Here at Phi Tuition we understand that applying to medical school is a daunting process to most prospect medical students. It is also a very considerable investment, which involves commitment in terms of finances but also in terms of time and effort from the students and their parents.
At that young age, students may not have the right information to decide whether medicine is the right career or not for them and, as educators, we recognise our responsibility to ensure that students are properly informed about the requirements, conditions and skills involved in studying and practising medicine.
This is why Phi Tuition has designed a mentoring program in order to relieve this anxiety by guiding students through each step of the process and maximise their chances of entry, by understanding how their personal attributes can be translatable to a career in medicine.
During our mentoring programm, students will get familiar with the admission process and get the chance to find out all the details required for studying medicine.
They will understand how to stand out from the rest of the crowd during their interviews also what it takes to prepare an impressive personal statement.
We understand that students have a heightened sense of apprehension and fear; however the course proves to alleviate students’ concerns. They are taken through what to expect in the interviews including how to answer:
1. Generalised/Common questions.
2. University associated questions.
3. Ethical Scenarios applied from earlier.
4. Personal Statement derived questions.
They will also discuss ethical issues around the medical profession which often derail candidates at interview. During the sessions, the students will get many opportunities to practice their communication skills needed for interviews and for a life in medicine and will become confident on how to rationalise to an answer.
