Coach Bio

 

Note: My schedule varies quite dramatically from week to week. It would be highly preferable to message me first so that we can set up a time that best works for us both!

Hello everyone! My name is Peter and I was accepted to medical school at Queen’s University after completing a Bachelor’s of Medical Sciences at Western University (UWO). Throughout undergrad, I was thoroughly involved in a mental health organization I helped found and in mentoring/tutoring disadvantaged youth academically and through music. I feel these experiences helped me learn to tailor my coaching and communication to the specific individual, and I hope to bring these skills to deliver the best personalized coaching to any student I meet through MedCoach!

I know med school applications can be a long, hard process, but I am here to help! I first joined MedCoach as a student myself, and I cannot emphasize enough how helpful it was to have someone to answer my questions, build my confidence in my app/interviews, and steer me on my pathway to success. All the practice I did and the different opinions I received were invaluable and definitely paid off. I was fortunate to receive extensive application preparation and interview experience as I was offered interviews at 5 schools in Ontario and 1 in the US, and with the helpful feedback I received from my coaches, I was accepted into one of my top choices. I hope to be able to help you achieve your dream result too!

 

Where I could help most: US and Canadian medical school applications (essays, CVs, ABS sketches), CASPer prep, MMI interviews, panel interviews, MCAT

 

Thank you and hope to talk with you soon!

    Peter was very helpful and went over all the questions I had on the ABS sketch, essays, and CASPER. He was willing to share experiences with his own application and provide tips for mine. He was very knowledgeable in the key points admission teams look for in an application and how to best present them. I would highly recommend Peter as a coach!

    My session with Peter was very informative and helpful! He told me about his personal interview experiences which helped answer a lot of questions I had regarding the virtual interviews this year. We then worked on specific types of questions that I was struggling with and he provided me with constructive feedback and suggested a structure for me to use. Overall, I would highly recommend him for MMI practice!

    My session with Peter was somewhat helpful. However we did not click and I ended up feeling more stressed and unprepared than I did before the session. Virtual coaching is tricky so I know that communication is tricky via webcam.. He was very professional.

    Great session with Peter! Definitely found it helpful. I really appreciated his perspective about Queen’s and personal experience with the school, as I try to figure out which med program is the right fit for me. It was also very helpful that he outlined some of the core values/issues Queen’s emphasizes – we discussed different ways knowledge of these issues could be tested in MMI questions.

    Peter’s feedback about my approach to answering MMI questions was also extremely helpful. Confidence building, while also giving constructive feedback about ways to improve even more. Overall, I really got a lot out of this session, and felt like Peter had a great balance of showing care and interest, along with professionalism. Thanks, Peter!
