COACHING PROGRAMS AND BOOKS
ONE-HOUR PERSONAL COACHING PROGRAM SESSION
(Skype or Telephone)
Not sure if you’re a competitive applicant? Need tips on strengthening your application? Need a roadmap for success? I will personally spend one hour with you, via Skype or telephone, to answer all your questions and help you become a competitive applicant.
I will review your transcripts, healthcare experience, volunteer work, GPA, GRE scores, and your essay to make recommendations, advise you where you stand with respect to the average applicant, and personally teach you how to become the Perfect Applicant.
I will also provide you with a critique of your essay and teach you how to get the best letters of recommendation submitted before the CASPA deadline.
TWO-HOUR MOCK INTERVIEW SESSION
Given the choice, would you prefer to be a “vanilla” applicant, or the “Perfect Applicant” at your next PA school interview? If you prefer the latter, you’ve come to the right place.
Here’s a secret: the admissions committee already knows the qualities they’re looking for in applicants they accept to their program, way before the applicant even walks through the door. Your job is to demonstrate to the admissions committee that you have those qualities, and you are their Perfect Applicant.
In this two-hour session, I’m going to teach you a method that will help you formulate answers to every question you’re asked, infusing qualities into each answer. Forget about the “Old-fashioned” interview techniques. In this session, you’ll learn a powerful technique that will help you tailor your answers to the exact qualities that PA programs looks for in their Perfect Applicant. I’ll also teach you where to find those qualities before your interview, and you won’t find them on the program’s website.
You will also learn why the phrase, “It’s not about you, it’s about them” is so important to a successful interview. Once you understand this concept, you will soar above the competition.
Finally, I am going to cover almost every possible interview question you will be asked, to include:
- Traditional Questions
Learn questions and answers to the most commonly asked traditional questions at PA school interviews.
- Situational Questions
Learn how to assess a situation and provide solutions as to how you would handle it. Most interviews include situational questions to evaluate your critical thinking skills, and judgment.
- Ethical Questions
Learn how to choose the correct answer to these tough ethical dilemmas. I will teach you how to use critical thinking skills, versus answers based on emotion, to respond to the dilemma being presented.
- Illegal Questions (Unethical Questions)
These questions make applicants feel extremely uncomfortable. Instead of saying “Hey, that’s an illegal question!” I will teach you how to answer the question without answering the question, and alleviate the risk offending the interviewer.
- MMI Questions
The Multiple Mini Interview is an entirely different type of interview. It involves multiple, timed, stations and prompts that you will need to address. The prompts could include ethical questions, role-playing scenarios, and current issues facing the PA profession. You need lots of practice to score well on these interviews.
In conclusion: You cannot “wing it” when it comes to the most important interview of your medical career. With my two-hour Mock Interview service, you won’t have to fear the competition, you’ll be the competition!
