IMG Residency Application

Personal Statement and CV Review for CaRMS and ERAS

As an international medical graduate (IMG), the ERAS and CaRMS residency applications are the most important aspect of your entire residency profile. For many applicants, especially those training outside of North America they are unsure what American and Canadian residency committees and residency program directors are looking for. As the American and Canadian healthcare system are often very different from International healthcare models, it is important that your residency application reflects the medical competencies necessary for CaRMS and ERAS.

Our CaRMS and ERAS medical specialists will help you take the guesswork out of your residency application. We work with you to ensure your CaRMS application and ERAS application is of high quality and competitive. If English is not your first language, we work closely with you to directly edit and enhance your residency application to ensure your experiences and strengths shine.


With thousands of residency spots in the United States and hundreds in Canada, making yourself stand out amongst the competition is imperative to be successful in the ERAS and CaRMS residency match. Your residency application may be your one and only chance to showcase your strengths, accomplishments and suitability for your medical residency program of interest.

MedApplications™ provides you with an unrivalled medical team of professionals representing the top medical specialties in Canada and The United States. With our vast experience serving on residency committees, we provide you with in-depth review, analysis and editing of your personal letters and Curriculum Vitae.

Success Stories

Roxana M

McGill Medicine (MD)

"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.

Jess B

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."

K. Y.

O uf T, UBC, McMaster

"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."


U of A

"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!"

Hana W

University of Ottawa Medicine

“I was accepted at Ottawa which was my ideal school and my only interview. Josh was absolutely wonderful and definitely part of my success! He was very helpful throughout the entire process 🙂


Mother of a High School student for a Pre-Med program

"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.”

Matthew L.

McMaster University Medicine

"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."
