For Parents

Information for Parents

Although the decision to choose outside services and products to help your child through the process of becoming a physician is a difficult one, we make it easier for you. We know that students often rely on support and guidance from their families to be their best selves and to navigate the challenging and complicated process of becoming a physician. As parents, you play a major supporting role and we invite you to partner with us.

About Our Advisors

Our advisors will mentor your child through their journey to becoming a physician. When your child signs up to work with MedSchoolCoach, they get a Physician Advisor who has sat on an admissions committee and has years of experience guiding and supporting students.

Many of our Physician Advisors are former directors of admissions or program directors at residencies across the country. They are physicians who know what medical schools and associated programs are looking for in their applicants. Moreover, they love what they do and go above and beyond for their students.

In addition, your child will be paired with one of our amazing writing advisors who will help them craft essays and applications that stand out. They will guide your child through the drafting, revising, and editing processes. Our Writing Advisors have extensive background in multiple writing processions, higher education, curriculum development, and public speaking. This dual approach means that you will always have an expert helping you through each step of the process.

About Our Founding Roots

MedSchoolCoach was built by a team of physicians looking to support and cultivate future physicians. Rather than being driven by profit, they thrived on mentorship and the belief that current physicians should help train the next generation. MedSchoolCoach performs as a mentorship platform, and the work we do for our students truly comes from the heart.

Today, Dr. Sahil Mehta, our founder, remains at the helm of MedSchoolCoach. He is an interventional radiologist and minimally invasive specialist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center who is known for his expertise in image-guided interventions. Dr. Mehta also teaches medical students and residents at Harvard Medical School and is a mentor for thousands of students. His personal pursuit of helping students and his patients is what drives our collective mission as an organization.

Student Success Team

At MedSchoolCoach, we have an entire team dedicated to ensuring our students have a great experience and achieve their goals. Our Student Success Team is made up of education professionals, including Tracy Lampl, M.Ed. and Carma Van Allen. They are always available to provide an update on how your child is progressing toward their goals as well as discuss any questions or concerns.

About Our Tutors

Our MCAT and USMLE/COMLEX tutors have achieved incredible scores on their exams and have undergone a rigorous and comprehensive training program. We believe in tutors who will mentor, guide, and teach your child how to do well on their upcoming exam. Led by Joel Ramirez MD and Ken Tao, our training and recruitment process ensures tutors not only have subject matter expertise, but also possess the amazing teaching skills necessary to achieve the best results. We are widely renowned for our training and rigorous standards. We only recruit the best tutors and will never compromise on the quality for the sake of growth.

A Sole Focus on Medicine

Since 2007, we have worked with thousands of students, guiding them through the process of getting into, and through, medical school. To maintain the quality of our services and products, we are intentional in maintaining our focus on the medical school journey. As our expertise grows, we will continue to stand out in breadth and quality. We realize you are entrusting MedSchoolCoach to lead your child to success, so we strive to provide the best and most comprehensive services and products.

I also liked that they were very honest with us from the beginning as to the strength of her application.”

“Thank you for your help and my daughter got acceptance for UMKC 6 yr medical program. Your inputs are very valuable right from the essay and of course mock interviews. Thank you again and it was wonderful working with you guys. I would definitely recommend and consider your services again for my son :)”
