Our approach

It is never too early to join our PremedHQ family. We work with 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. We approach each grade with a different set of coaching objectives.

9th & 10th

In these early years, we get our students excited about medicine. We have our own special curriculum that will deepen your understanding of this noble profession. In addition, we maximize your academic performance, find you meaningful research and clinical activities, help you apply to summer internships and programs, and improve your writing skills, which will pay dividends down the road. We believe that starting early gives you a huge head start in becoming the most competitive candidates for your dream programs.

11th Grade

We understand this year is crucial and often very stressful. We will help you navigate your preparation for standardized tests, develop you as a leader in both medical and non-medical activities, help you complete your PremedHQ capstone project, and start selecting university programs for you to target. Finally, we will take on the arduous process of navigating your college and BS/MD essays early, so that the beast of a process ultimately becomes very manageable. With us by your side, senior year will be less of a doozy.

12th Grade

All of your hard work comes down to this moment. And a new challenge it is, indeed: you have to maintain your amazing GPA while also applying to many college, BS/MD, and scholarship programs. Furthermore, this is the year you will be cementing yourself as a leader in all activities you partake in. Not to worry - early on, we will create your application game-plan, manage deadlines, polish your essays in an iterative process involving multiple PremedHQ coaches, and transform you into an interviewing champion.

Our Six Pillar Approach

  1. Academic performance:

    We coach our students to fine-tune their academic and standardized testing performance so they can study smarter, score higher, and have more time in their schedules.

     

  2. Time management:

    We channel our students’ limited time and energy into the most high-yield pursuits. We help our students achieve the most with their time, and so they can spend more time on their personal health, receiving adequate sleep, getting exercise, and enjoying their journeys as students.

     

  3. Leadership capacity:

    We mentor our students to create a ‘Capstone Project‘ that creates high impact in the community. This project helps our students stand out among the sea of competitive applicants by simultaneously demonstrating the student’s teamwork, dedication, and leadership.

     

  4. Clinical and non-clinical experiences:

    We strategically build our students’ portfolio of activities. We ensure our students obtain the experiences necessary to develop their love for medicine. This also helps create a captivating and winning narrative come application time.

    A few examples of the experiences we help our students obtain may include: doctor shadowing (patient-centric volunteering in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and hospices), medical research, and/or summer enrichment programs.

     

  5. Communication skills (written & oral):

    We guide our students through weekly exercises to bolster the student’s understanding of key elements that contribute to a powerful essay narrative and voice.

    We create an environment in which the student can genuinely reflect on his/her communication and ultimately become more confident with his/her own inner and outer voice.

     

  6. Comprehension of the medical profession:

    We develop our student’s comprehension of the medical field on a consistent, long-term basis.

    Incorporated into the weekly mentoring sessions are discussions of the medical relevance of our student’s activities, assigned reading of medical narratives, and sample medical school interview questions covering the topics within medicine.

    We start this dialogue with our students at an early stage, so they become informed participants in the medical community.

    By starting these dialogues early in the process, our students have time to develop a mature understanding of the medical field and feel comfortable conveying their insights and opinions to thought-leaders in medicine.
