IMGs who applied this year but were unsuccessful have a once in a life-time
opportunity to meet current residency program directors and seek guidance to
better their chances for a residency position next year.
At the upcoming IMG seminar on March 28th at St Agnes Hospital (Baltimore,
Maryland), program directors along with immigration attorneys will conduct a
workshop for all IMGs.
The directors will go over entire ERAS application, bullet by bullet, and
help IMGs understand what kind of information is expected from them;
information that will help them stand out from the crowd.
They will also give guidelines regarding framework of a personal statement.
This will include basic things like length of a statement or font size to
distinguishing features like what should the first paragraph say, how should
the flow be between paragraphs and how to make the personal statement
convey who you really are and what you bring to the program.
Letters of recommendation will be also covered in great depth. Directors
know that IMGs often write their own LoRs and get signed by their attendings
. Knowing that fact, IMGs can learn from the directors how to write their
own LoRs. Of course, your attending physician has to agree to what you state
on the LoR to sign off on it.
The HIGHLIGHT of the workshop is mock interviews. The directors will conduct
practice interviews with 9 IMGs. At the end of the interview, specific
feedback will be provided pertaining all the aspects of the interview
performance. Simple things like body language to complex issues like how to
address a prematch offer, and everything in between, will be covered in the
A separate segment is being dedicated to disaster management. Not all IMGs
have good scores and not all of them have USCE. Some are old graduates while
others have poor LoRs. How does one compensate for these limitations?
Immigration attorneys, Sheila Murthy and her associate, will be also present
during the workshop to explain the intricacies of various visas.
