CV and Resume Development
Pre-Medical Consulting Phase 2
There is no perfect recipe to getting into medical school, rather an evidence-based approach and strategy created and implement by the medical team at MedApplications™. With growing competition in the application to medical school, the MedApplications™ physician team emphasizes that candidates interested in pursuing a medical career start early. For some of our students, strategic planning of medical school activities begins as early as Grade 9 to ensure that candidates acquire the coveted medical placements necessary for a competitive medical school application.
Medical Advisors & Consultants
We begin by facilitating a comprehensive interview of all activities to date, spanning employment, volunteer work, research and educational activities. We then craft a competitive medical outline detailing the pertinent components of each activity a medical school reviewer would look for. By getting to know you, we draft a competitive CV that highlights your strengths and minimizes any potential areas of weakness.
In addition to creating a competitive CV/Resume we create a comprehensive report of recommended volunteer, research, extra-curricular and employment activities that would enhance your overall medical school candidate profile. Our physicians recommend local opportunities in your home town to improve the look and feel of your accomplishments.

Get On The Inside Track
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.
McGill Medicine (MD)
“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.
O uf T, UBC, McMaster
"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."
U of A
"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."
