thank you again Morgan!

    Morgan helped me in articulating what I wanted to say in a clear manner and provided pinpoint feedback. He has a calm demeanour and encouraged me to explore my response and hone in on one or two points to help make my response more concise. Morgan structured the session flexibly and covered whatever I brought up in a prompt fashion, allowing me to get lots of feedback from one session. I highly recommend working with him! Thank you again Morgan!
