Daunted and overwhelmed by the medical school application process?
Confused about what you should include in your portfolio?
Terrified that you won’t be prepared for the interview questions or present yourself well?

The application and interview process is crucial for everyone pursuing a career in medicine

If just thinking about applications and interviews gives you sweaty palms, you’re definitely not alone.  There are a number of things that set the successful medical school applicants apart and it may not be what you think!

Many people will focus on maximising their ATAR or GPA, but will spend no time thinking about how they will showcase their own skills and aptitude to become a doctor or how they’ll deal with interview nerves.

As a senior medical administrator with over 30 years’ experience, I’ve seen it first-hand time and time again. Surprisingly few candidates are really well prepared!

Where do many applicants go wrong? 

• They don’t allow enough time for every aspect of the process
• They’re not prepared to highlight that they have the qualities it takes to be a good doctor
• They don’t understand what the medical schools are actually looking for
• They don’t know what to expect at interview and they’re underprepared
• They don’t have any strategies for coping with interview nerves
