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. You will be paired with a medical doctor with specific expertise in the area of specialty in which you are applying, giving you the confidence in your application.
