近十年来,申请医学院的学子越来越多,但医学院却仍面临招不到合适人选的挑战。虽然加拿大各大医学院的录取标准不尽相同,但这几个方面的确是抛之四海而皆准的关键点:申请人的学习成绩、课外活动(如志愿者工作和其他工作经验),推荐信以及面试成绩。鉴于大部分申请医学院的学生都是品学兼优的优等生,面试环节就显得尤为重要,往往成为各医学院招生的试金石。在面试时,学校通常会考量申请者的性格特质、应变和适应能力,团队参与及领导力,观点采择、同情心,以及职业道德。充分的面试准备和良好的面试技巧可以帮助申请者更好的展现出其已拥有的这些质素。

10月29日下午来北约克的一所公立高中(地址:100 Princess Avenue, North York),参加第九届CPAC教育日活动,听资深医学教授及医学院面试官王培忠老师带来的这场讲座:医学院的申请及面试技巧,一定会让你受益匪浅、事半功倍。

How to make your medical school application stand out? Come to this seminar at the 9th CPAC Education Day on Oct. 29, 2016

Applying to Medical School

In the past decades, there has been continued pressure on medical schools to select the best candidates from an ever-growing applicant pool.  While specific admission criteria may vary across Canadian schools, the following aspects are of particular importance:  academic performance/achievements, extracurricular activities (such as volunteer work and other work experience), letters of support, and the interview.   As most candidates are high academic achievers, performance during the interview often play a critical role in separating outstanding students from others.  During an interview, an array of key personality traits is often assessed, such as resilience and adaptability, team involvement and leadership, perspective taking and empathy, and work ethics.  Good interview skills and preparation can help you maximize these desirable attributes you may have already had.

The goal of this seminar is threefold: explain the admission process for Canadian medical universities, putting together an excellent application, and preparing for the interview process.

Dr. Peter Wang received his medical degree from Tianjin Medical University and came to Canada as a visiting scholar in 1989. He earned his PhD at the University of Toronto.  Over the past 27 years, Dr. Wang has been studying/working in four medical universities across Canada, his current primary academic appointment being a tenured professor of Epidemiology in the Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland. Dr. Wang has very broad research interests, which include cancer epidemiology and Asian immigrant health.  He has supervised more than 20 PhD/MSc students and teaches several courses to medical students at MUN. Besides his research and teaching responsibilities, Dr. Wang has been sitting on MUN’s medical school admission committee for 6 years and has interviewed more than 100 medical school applicants.  In addition to his specific expertise in helping people strengthen their medical school application packages and prepare interviews, Dr. Wang is also familiar with the Canadian medical school admission and training system in general.
