We assist medical graduates and international physicians currently preparing to apply for US residency positions. We offer inpatient and outpatient observership and externships experiences in various specialties with preceptors located in major cities primarily on the east coast. We offer observerships and externships in a variety of teaching settings including private practices, community hospitals, teaching hospitals, long term acute care centers, and outpatient clinics.
Our physician consultants are experts of the application process and have served as residency members of the application committees of their own hospitals.
These experts can highlight what residency program directors desire in the CV and personal statements of prospective candidates to distinguish them in a very competitive applicant pool. As the first contact with a program director, the importance of an informative and comprehensive CV cannot be overshadowed. Our experts will dissect and edit your CV to be as concise, informative, and organized as possible.
One of the more important factors in a program director’s decision on whom to interview is the personal statement. Used essentially as an interview screening tool, the personal statement should be clear and present the best first impression possible. Our experts have served as parts of the admissions committee and interview committee for years and have read thousands of personal statements and residency application essays.
Assure that your personal statements have been thoroughly checked for grammar, context, and content issues. We can provide opinions and constructive criticism for already strong personal statements. Additionally, our wide ranging services are a great benefit to non-native speakers and international graduates who need help with formatting, writing style, and statement length.
A main factor for program directors across all specialties in deciding who to interview are letters of recommendation within the specific specialty. NRMP residency applicants are able to submit up to four letters or recommendation via ERAS which makes it important to be selective and specific in choosing which to send.
It is recommended that at least half of the available letters of recommendation come from physicians who practice within the desired specialty of the applicant. Candidates who perform adequately are guaranteed assistance in obtaining a written letter of recommendation in support of their application in the specialty of their completed observership or externship.
