Mature Student Entry Into Medicine:

Medical Applicant Competitiveness Review

Our medical doctors will comprehensively review your education credentials, employment experience, research endeavours, extra-curricular activities and community contributions. Once we establish an understanding of your current pre-medical candidate profile, we then adopt an evidence-based strategy to carefully craft an action plan towards medical school acceptance. Factoring in all essential variables, we outline a comprehensive plan on how to make you succeed in pursuing your passion for medicine.

Many non-traditional medical school applicants as themselves, “can I apply to medical school as a mature applicant?”, “is it possible to even pursue medicine at my age?”, “what requirements are there to apply to medical school?”, “is it too late?”. At MedApplications™ our medical doctors specialize in assisting non-traditional medical school applicants with career changes towards medicine. We work closely with you to analyze your current career profile and outline the steps necessary to pursue a career in medicine.

Medical CV Development

The key to a successful medical school application is having a strong paper version of yourself. Many students ask, “what are the best courses to take for medical school?” What volunteer and extra-curricular placements should I do? These questions are strategically addressed by your medical consultant coaches. We ensure you have the best possible volunteer placements, the most competitive leadership positions, and most coveted research placements.

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.

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.

Medical Research and Clinical Placements

Healthcare related experience is critical when applying to medical school. For most university and college students, research and clinical placements are hard to find. Our extensive network of medical doctors will ensure you build a strong clinical and research profile for your medical school application.

Selecting the highest yield medical school activities can be daunting. Many applicants pursue activities that they think medical schools are looking for, but often fail to create the well-rounded profile required by leading medical schools in North America. The Medical Research and Volunteer program at MedApplications™ aims to take the guess work out of what you should do as an aspiring medical student.

We help you obtain medical research, clinical observerships, summer research studentships and diverse volunteer and extra-curricular pursuits locally and abroad. By locally sourcing high-quality activities you will slowly build a competitive medical school application seamlessly.

Helping you Secure Medical Research Placements

Medical research for mature medical school applicants can be challenging. However, at MedApplications, our physicians teach and support college and university students to excel in clinical and basic science research. We help source scholarships, summer research placements and research jobs during the academic year. We help source research supervisors, medical research placements and available medical research scholarships to begin building a competitive pre-medical profile.

Finding you the best Medical Volunteer positions

Volunteering in college and university is an essential aspect of your pre-medical education and a key element of your medical school application and medical school interview. Pursuing healthcare related activities and a well-balanced mix of other extra-Curriculars is crucial to be a competitive applicant. Our medical coaches help you brainstorm volunteering positions in your area, assist with volunteer applications and interviews to ensure you remain competitive. We aim to balance your schedule so you enjoy your activities and keep a balanced life style. You work with medical doctors in your area to source local experiences that will help your pre-medical profile.

Preparing for the MCAT

Preparing for the MCAT is an important step of any pre-medical college degree. The MCAT is used by nearly all medical schools in North America as a screening tool for pre-medical applicants. Unsure when to write the MCAT? Unsure where to take the MCAT? Our medical doctors can help create the perfect MCAT strategy. We can also help you save some money through our exclusive partnerships with leading MCAT prep firms nationwide.
