Workshop 21: increase your exam scores and mock interview for premed and CARMS residency match


On January 15, 2014 we had a workshop on increasing exam scores, learning about med school, hearing personal journeys to med school and a mock interview practice for premed students and residents. With CARMS interview upon season in full bloom we had many IMGs we coach joining us to practice their interview skills. Cut off scores for various exams for med school, dental school and residency matching increase every year. Are you prepared to meet this challenge? Tp address this question  we started the workshop with a special guest Don Fraser who presented a seminar on Double Your Memory in 60 Minutes: The 10 Steps to Motivation, Memory and Brain Power. Don Fraser also shared his journey to medical school and the Great Possibilities of Career Plan B. The seminar included also The 3 Key Factors of High-Performance Behavioral Change and the 8 Cornerstones of High-Performance Careers. We continued with an information session from University of Medicine and Health Sciences St Kitts,  one of the top off shore schools with a special presentation by Vice president Michelle Peres and Genevieve Gagne, Senior Associate Director, Canadian Admissions and Operations. Mrs Gagne has a wealth of experience as well in residency matching application as a former Faculty Relations Officer – Québec Relations Specialist at CaRMS. Dr. Robert Land shared his personal journey to med school with advice for premed and residents. As we prepare to end the CARMS interview season and start the med school and dental school preparation for Canada and are in full swing with US school interviews we had the last part of the workshop dedicated to interview practice. Everyone in the audience were invited to practice their interview skills alongside to those premed and residents we coach.
