Our Expertise

We are doctors & academics

MedEntry is the only UMAT coaching preparation course run by academics, doctors, health science professionals with experience and expertise in test development, measurement and analysis.

We are an organisation committed to helping students enter health science courses such as medicine. We have used our collective knowledge of entrance procedures (such as the UMAT) and the health profession to create a comprehensive curriculum. This internationally trusted program has been remarkably successful in helping students achieve their goals.

We've been around for as long as the UMAT

We have been training students for since the UMAT's inception: far longer than any other preparation program.

Our ongoing status as the most popular UMAT preparation problem is a reflection of the high esteem in which we are held by our students. Educational organisations such as MedEntry only thrive when students find them helpful and productive.

Expert facilitators 

The UMAT two day courses and the interview preparation courses are run by doctors and academics with decades of teaching experience and UMAT expertise.

Our primary lecturer Dr Edward is an academic with over thirty years of experience teaching in Australian universities. He has published several articles on educational research and has delivered numerous papers/keynote addresses at several International Teaching and Learning Conferences. He has received numerous awards for excellence in teaching. He has a long-standing interest in Psychometric measurement and spent time at educational research institutes such as the ETS (Princeton, USA), NFER (Slough, UK) and EAA (UNSW). Ed also lectured at several universities in various countries such as Brazil, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, USA and UK.

Dr Edward has been training students for tests such as the UMAT for over two decades. Among his successful students include his own children, both of whom were offered places in all medical schools and held Monash Scholarships for Exceptional Achievement (awarded to the best incoming student each year). They are not only the youngest doctors to be accepted into the training programs of the most competitive of medical specialties, but have also won medals for obtaining the top score in the country in the specialist training theory and clinical exams held by the Royal Colleges (eg, see RACP News, Vol 32, No 2, April 2012, p 27). His daughter won an unprecedented three medals in the nationwide Fellowship exams ('The Mole' ACD Issue 102, Spring 2014, p 8, 18; Health Link, Dec 2014 Issue 19, p 14). Ed will aim to pass on to you the advice he gave his children which contributed to their unparalleled success. Ed comes from a family of 28 doctors over four generations.

Dr Edward is a member of International Society for Intelligence Research, International Test Commission and an invited member of numerous professional organisations related to psychometric/educational/aptitude & personality testing.
