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.
The ECFMG, provides a centralized avenue to applying to hundreds of American medical residencies across the country. The ECFMG token provides International Medical Graduates access to the MyERAS platform to complete the ERAS medical residency application and ERAS medical residency personal statement. In order to be eligible, candidates required a USMLE/ECFMG identification number. To achieve ECFMG status, candidates require a passing grade in the USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2K, USMLE Step 2CS. Following registration with ERAS, candidates must also register for the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) to participate in the match process.

Jess B (2018)
Accepted to UWO Medicine (MD/PhD)
I enrolled with Med Applications one month before my first interview. I had been preparing for interviews by reading books and discussing questions with friends and family, but I was still nervous and didn’t really know what to expect. I felt so much more comfortable after my session with MedApplications. My instructor was very knowledgeable and catered the session to what I needed work on (as I had both panel and MMI interviews, this was particularly beneficial). It was very useful to cover topics with someone who knew what to expect from an interview and could comment on the quality of my answers. All together the experience was extremely helpful and very reassuring; it significantly calmed my nerves during my interviews. There weren’t any questions I was surprised by in my interviews. I would definitely recommend a session for future students.

“MedApplications helped me with both my essay preparation which brought me to the big interview and with interview preparation. MedApplication's services provided me with not only an insight of how to tailor an application to bring out the best of my ability but it also gave me the confidence I needed to survive the MMIs.

"I used MedApplications mock interview service because I wanted to practice and receive feedback from a current medical student. I found the mock interview helpful in identifying weaknesses in my answers and improving on them to make them stand out. I would recommend MedApplications to anyone who wants extra preparation to gain confidence for medical school interviews."

"I went into my first MedApplications session without a clue about what MMI's were or how to prepare for them. After meeting and practising with Eric and Kent, however, I learned all of the tips and skills I needed to ace the interview. They were incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging and their help gave me that extra boost of confidence on interview day. Thanks MedApplications!"

“Hi MedApplications, just to let you know that Isabelle got an offer from University of London St. George’s College. The competition this year was quite challenging. We would like to thank you and Sarah for your contribution to this achievement. Your services are excellent. Please count us among satisfied clients.”

"I used the MedApplications seminar and mock interview services before I had my interviews at Queen's and McMaster medical schools, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Their seminars were incredibly helpful in providing information about the interview process and ways to truly emphasize your best qualities in an interview. Their mock interview session was great as well as it gave me an opportunity to practice my interviewing style with a current medical student! If you are looking for a way to prepare for an interview as important as the ones for medical school, I would definitely recommend MedApplications."
