MCAT Webinar Session
The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is required by many Canadian medical schools. The MCAT webinar session will dive into the fundamentals of this often intimidating element of the application process. This webinar includes a detailed overview of the format and topics of the exam, as well as pro tips from students who have successfully written the MCAT. The webinar will also feature practice questions to put your skills to the test and give you some insight on how to solve real problems.
MMI and CASPer Test Webinar Session
The Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) and Computer-Based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics (CASPer) are both popular assessments used by Canadian medical schools in their application process. These assessments are often seen as “impossible to prepare for” because you cannot predict the scenarios you will have to respond to. While that is partly true, there are certainly skills that you can develop beforehand in order to do well. The MMI and CASPer Test webinar session will cover the format of these assessments, what to expect, and how to best prepare yourself so you are ready to tackle anything thrown your way.
Extracurriculars and Pre-Medical Opportunities Webinar Session
While application elements such as your GPA and MCAT score are easy to measure, the assessment of your non-academic activities can seem like a mystery. The Extracurriculars and Pre-Medical Opportunities webinar session will give you insight on the non-academic qualities medical schools are looking for, and how to get involved in activities that nail those criteria in the head. You will also learn how to get involved in undergraduate research and other opportunities that can make your medical school application stand out.
Tips for Academic Success Webinar Session
Your GPA plays a crucial role in your medical school application. While you can always start new extracurricular activities, there comes a point in your academic career where it is incredibly difficult to further improve your GPA. The Tips for Academic Success webinar session, hosted by current Canadian medical students, will show you how to excel in your academics at any point in your undergraduate career. This session will be filled with tried-and-true study tips to help you succeed in your courses and find balance between academics and extracurriculars. The session will also include tips on course planning so that you don’t get delayed by preventable setbacks.
