How does this work?
You will work one on one with our expert Medical HR coaches during a series of web-conferencing sessions. After each session you will be sent a recording of your session for your personal review.*
These sessions are useful for any IMG wanting to ask questions about the process of working as a doctor in Australia, preparing job applications and for upcoming interviews.
You will need to have access to a PC or laptop and a reasonable speed of broadband in a quiet location (such as an office or study room at your home). You will also need a headset with mic or headphones with mic or a microphone connected to your computer to ensure reasonable quality audio.
Your computer should have a web camera.***
We use Zoom technology to conduct the coaching. You will need a webcam, microphone and headphones a quiet space and reasonably fast and reliable internet. The system is generally very easy to set up. If you would like to test Zoom on your system you can do so here
We will endeavour to advise you of any delays. Contact us firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a particular time-frame you require the coaching in.****
Why is this better than face to face coaching?
Face to face coaching is great if you can arrange it. But from our experience online is better for two main reasons:
- Firstly, it is generally easier to arrange a convenient time for both the trainee and coach and there is no time wasted in commuting.
- Secondly, the video conferencing technology we use allows us to send you a copy of your session almost straight afterwards so you can immediately review the session, see how you went and practice. This is much harder to do face to face and would require significant additional cost.
*Video files are provided so that you may review feedback and improve the outcome of the coaching session. Distribution of files to other parties will constitute a breach of the terms of service of the coaching relationship and may result in the cancellation of any future coaching sessions with no refund or exclusion from future AdvanceMed services. We do not guarantee the quality of video files (the quality you receive will normally reflect the quality of the actual session which can depend on a number of factors including internet speed). Occasionally there is a failure in or disruption in recording so we do not absolutely guarantee to provide you a video recording of each session.
**Our Medical HR experts are not subject matter experts in every field of medicine so may not be able to give you feedback on technical aspects of each and every interview question.
***You are responsible for ensuring that you have the right equipment and internet access and speed to undertake the coaching.
****We endeavour to schedule coaching sessions at a mutually convenient time for you and the coach, we do not guarantee the availability of the coach at any particular times. After sign-up and before commencing coaching if we are not able to schedule sessions for you we will arrange a refund. If there are any requested changes in coaching scheduling after this point, if we are given 48 hours notice we will endeavour to rearrange one of your coaching sessions for you (but cannot guarantee this). Any further requests made for changes will not be accommodated or incur an additional cost of a full-price coaching session.
****We attempt to organize coaching within a timeframe that suits your needs. However, as there are often peak periods of the year where several doctors require coaching it is best to book as far ahead as possible. If you have a particular timeframe you require coaching to be completed in please contact us at email@example.com to discuss before purchasing.
