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 teach interview techniques to improve your confidence before the big day.
Before your first session, we’ll ask you for a copy of your personal statement and find out which areas YOU want to focus on. During the first session, your guide will assess your interview strengths and weaknesses. Each session afterward will include a mock interview element reflecting the schools that you’re applying to. These can be traditional interview formats or MMI interviews.
If you’ve attended our Medical School Interview Preparation Course or MMI Course, our coaching is the next step to prepare you for interviews. We partner you with an experienced MSAG guide, a current doctor or medical student. All of our guides have over 3 years of experience coaching medical school applicants. Many of our guides have sat on interview panels or Multiple Mini Interviews at medical schools in the UK, such as the University of Birmingham, University of Bristol, Imperial College London, King’s College London and the University of Nottingham.
