Whether you are applying for medical school, residency, or fellowship, we can help you determine your overall game plan before you apply.

Medical School Applicants:

Clients start working with MedEdits by having a personalized one hour comprehensive Diagnostic Session; we obtain a full applicant history and then provide guidance on admissions topics of your choice and as needed. During this session, we come up with an overall Personalized Game Plan for your future success. Whether you are years away from submitting an application or preparing to submit this summer, the best way to get started with MedEdits is by having a Diagnostic Session. The majority of clients continue working with MedEdits after the initial diagnostic session by choosing a comprehensive package.

Topics discussed during a Diagnostic Session include:

Academic Achievements, Scholarly and Extracurricular Activities, Standardized Testing Results, Personal Statement and Application Entry Brainstorming and Content (if applicable), Choosing Letters of Reference, School and Program Selection, Candidacy and Academic Enhancement, Rejection Analysis, Waitlist Analysis.

MedEdits faculty are uniquely qualified to advise medical applicants not only because of their experience and knowledge, but because they are dedicated medical educators who are committed to helping each applicant discover his or her unique path, story, and distinguishing characteristics that can lead to success. Our advisory team collaborates frequently so each client benefits from this combined expertise.

We also stay up to date with the academic medical literature, recent statistics, and data. Our unique evidenced-based advising model offers the most up to date information for our clients.

Residency Applicants:

MedEdits assists residency applicants by developing a personalized plan to help them match with the program of their choice. We will discuss a time line for completion of tasks, specialty choice, elective rotations, the number of programs to which applicants should apply, selection of faculty recommendation writers, personal statement topics, and how to downplay any candidacy weaknesses and highlight strengths.

Dr. Freedman and her MedEdits colleagues know what specific criteria residency admissions committees use to evaluate applicants. Because of our residency leadership, medical student mentoring, and teaching experience, we have an inside understanding of what applicants should accomplish academically, clinically and extracurricularly to obtain the residency match they want and how to communicate this information effectively through their written documents and interviews.Our experience working privately with applicants also gives a unique understanding of applicants’ misconceptions and common mistakes. There is nobody in the residency admissions consulting arena with MedEdits’ depth of expertise.

Fellowship Applicants:

MedEdits assists fellowship applicants by developing a personalized plan to help you match with the program of your choice. We will discuss a time line for completion of tasks, your specialty choice, elective rotations, the number of programs to which you should apply, selection of faculty recommendation writers, personal statement topics, and how to down-play any weaknesses in your application and highlight your strengths.

Does MedEdits just use subjective analysis when assessing applicants or is there any algorithm (ex.based on released AAMC data) you use to see whether someone is competitive?

What, in your opinion, is the single most non-GPA/non-MCAT related thing a medical school applicant can do to help his/her chances for acceptance?

We base our advice on data and our own experiences in medical admissions. We take a team-based approach to advising and therefore do not rely on only one faculty member's viewpoint.

There are so many factors that dictate an applicant's success and each person's situation is unique. Therefore, it is impossible to offer generic advice that would apply to each applicant's candidacy

We do work with anesthesiology residents seeking competitive fellowships. Our students do very well but we don't break down our data for each fellowship type. I am sorry. :(

If you take the MCAT in June, you can use our services for this application cycle. We suggest starting your work with us BEFORE you take the MCAT. Many of our current students are taking a June MCAT!
