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.
MedSchoolCoach provided me with a phenomenal advisor that helped me perfect my primary and secondary essays. This led me to be accepted into two allopathic medical schools and interview throughout the country. I would highly recommend!
MCAT Tutoring with MedSchoolCoach was Awesome! Coral, Connor, and Ken were amazing tutors. My score went up 19 points from my diagnostic exam (496 to a 515) working with them. I am a sociology major and took the exam a month after finishing my first semester of biology. When I set my target score to 515 I thought I was being overly optimistic and I really wasn't expecting to reach it the first go around. I purchased the platinum package and MedSchoolCoach's master tutor Ken took my target score really seriously and worked with me to build a custom study schedule to get me there. Coral was my tutor for the Chem/Phys and Bio/Biochem sections and Connor for Psych/Soc. They were both awesome! They both had so much experience and knowledge about the exam and how things come up, and they really made sure I had everything down. Thank you guys so much for all your help!
MedSchoolCoach was an absolutely incredible service. I used them first for med school applications and I could not have been happier with the service they provided. Their counselors were responsive, and went so far out of their way to help put together the perfect application.
Extremely patient, helpful, insightful, and cooperative individuals. Truly have helped make my medical school application more competitive and I am more confident in not only my application and myself. Small investment for help from great people!
During Wendy’s senior year of college, she worked as an intern teacher in an extremely underprivileged and challenging neighborhood school in New York City. It was under the guidance of her mentor teacher that she learned to love teaching. Once Wendy graduated cum laude from Wagner College in New York, she completed her MA in English at Fairleigh Dickinson University and MEd at Kean University, setting her on an enriching path that would eventually lead to a successful career in medical education.
Wendy’s life took an exciting turn as she was completing her graduate work in England. She worked closely with members of the Royal Shakespeare Company who lectured daily classes and seminars and regularly hosted evening productions at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford. After meeting her husband, she decided to extend her stay in England. On a routine visit to her doctor, she was offered a position as an administrator in his medical family practice. Soon, Wendy became immersed in patients, medications, nursing and Britain’s National Health system.
After three years, Wendy and her husband returned to the States. Once settled in New Jersey, Wendy was offered a position as an admissions screener for the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Overlook Hospital in New Jersey. Her mentor and direct supervisor was an accomplished and revered physician and teacher who taught Wendy about medicine and the screening of applicants for this highly competitive program. This led to her employment at University of Massachusetts Medical School where she served for over 20 years as an assistant professor of medicine and director of the standardized patient program. Under the mentorship of Dr. Paula Stillman, a pioneer in patient simulation, Wendy learned how to perform, teach, and evaluate students in the complete physical exam as well as master the communication skills scale for the objective teaching and evaluation of medical students, residents, nurses and physicians. Wendy also served on the Board of Directors for ASPE and was a consultant and case writer for the National Board of Medical Examiners team in their development of the then required Step II Clinical Skills Board exam.
Wendy eventually chose to leave her director’s role to become an independent consultant in the same field. She is currently working on projects involving medical students, interns, and physicians at Harvard Medical School, Boston University, and Tufts University schools of medicine and Mass General Hospital. Wendy joined MedSchoolCoach to fulfill her ongoing love of writing, editing, and working with medical faculty and candidates for medical education.
Wendy plans to continue traveling as time permits while also attending concerts and other cultural events in New England and New York. She does a great deal of reading for pleasure and enjoys working with her pilot husband in his business pursuits of performance videography and aircraft restoration.
