Information for Parents

MedSchoolCoach welcomes the involvement and support of parents! The decision to hire an educational firm to help your son or daughter through the process of becoming a physician is a difficult one. We are here to make it easy. The journey to becoming a physician is multi-faceted and complex; we know that students often rely on support and guidance from their families to be their best selves and to navigate this challenging process successfully. Whether your son or daughter is seeking MCAT tutoring, comprehensive advising, or any of our other services, we recognize that you, as parents, play a major supporting role and we look forward to partnering with you.

About Our Founders

MedSchoolCoach was founded by a team of physicians rather than by business people looking to drive profits. This is why the work we do for our students truly comes from the heart. It’s why we are so successful and students love working with us – MedSchoolCoach isn’t a business, it’s a mentorship platform.

Student Success Team

Our Student Success Team is always available to answer emails, texts, or to speak by phone should you have any questions or concerns, or even if you simply want an update on how your child is progressing toward their goals. Our team of outstanding tutors and advisors are also happy to share information and provide updates to parents. You are an integral part of the process and we look forward to engaging with you in support of your child.

About Our Advisors

Our advisors are all physicians themselves, have sat on admissions committees, and have years of experience guiding and supporting students.

About Our Tutors

Our MCAT and USMLE/COMLEX tutors have achieved the highest scores (95th percentile or higher) and have undergone a rigorous and comprehensive training program to ensure they have the subject matter expertise and teaching skills necessary to achieve the best results.

Why We Are Different

We’ve worked with over 12,000 students since 2007 through just one process – getting into and through medical school. We don’t do anything else! When you are trusting your son or daughter to a consulting service, you want to make sure they are in good hands and there are none better than the ones at MedSchoolCoach.

What Parents Say About Us

See what other parents are saying about their experience with MedSchoolCoach:
“Our son, a recent Duke University graduate, is working on gaining admission to medical school. We found the counseling that we received from MedSchoolCoach to have been very personalized, insightful and helpful.”

“I hired MedSchoolCoach to help my daughter with her medical school application. They were excellent at helping her create a great personal statement, application and preparing her for her interviews. I highly recommend them, especially Dr. Frazier! 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 :)”
