About Us

94% Success Rate for 2018!

MedAces was founded in 2013 to help medical students achieve their dream of becoming doctors. The stakes are now higher than ever with medical schools weighing the interview up to 50% of the application. We created a strategy and program to help students ace the medical interview with the input of medical specialists, past medical school interviewers and the top medical students across Australia. The interview can be a daunting experience and it can be hard to find a tutor who can give current, relevant and high quality advice that makes you stand out from the crowd.

We have tutored students for every single medical school across Australia and New Zealand over the last 6 years. We continue to strive to have the highest success rates for medical school entry in the Southern Hemisphere.

Our Commitment

Unfortunately, the medical interview is an imperfect system of screening for great future doctors. An hour of providing personal anecdotes and solving artifical problems is an extremely unreliable method to determine future success. It’s crazy that complete strangers within minutes, will judge whether you have what it takes to be a doctor! Some of our tutors who have been interviewers for medical schools have seen many amazing individuals with incredible interpersonal and empathy skills fail the interview due to poor interview technique.

At MedAces, we provide you with

  • the ability to structure responses that are logical, organised and understandable
  • the ability to sell yourself without sounding arrogant
  • the ability to tell a story that stands out and captivates examiners
  • worksheets and homework booklets with real MMI questions
  • medical school student tutors who are the top 1% of their cohort
  • timed practice sessions that help you verbalise your internalised response
  • rapport building techniques
  • cognitive training techniques to remain calm and focussed
  • access to our community of MedAces alumni

 

 

 

 

Unique Approach

MedAces, with the input of past examiners and specialists have designed worksheets specific for the universities you are preparing for. Due to our individualised sessions, we are able to focus on your specific problem areas and deliver methodical solutions to improve your marks, taking the guesswork out of interviews.

We have a 3 step approach to helping you ace the interview.

Theory
Our medical interview theory preparation 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.

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.

Simulation
After drilling and training with past questions, you’ll be offered the chance to have simulated medical interviews. Our mock interviews will have the same stations, scenarios and format as the medical school you are interviewing for.

Happy Students

Really happy with the way the interview training program was run this year. My understanding of the interview process and the approach required to the different types of  interview questions were really solidified. Jonathan is an all round good guy who really cares about your success. Can’t believe I got accepted into Melbourne! 😀

My previous university degree was in arts/commerce so it was really difficult trying to break into medicine from a non traditional program. The expertise that the tutors had over the medical interview process in Australia put me at complete ease. For the few months I had between the GAMSAT and the actual interviews, I had a program designed for me to nail all the types of questions that would be thrown at me for Sydney, ANU and Deakin
