MedAces was founded in 2014 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 an evidence based 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 hundreds of students for every single medical school across Australia and New Zealand over the last 10 years. Each year we continue to improve our program with feedback from students after their interviews in order to have the most up to date preparation program. We will always strive to have the highest success rates for medical school entry in the Southern Hemisphere.
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
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.
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 types of questions relevant for your university such as personal, ethical decision making, public health, decision making, role playing, detechnilisation, video/picture/quote analysis and practical problem solving.
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.
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.
