How Strategic Planning Works

Sign Up

Once you enroll below, you'll receive an intake form so that we may better understand your education and personal history.

Get Paired

We will review your intake in detail and match you with the best fit advisor. The advisor will then reach out to set up a time to connect.

Advising Session

Get started with a game planning session with your physician advisor – all via video conference. Afterwards, you'll have a detailed plan which will guide you on the next steps of your journey.

Repeat as Needed

Your situation may require both short-term and long-term planning. Come back any time throughout the year to continue where you last left off as you continue your quest to become a physician.

The MedSchoolCoach Difference

Get coached by actual physician advisors – not medical students, editors or guidance counselors. The people reviewing your application are physicians, so those helping you prepare your application should also be.

Experience

With more than 12,000 students and 500,000 coaching hours combined, no one has more experience than we do helping high school students get accepted into BS/MD programs.
