A bit about me:
Hi! My name is Morgan and I am in my second year of medicine at McMaster University. I completed my undergrad in Psychology Research at Wilfrid Laurier University with minors in Biology and Chemistry. While at Laurier, I taught a first year chemistry seminar that focussed on developing approaches to complex problems. 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. 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). I felt that learning interview strategies from others, and receiving feedback on my own, played an instrumental role in my acceptances. From my experiences interviewing across Canada, I can confidently say that exceptional preparation is imperative. 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. I hope one day to teach psychiatry at the university level. I am also interested in conducting research in these areas. I love reading, music, writing, and musical theatre. I co-wrote and featured in the McMaster Med Musical.
If my availabilities don’t work for you, please send me a message and I’ll see if I can find another time that works for both of us!
