Coach's bio

Dr. Eilers attended Northwestern University where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a major in Biological Sciences with a focus on Biochemistry, graduating in only 3 years. He was elected to Phi Beta Kappa in his junior year when he graduated.

After graduating Northwestern University, he matriculated to the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, where he was awarded a full tuition merit scholarship. He read the applications and interviewed over 40 medical school applicants, working extensively with the admissions staff and physicians on the admissions committee. He was heavily involved with revisit weekend planning and understanding the important factors which schools use to select the best candidates for their school.

Before joining MedSchoolCoach, he would enjoy helping friends prepare for applying to medical school with essay editing and interview preparation. He is thrilled to extend his help to more prospective applicants.

He completed his transitional year in Chicago where he interviewed over 50 medical school students. He completed his dermatology residency at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School where in his final year he interviewed and reviewed every applicant during their residency interview. He helped create the match list with the faculty and program director. He helped select the best candidates amongst some of the most competitive applicants in medical school.

Dr. Eilers is a Board Certified Dermatologist currently completing his Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology Fellowship with Dr. David J. Goldberg at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ. He enjoys treating complex skin cancers with Mohs Micrographic Surgery, where skin cancers are reviewed under the microscope for precise margin control, with a 99% clearance rate at 5 years. He also enjoys performing complex repairs requiring flaps and grafts for the remaining defects. He also has a strong exposure to energy device treatments for scar revisions and elective/cosmetic dermatology.

When Dr. Eilers is not reading about Dermatology and helping prospective medical students, he is an avid golfer, with a handicap at one point of 3, pianist, and devoted Chicago Bears and Chicago Blackhawks fan.

Student Reviews

I was actually hesitant when I first used MedSchoolCoach; it was a lot of money and I wasn't sure how much help I really needed. I am so glad that I ended up using their services! My advisor was phenomenal and helped me navigate the shipwreck that is medical school admissions even in the most challenging of times. The advice, edits, and support that I received though med school coach undoubtedly aided in my success to attend my top choice allopathic program in the fall.
