MedSchoolCoach Strategic Planning Sessions pair you with a Physician Advisor with admissions committee experience to help you shape and transform your application.
At MedSchoolCoach, all of our Physician Advisors, whether they are advising high school, pre-med or medical school students, are actual physicians.
We work with thousands of students and almost every single one loves working with us and feels they received substantial help.
You will work one-on-one with a Physician Advisor to develop a strategy that enhances your application and gives you the competitive edge so that you are set up for success once it’s time to apply.
Once you sign-up, you will complete a detailed intake form that asks you about your education and personal history.
After reviewing your intake form in detail, we will match you with the Physician Advisor who is best suited for you. Your Physician Advisor will then reach out to set up a time to connect.
You will create a game plan with your Physician Advisor via a video advising session. After the session, you will have a detailed map that will enable you to take the next steps on your journey.
Your situation may require short-term and long-term plans. Regardless, we are here to help you move forward in your quest to become a physician.

Using our proprietary algorithm, your Physician Advisor will perform a detailed analysis of your statistics, state residency, location, and career preferences to help you choose the best schools.
Work with a Physician Advisor to improve your chances the next time by addressing gap year options, extracurricular activities, classes to retake, and anything else that held you back the last time you applied.
Submit your transcript, resume, and detailed background information to determine your overall candidacy and the best time to apply.
