About this book

This unique, socially conscience reference provides valuable guidance to international medical graduates (IMG’s) looking to complete a residency in the United States. The medical residency application process in the United States is competitive and complex. Additionally, many IMG’s go through training programs that sharply differ from the medical school training and the sociocultural elements of United States medicine and residency are unlike any other country. 

 Organized into three parts, this book meets the need for a pragmatic, evidence based guide that answers important questions, and imparts indispensable advice to IMGs. Part I directly tackles the concerns IMG’s have regarding specific elements of residency applications, including the importance of a master’s degree and how to get a strong letter of recommendation. Part II then addresses how to prepare for interviews, preliminary programs and travel. Finally, the book answers the common “what ifs” and “what’s next” questions many IMG’s ponder.

 International Medical Graduate and the United States Medical Residency Application: A Guide to Achieving Success is a first-of-its-kind resource that  presents a holistic view of residency application peppered with real life examples, easy to grasp tables and flow charts and key do’s and don’ts to drive home the complex process involved in residency application.
