Default Custom List of IMG Friendly Residency Programs

Not long ago I went through the residency application process just like you are going through now. I had passed all my steps, got some USCE, written my PS and was ready to make my list of programs to apply to.

I wanted to apply to multiple specialties and the total number of potential programs I could apply to was over 1,000! I tried to visit the program websites which lacked program criteria, I emailed program coordinators and never heard back from them, etc.

I applied to 200+ programs and spent $5000 but only heard back from 10% of the programs despite my stats being 250s/260s/No Visa needed. It felt like a colossal waste of money. I wish I had an accurate source of information on where to and where not to apply.

Although I did match, the whole process left a bitter taste in my mouth

So myself and a group of other applicants set out to build a tool based on the most up-to date database of programs to help future applicants avoid my experience.

Default Late CK results

Hello
I am an IMG from europe and have done two years of internal medicine in my home country, published 3 papers and hhave done 4 months of electives in North america. Now my step 1 was 229, cs pass on first attempt. I will be writing Ck in end of september and get my score oct 19th. Will there be a huge decrease in the amount of interviews i will get because my CK score will be pending? I will apply to IM only.

Thank you

A lot of programs in NYC are very IMG friendly due to their vast international population. Big cities can be more IMG friendly overall than other smaller programs.
In general the East Coast is way more IMG friendly than the West.

Went on your website. Would be helpful if your software also include attempts/failures such as >1, >3
That will set it apart from what is available online.

Thanks!

Also you will sell more if you sell per specialty.
Plus consider having an opt-in box that shows ppl maybe 5 matches in exchange for an email address. You verify the email and then when they click in their inbox, they can view those 5 matches.
Then you can target selling the rest to them.
Business marketing 101, it will boost your sales by over 200%

Just my thoughts
