B. Make certain you meet specific state or province requirements

Depending on where you are applying, different provinces and states have their own special requirements. In some cases, you may have to provide additional documentation or forms to verify your medical degree. It is also possible you will be asked to complete additional examinations, or sign an agreement indicating you are committed to practicing in a medical specialty for a specific window of time.

C. Demonstrate your true worth and fit.

The truth is your application will have to stand out and be exceptional, over and above many others who completed their degree here in North American medical schools. For IMGs in Canada and the US, securing residency means extra attention and hard work to make the strongest pitch possible.
