CASPer Strategy Session

Computer-based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics

CASPer® was initially designed at McMaster Michael de Groote School of Medicine as an alternative online method of assessment to evaluate medical candidates in real time. By increasing the medical admissions committee’s scope of candidate assessment, a high CASPer® score is essential at securing a medical school interview.

MedApplications™ CASPer Session

Having the confidence, speed, preparation and practice in a simulated CASPer® environment with expert feedback is critical to being competitive in the CASPer® process. Through one-on-one CASPer® preparation sessions, we prepare you to successfully handle even the most challenging of CASPer® scenarios.

The CASPer® Strategy session is a foundational session to teach you the ins and outs of the CASPer® format. The CASPer® Strategy Session is led by an experienced physician with first-hand experience in both participating in and evaluating CASPer®. CASPer® scenarios are typically categorized to test your critical thinking, ethical approach, personal experiences and creativity. Our medical advisors adopt an unparalleled evidence-based strategy to teach you how to successfully approach common CASPer® scenarios. Through our training program, you will learn how to successfully navigate complicated CASPer® questions, stay on time and confidently impress your evaluator.
