Our Approach

It is never too early to join the PremedHQ family! We work with high school students from 9th-12th grade, ensuring they are prepared for both BS/MD programs and highly ranked undergraduate universities. We approach each grade level with a different set of coaching objectives. We also work with traditional undergraduates preparing for medical school.

Premed Coaching (Prior to 11th Grade)

Receiving sound guidance, especially early on, gives our students an unparalleled competitive advantage on their BS/MD admissions journey. In these early stages, every student's needs are unique. We can maximize your academic performance, find you meaningful research and clinical activities, help you apply to summer internships and programs, and improve your writing skills. As you approach 11th grade, we will help you navigate your preparation for standardized tests, develop you as a medical and non-medical activities leader, help you complete your PremedHQ Capstone Project, and start exploring universities and BS/MD programs for you to target.

Admissions Coaching (11th Grade Onward)

All of your hard work comes down to this moment! You must maintain your amazing GPA while also applying to many top universities and BS/MD programs. Furthermore, this is the year you will cement 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. You will meet with your primary coach on a weekly basis AND also meet with PremedHQ’s founder (who has 13 years of BS/MD admissions coaching experience) on a monthly basis.

Our Commitment to the Medical Field

Since 2010, PremedHQ, Inc. has been a trusted partner to aspiring medical doctors. As the foremost experienced and trusted mentors for America's future doctors, we are responsible for giving back to the medical field. PremedHQ contributes to this responsibility in two ways:

1.) We produce free resources through The PremedHQ Guide, which has been utilized by hundreds of thousands of high school and undergraduate premedical students worldwide. These resources include over 170 video lectures for the MCAT, articles on high school success and premedical preparation, and webinars to guide and inspire America's future medical doctors. We are proud to provide a widely-praised MCAT preparation resource, PremedHQ Science Academy, which nearly 3 million students have viewed.

2.) We provide 1-on-1 mentorship at no cost for premedical students who are economically disadvantaged or of low socioeconomic status (SES) and to premedical students who are members of a racial or ethnic group historically underrepresented in medicine (the American Association of Medical Colleges has defined the following groups as historically underrepresented in medicine: African-American/Black, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian/Alaska Native Native, or Hawaiian/Pacific Islander).

PremedHQ's Diversity in Medical Education (DIME) initiative is a pro bono platform connecting premedical college students from underrepresented minorities in medicine, or disadvantaged backgrounds, seeking mentorship with current medical students and medical residents across the country. Forbes Magazine recognized PremedHQ's efforts to better the medical field and honored PremedHQ as a leader in the medical education industry. Our team feels passionate about adding to the diversity of the medical workforce and fulfilling our role in tackling physician shortages in medically underserved regions of the United States. You can learn more about PremedHQ's DIME initiative on our DIME website.
