Medical School Interview Coaching Overview:
Your medical school interview is on the horizon: are you ready? Whether you’re feeling shy talking to examiners or just struggling to tackle tough ethics questions, we can help. Our 1-on-1 medical school interview coaching sessions are all delivered by experienced doctors and medical students. Each tailored session will improve your confidence before you go into that interview.
Before your first session, a friendly MSAG guide will contact you to find out which areas you want to develop and to obtain a copy of your personal statement. Normally students have a specific area that they want to target. If not, no worries. During the first session your guide will gather info to find out your strengths and weaknesses. If your weakness lies in interview technique, they will teach how to approach and structure your answers. Each session will include a mock interview element. This will reflect the interview formats for the schools that you’re applying to. These can be traditional interviews or MMI interviews.
If you have attended our medical school interview preparation course or MMI courses, our coaching is a great way to keep preparing leading to your interviews.
