The Computer-based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics (CASPer®) has grown in popularity as an added medical school application component in screening pre-medical candidates in Canada and the United States. Initially, CASPer® was developed at the McMaster Michael De Groote School of medicine and implemented in 2010-2011 as part of the medical school application cycle. CASPer® is an online, 90-minute web-based test, used to assess critical thinking, language skills and creativity.
CASPer® is now used as a primary application component of the Michael DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University, University of Ottawa Medical School, New York Medical College (NYMC) and Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (Rutgers RWJ). In addition, CASPer® is now used in Postgraduate Medical Education (Residency), Nursing Education Programs and other Healthcare professional programs. The MedApplications CASPer® test preparation for medical school is the leading evidence-based CASPer test preparation program which integrates Mock CASPer® tests, CASPer® simulations, CASPer® scoring rubrics and CASPer® coaching sessions.

What Makes CASPer® Difficult
Unlike many aspects of the medical school application, CASPer® represents the unknown. CASPer® assesses a medical candidate’s ability to think critically in a highly time sensitive and pressured environment.
The overall skills assessed include, critical thinking, language skills and creativity. While many students may eventually come up with an answer to the CASPer® question being posed, the 5-minute time constraint is incredibly limiting in your ability to fully articulate all of your answer points.
The MedApplications CASPer® test preparation program address the practical skills required to succeed in CASPer® (Speed, Efficiency, Thought Articulation) in addition to the core content that is required to be confident in your answers (Healthcare, Ethics, Legal, Personal Questions). These themes only scratch the surface of what could potentially be asked of you with CASPer®.

Jess B (2018)
Accepted to UWO Medicine (MD/PhD)
I enrolled with Med Applications one month before my first interview. I had been preparing for interviews by reading books and discussing questions with friends and family, but I was still nervous and didn’t really know what to expect. I felt so much more comfortable after my session with MedApplications. My instructor was very knowledgeable and catered the session to what I needed work on (as I had both panel and MMI interviews, this was particularly beneficial). It was very useful to cover topics with someone who knew what to expect from an interview and could comment on the quality of my answers. All together the experience was extremely helpful and very reassuring; it significantly calmed my nerves during my interviews. There weren’t any questions I was surprised by in my interviews. I would definitely recommend a session for future students.

“MedApplications helped me with both my essay preparation which brought me to the big interview and with interview preparation. MedApplication's services provided me with not only an insight of how to tailor an application to bring out the best of my ability but it also gave me the confidence I needed to survive the MMIs.

"I used MedApplications mock interview service because I wanted to practice and receive feedback from a current medical student. I found the mock interview helpful in identifying weaknesses in my answers and improving on them to make them stand out. I would recommend MedApplications to anyone who wants extra preparation to gain confidence for medical school interviews."

"I went into my first MedApplications session without a clue about what MMI's were or how to prepare for them. After meeting and practising with Eric and Kent, however, I learned all of the tips and skills I needed to ace the interview. They were incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging and their help gave me that extra boost of confidence on interview day. Thanks MedApplications!"

“I was accepted at Ottawa which was my ideal school and my only interview. Josh was absolutely wonderful and definitely part of my success! He was very helpful throughout the entire process 🙂

“Hi MedApplications, just to let you know that Isabelle got an offer from University of London St. George’s College. The competition this year was quite challenging. We would like to thank you and Sarah for your contribution to this achievement. Your services are excellent. Please count us among satisfied clients.”
Matthew L. (Class of 2018)
McMaster University Medicine
"I used the MedApplications seminar and mock interview services before I had my interviews at Queen's and McMaster medical schools, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Their seminars were incredibly helpful in providing information about the interview process and ways to truly emphasize your best qualities in an interview. Their mock interview session was great as well as it gave me an opportunity to practice my interviewing style with a current medical student! If you are looking for a way to prepare for an interview as important as the ones for medical school, I would definitely recommend MedApplications."
