International Medical Graduates

In the 2017 Match, only 54.8% of U.S. citizen IMG participants were matched to first-year positions. Of those IMG participants who were not U.S. citizens, only 52.4% obtained first-year positions (Source: ECFMG®). Dr. Finkel provides tailored assistance to IMGs, as their residency admissions process is more complex and requires more strategic guidance than non-IMG applicants. Dr. Finkel also caters to the needs of the re-applicant.

Insider Medical Admissions does not provide “IMG-friendly” lists of U.S. training programs that are more likely to offer residency spots to IMGs, nor does Insider arrange U.S. hospital clerkships for international medical students, IMGs or postgraduates. Instead Dr. Finkel’s goal is to enhance the application of the IMG by highlighting the applicant’s strengths and significantly improving the quality of the application materials submitted.
