Here you will find resources to help you to put together a stand-out application packet to submit to ERAS. Once you get to this important stage, you will spend a lot of your time and energy putting together an excellent CV (in ERAS format), writing a compelling personal statement and getting excellent letters of recommendation. These tasks can be very challenging for IMGs as most will have not received any clear guidance from physicians familiar with the standards and expectations of the U.S. residency selection system.
Many other important topics related to your application are covered in the articles below, including how to choose a specialty, how search for programs (including IMG-friendly residency programs), and how program directors screen candidates for interviews. You should become familiar with the “match” process itself and how you can maximize your chances of success.
Finally, you will see links to some excellent resources from various websites that will help you to put together your application packet.
