  1. 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. Goal setting prior to your first session. Access to 100 unique MMI scenarios via sessions. MMI Interview Preparation Presentation provided to all clients outlining MMI theory, an organized approach for the 6 different types of MMI questions you will encounter including picture and acting stations, a crash course in medical ethics and links to high yield articles and information on current events, COVID, aboriginal health, homelessness, racism, sexism, technology and medicine, the Canadian Health Care System, mental health, transgender health, physician burnout, vaccine hesitancy and many more HIGH YIELD topics that you should review to be prepared for the MMI. Offering full-length mock MMI simulations with detailed feedback and scoring. Optional MMI scoring on a scale from 1-10 with each session. Rate: $95/hour Availability: Limited availability on evenings and weekends due to the demands of residency, coaching will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Disclaimers: We have signed a confidentiality agreement when we were MMI interviewers, and cannot disclose specific details regarding question content, but can provide insight on the interview process and what distinguishes excellent candidates from average ones. We will not be interviewing for the 2023 MMI as this prohibits you from assisting any potential candidates. Please email MDinterviewprep1@gmail.com if you are interested. Coaching will be offered on a first come first serve basis. Best of luck in the 2023 interviews to all candidates!
  2. I'm planning on choosing BSc Forensics as my premed in Canada. Do you think there's any scope for it there in case I don't get into med school? Will a Masters in Forensics help me land a stable job with a stable income?
  3. Hello, People, I am looking for suggestions to help me decide. You see I am slightly confused, I am currently in the final year of my 3-year B.sc in biological sciences from U of M now I want to apply to med schools in Canada but My current GPA would end up being 3.2/4.5 I am confused with the following options which ones to pursue to get into med schools across Canada and you know increase my GPA. 1- Do an associate degree (which i don't know if would be counted in the GPA) 2- Do a post-baccalaureate diploma (again not sure if it would be counted in the GPA) 3- A second undergraduate degree in Environmental science I was hoping if someone could give me an insight, Thanks in advance for the help!
  4. Hello! I just got accepted into URegina's premedical studies. I'm also applying to USask for physiology and pharmacology but haven't heard back from them. Between these two programs, which one would be the better option? Would URegina's program be more similar to a health science degree whereas USask would be more similar to a bio degree? Thanks!
  5. Hello. I'm a grade 12 student in Ontario and to maximize my chances at getting into med school I want to study in either Alberta or Saskatchewan. From the statistics I've seen, Saskatchewan has a higher acceptance rate but Alberta has two med schools. Which province is better to get IP status?
  6. I love you all in advance for your honest feedback, albeit it be as harsh as Canada’s winters or as sweet as the peach drink from Timmies. Enough with the bad analogies, here’s the summary: 24 years old. Currently in 2nd gap year Ontarian post grad, working to reduce that $30k debt. Fluent, not native, in French. Native in Russian, basic Italian GPA: 4.0 after McGills conversion. 3.95 otherwise. ECs: -honours thesis in a molec/biochem lab (results credited during supervisor’s conference presentation; he also happens to be a past department head, univ prof emeritus and the coordinator for Gairdner at York- does any of that matter??); lead to abstract publication and oral presentation (on my behalf) at a conference. -~100 hours as an exec on mental health club (organized a couple of big projects and conferences) - ~100 hours as a research assistant in clinical research (VOLUNTEER) -~200 hours hospice doing home visits for the same patient in palliative care -part time job at a small business/local salon I’ve had since 2013 and haven’t quit yet because I’ve built a very close relationship w the owner and it’s a minute from my house. I’m also currently an assistant manager there -another recent job I’ve taken up at a medical assistant, so far at 75 hours and counting -over 400 hours shadowing family doctor and surgeries at Sunnybrook -started my own catering company I run part/full time dep. on demand. I carve literal flowers out of any fruit you want, it’s been my artistic channel for over a year. -full time caretaker of my ill grandma whom I live with (not sure if worth mentioning that but that has been a big reason it’s been difficult to find a full-time ‘real job’) -every month, I try to get some ppl from my neighbourhood together to pick up garbage around the mailboxes and to offer to put up “slow down, kids at play” signs on ppls front lawns bc it’s a residential area yet ppl speed 70+. I’ve been doing this for over 3 years and I don’t know if it’s worth mentioning since most of the time I just end up going alone -some hospital and clinic volunteering when I was 18 -participated in sanofi aventis biotech challenge when I was 17 - did research in a cancer lab for an entire school year; poster presentation and a paper at the end -not many awards except for scholarship, deans list and first class w distinction grad -hobbies include: regularly attending the francophone community meetings (cafe conversation style) and organizing some myself; an avid gym goer (swimmer) -let’s talk science community outreach but only 20 hours under my wing - I do it from time to time -written mcat twice if that matters -during my second gap year, I went back to take a full year prereq physics course which ran 4 days a week 11-12 which also limited some of the full-time job searching I really want to attend McGill. Not only am I in love with the city and would love to move there in a heartbeat, but going there for medical school would mean my family isn’t far from me (were first gen. immigrants and it’s been tough getting everyone together finally and ideally I don’t want to leave by moving too, too far). Please provide me with any feedback, that will preferably not crush my fragile heart. Thank you.
