Specializing in CaRMS

The competition involved in attaining a medical residency in Canada as an International Medical Graduate (IMG) has become increasingly challenging, with slimmer odds of acceptance with each CaRMS medical residency application year. With over 12,000 International Medical Graduates (IMGs) applying to CaRMS annually and only 340 dedicated IMG residency positions available, there is a tremendous amount of competition for coveted medical residencies in Canada of all medical subspecialties. Of the over 12,000 International Medical Graduates (IMGs) who apply to CaRMS, only 2000 are deemed eligible to participate in the CaRMS IMG stream match process.

With these challenging odds, many International Medical Graduates would benefit from assistance in enhancing their medical residency IMG application, medical residency IMG interview, in addition to medical residency supports for required Canadian medical residency licensing exams, including the LMCC Part I, LMCC Part II, MCCE and the NAC-OSCE.

Specializing in ERAS

Applying to the United States medical residency program as an International Medical Graduate is a competitive and challenging process, with a tremendous amount of competition worldwide. The National Residency Match Program (NRMP) processes over 42,300 applications annually, growing approximately 5% each year. On average, there are over 17,500 Foreign trained medical graduates applying for American medical residency positions each year.

The most recent match rates for Foreign trained medical graduates and International Medical Graduates was less than 50% over the last 5-years emphasizing how difficult it has become to be successful in the American medical residency match process.
