Matching into a U.S. residency has always had its unique set of hurdles for international medical graduates. But throw a pandemic and the USMLE Step 1 2022 pass/fail change into the mix, and the whole process can feel even more challenging than before.

Good news: We created a week-long summit for IMGs and FMGs to address the most urgent questions we've been getting on this front, including:

  • When should I take my USMLEs given the pass/fail change?
  • How has the testing environment changed for IMGs?
  • What about gap years? How can I optimize the year in between match cycles if I don't match?
  • How can I be competitive in terms of clerkships as an IMG?
  • Do you have any tips for how to obtain great letters of recommendation?
  • What qualities can give you the edge during residency applications as an IMG?
  • Any tips for my residency interviews?

A team of our experienced medical tutors and residency consultants — who regularly guide IMGs and FMGs through these processes — fielded these questions and more during our International Student Week-Long Summit, from June 28th to July 2nd, 2021.

Check out the week's content below!

Thank you all for your participation throughout the summit! We covered a broad range of topics, and sincerely hope we helped alleviate some anxiety while providing you with practical tips and tools for you to put to work.
