Our-NZ-way-of-working_0.jpg

MedAces was founded in 2013 to help medical students achieve their dream of becoming doctors. Because the stakes are now higher than ever with medical schools weighing the interview up to 50% of the application mark, we created a strategy and program to help students ace the medical interview with the input from 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 and we continue to strive to have the highest success rates for medical school entry in the Southern Hemisphere.

Our Commitment

92% Success Rate for 2018!

Unfortunately, the medical interview is an imperfect system of screening for great future doctors. An hour of providing personal anecdotes and solving problems is nowhere near enough to determine medical success. It’s crazy when you realise that complete strangers within minutes, will judge whether you have what it takes to be a doctor! Some of our tutors who have worked as interviewers for medical schools have seen many amazing individuals with incredible interpersonal and empathy skills fail the interview due to a poor 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 through body language, and vocal tone
  • mental 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 focus on methodical solutions to improve your marks, taking the guesswork out of interviews.

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

1- Theory
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 will have the same stations, scenarios and format as the medical school you are interviewing for!

In his spare time, he enjoys reading the Economist, going for very long bike rides around the Melbourne peninsula and keeping up to date with health and medical law.

Aadarsh

Aadarsh is a second year medical student at Monash University. He has extensive tutoring experience in breaking down complex terms into easy to understand take away messages. He currently works as an anatomy demonstrator at Monash.

While not tutoring or studying, Aadarsh enjoys spending his time playing cricket, basketball and watching sports. He is hoping to become a neurosurgeon.

Happy Students

I was provided with honest and insightful techniques to help me maximise marks in each station. After not receving a single offer after interviewing at 3 universities last year, I decided to get professional interview help. My tutor picked apart my answer line by line and showed me exactly where I was going wrong. I’m extremely grateful for the help provided and the willingness to accomodate me at a short notice even though they were already running a very hectic schedule!

I attended the training program last year and the techniques that I learned really boosted my confidence and helped me get into medicine! I failed all the interviews for undergraduate medical entry even with really high ATAR/UMAT scores so I was really nervous coming into my medical school interview this second time round. Jonathan really knew his stuff and went above and beyond to make sure I understood how to tackle the questions. I can’t thank you enough!
