Panel Interview

Get Professional Help With Interviews

The PANEL interview is the most important element of your medical school admissions profile in Canada, the United States and Internationally. The PANEL medical school interview has become the standard format for medical school admissions, and succeeding in the PANEL requires a skillset unlike any other interview format. Having the confidence, preparation and practice in a simulated environment with expert feedback is critical to being competitive in the PANEL interview process. Through one-on-one or group simulated PANEL preparation sessions, we prepare you to successfully handle even the most challenging of PANEL interviews.

The PANEL Mock Interview is a simulated PANEL to teach you how to successful excel in the PANEL format. The PANEL Mock Interview is led by an experienced physician with first-hand experience in both participating in and evaluating PANEL medical interviews.

MedApplications™ Interview Process

Our medical advisors adopt an evidence-based strategy to teach you how to successfully approach common medical school interview questions. Interviewers evaluate your thought process, general approach and poise. Through our training program, you will learn how to successfully navigate even the most complicated of panel interviews, stay on time and confidently impress your evaluator.

Students will have the opportunity to work with medical advisors who specialize in your specific medical school panel interview as we recognize the tremendous variation amongst panel formats across North America and Internationally. The Panel Strategy Session is a perfect start for candidates without prior panel experience or as a comprehensive review and analysis for pre-medical students with prior panel experience.

During your PANEL Mock Interview, you will be exposed to a full-length simulated PANEL interview covering high yield standard PANEL questions. Once your PANEL Mock Interview is complete, you will receive in-depth feedback from your medical coach, in addition to a MedApplications™ PANEL Rubric evaluating your performance against the average. We tailor the PANEL Mock interview to the specific medical school in which you are interviewing. There is tremendous variation amongst PANEL Interviews internationally, and therefore receiving PANEL questions that closely resemble what you will experience is crucial to being successful.

Success Stories

Roxana M

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.

Jess B

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."

K. Y.

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."

Jenny

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!"

Hana W

University of Ottawa Medicine

“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 🙂

Anna

Mother of a High School student for a Pre-Med program

"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.

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."
