We are currently two fourth-year resident physicians with extensive experience in MMI interviews, MMI question development and MMI coaching. We remember how stressful applying to medical school and CARMS interviews can be, so we created a coaching service that can help you excel in your interview and maximize your chances of being accepted to medical school! During our coaching sessions, you will be provided with unique questions based on current events and actual experiences we have encountered as doctors, rather than just using the pre-existing question other services use. We allow for sessions to be recorded by you to be reviewed later, and provide typed and verbal feedback, as well as the option of a ranking using a standardized MMI Ranking Form. Furthermore, we provide insight on what you can add or change about your answer to achieve the top percentile of scores (10/10). As resident physicians, we can offer insight on how a physician would approach a difficult patient situation or the current issues affecting our healthcare system. Over the past few years as resident mentors for undergraduate medical students, we have assisted numerous people in achieving their goal of medical school acceptance and matching to their desired residency program! Here are a few testimonials from previous students: "My experience with MMI coaching was overwhelmingly positive. Most of you reading this likely want me to be candid, so yes I received an acceptance offer the first time I interviewed and I credit this in large part to my MMI coaching. Our sessions were professional, on time, flexible, and focused. I also found the feedback to be incredibly helpful and experienced continuous improvement with the practice questions and reading materials. The cost was very reasonable and honestly going into my MMI feeling confident that I could competently answer any question that I was presented with is more than I could have hoped for. I am absolutely going to reach out in preparation for my CARMS when the time comes." -A accepted to U of C “Working with my interview coach was a wonderfully positive MMI prep experience. She enabled me to build self-confidence for acting stations through mock scenarios while helping me become more articulate in responding to personal questions. She also provided me with extensive reading materials that helped grow my awareness and knowledge of current events while developing a more critical thought process around complex social issues. I only applied to one school this year that uses the MMI, but with her help, I'm happy to share I received an offer of admission and will be attending medical school in the fall! She was flexible, approachable, and super knowledgeable about medicine and the MMI process, so if you have an upcoming MMI, I would strongly recommend getting in touch with her.” -R, Accepted to McGill, Ottawa "Thank you so much for helping me prepare for interviews. Your feedback and guidance allowed me to perform well and truly showcase myself as a worthy candidate. I interviewed at University of Alberta, University of Calgary, and University of Toronto. I have received offers of admissions from all 3 schools! I will likely be staying at the U of A! Thank you so much for all your support throughout this challenging process, and I cannot wait to start medical school in August!" -R accepted to U of A, U of C and U of T “I had a FANTASTIC experience with my coach as a non-traditional applicant who finally had their first pair of interviews. The interviews that I was preparing for were very different in their time and content structure, but I felt confident for both sets of interviews after only a few sessions with her. I appreciated her constant focus and positive attitude during our 1+ hour virtual meetings, even amidst her busy clinical schedule. I felt very honoured to have her time and attention as an experienced clinician who was able to provide very specific and constructive feedback during all of our sessions. I think that her preparation significantly out-performed a much more expensive and popular interview prep company that I also trained with in my interview preparations -- my sessions with her were much more informative and tailored to my needs and the medical schools where I was going to be interviewed. I felt very lucky to have come across this interview prep on the PreMed101 forum and I have all of my fingers crossed that my coach's help will help me finally achieve admission into medical school! Regardless of the result, I can once again say that my experience with her was fantastic! Thanks very much! :)” -K "I've been accepted to Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador's medicine class starting in August. OMG!!!! The interview went amazing, and it was all because of your teachings. I can't tell you how much I appreciate everything that you've done for me over the summer/fall in preparation for the interviews. Without you, I can say with 100% certainty that I wouldn't have been able to make my dream of medical school a reality. I was also waitlisted at Dalhousie, with an excellent interview score. My interview this year was my strength, unlike other years where it was my weakness. I am so excited to start this new chapter of my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything!" -A accepted at Memorial "The coaching I received taught me not to just be intelligent, but to be distinctive and to bring intention into all of my actions and interactions. Your coaching helped me to identify my unique combination of strengths and how to bring them to the forefront. Interview coaching is an investment that will hold good for your entire career and lifetime." - N accepted to Psychiatry at uOttawa, IMG stream Description: Offering customized, private, one-on-one interview coaching via Zoom or your preferred online platform.
