If you stressed out about the upcoming medical entry process, or need some additional help with portfolio applications, I have a few slots available for interview training. I know that navigating the medical school interview system can be quite tricky - with many university specific questions, tasks with different timings and formats including MMI and panels.
So I went through the graduate cycle in 2016 and have previously interviewed for undergraduate and graduate positions at Monash, Newcastle, Sydney and Melbourne University so I have a lot of experience with the different formats from different universities. Having completed a Bachelor of Biomedicine and graduating with a First Class Honours, I decided to commence the Doctor of Medicine course at the University of Melbourne. Through my approach to study and being able to identify weakness areas, I was able to obtain an ATAR of 99.90 and was the dux of both my high school and college.
I’ve written my own set of worksheets that I walk through with my students. I also run through the structure and approach to MMI stations and include a lot of practice questions relevant to the university you are applying to. The questions that we use have been put together with input from medical specialists, past medical school interviewers and the top medical students across Australia.
The introductory session is 2 hours long in which I will run you through a tailored interview program specific for the universities in which you are applying for. If you are applying for multiple medical schools, I'll highlight the areas that are relevant for each university. We will run through interpersonal questions, techniques for ethical, scenario decision making as well as do some practice as well.
I have a unique 3 step approach to helping you ace the interview.
Our medical interview theory takes you through all of the interview questions and all of the background information you should know for your university. We teach you structured frameworks and models to systematically approach all questions.
2 – Application
Each session, you’ll answer real medical school interview questions to practice communication, idea generation and theoretical frameworks. Afterwards, you’ll be given feedback and key takeway problems to work on.
3 – Simulation
After drilling and training with past questions, you’ll be offered the chance to have simulated medical interviews. Our mock interviews have the same stations, topics and questions as your specific medical school.
I also help students with crafting the perfect portfolio applications. Through this program, I'll find out how to make you sound unique, learn how to sell yourself so your application can stand out to the admissions team. I'll work out which details to cut out, which parts of the application need more details and which parts of your life can be written about more relevantly for the medical school admission team. My huge experience with portfolio applications both at an undergrad and postgrad level will help ensure you are able to land an interview at your desired medical school.
Please either contact me here or at email@example.com
In your email, please send your schedule availabilties, the medical school/s, you are applying for and the date of the interview. If you would like a free consult, please also include your phone number and I will call you at a suitable time.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
I have had a lot of experience tutoring groups and privately as teaching is a big passion of mine. I’ve had over 7 years of tutoring experience, tutoring hundreds of students from high school sciences to university level courses. More relevantly, I’ve tutored the medical interivew to 250 + undergraduate and postgraduate medical school applicants to universities such as University of New South Wales, University of Sydney, University of Melbourne, Newcastle and Monash university, University of Western Australia, Australian National University, Deakin, Flinders, Griffith, UNDS, University of Wollongong with vitually all applicants getting into a medical school they applied for. I have had the highest success rate (90%+) in the last few years when univerisites have been weighing the interview component more heavily in the medical school application (some universities weigh the interview component 50% of your application!)
I have tutored students both privately and in large groups of up to 30 students. As a result I am very confident in being able to identify the weak parts of your interview and help you succeed.
