IMG Residency Matching Strategy Session

IMG Residency Matching

As an International Medical Graduate (IMG), you have complete your training, either medical school or postgraduate residency outside of Canada or the United states. Navigating your way through medical licensing and medical certification can be extremely challenging, requiring a significant time investment and comprehensive understanding of the numerous steps involved.

Our MedApplications™ IMG Residency strategy session is intended to walk you through the entire process of residency matching in Canada (CaRMS) or the United States (ERAS). We carefully assess your current medical school applicant profile, medical transcripts, licensing exams and letters of reference.


For many foreign medical students and residents there is a significant amount of work and planning required to be eligible to apply to a Canadian residency or an American residency. We guide you through the entire process, tell you where to do clinical electives, help with medical observerships, select letters of reference and guide you through all of the medical licensing exams, including the NAC-OSCE (NAC Examination).

Our medical experts are practicing physicians in Canada and the United States, specializing in IMG CaRMS and IMG ERAS matching. Only the most suitable candidates are selected based on the following:

  • Obtaining good scores on your Medical Council of Canada or United States Medical Licensing exams;
  • Professional practice experience;
  • Past performance in medical school;
  • Excellent communication (verbal and written) skills;
    Reference letters;
  • Complete and professional CaRMS and ERAS application; and
  • Your interview (if selected).
