Interview season is in full swing! Coupled with the holidays, it makes for an exciting (aka anxious) time for prospective medical students and their families.
Preparing for medical school interviews is stressful – it’s difficult to know (a) how to prepare and (b) what a good answer sounds like. It’s also difficult for all students to find physicians or medical students who are familiar with the newer models of interviewing such as Modified Personal Interview (MPI), the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) or Panel Interviews.
We here at the Medical School Crash Course have planned a 1 day Medical School Interview Bootcamp in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Sunday January 24, 2016. The one day event will feature medical students from the University of Toronto and physicians who have collectively interviewed over 1500+ medical school candidates. The day will include interview strategies and techniques, as well as an opportunity to work with the medical students in a panel and break-out sessions.
As an added bonus – for those who can’t attend – the strategies and panel sessions will be available via webcast. To participate in the small-group break-out session, attendance will be required.
There are prep companies who charge (crazy prices) for a similar session BUT we recognize you’re students and therefore embody the statement “great minds, with great debts”. We’re proud to offer the Medical School Crash Course: Interview Bootcamp for FREE to those who register in advance – CLICK ME!
Space is extremely limited and is expected to be in high demand for this unique opportunity. ALL students are welcome to attend – irrespective of their School and/or Year or study; however, registration preference will be given on a “first come, first served” basis and to 3rd and 4th year students. Students interested in viewing the webcast will need to register in advance to be given access to the link.
Date: Sunday January 24, 2016
Location: University of Toronto; Room – TBD
Time: 10:00am – 3:00 pm
