Target Your Residency Application
Match A Resident's (MAR) unique platform helps you apply smart by taking the hassle out of identifying and contacting residency programs in the US. We provide you with the most compatible residency programs while you focus on preparing an efficient and strong ERAS Residency Application.
How Many Programs Match Your Credentials?
Find your Residency Match with your Personalized Residency Program Requirements Lists
Give yourself the best resources to successfully compete in The Match® during the 2016-2017 Medical Residency Application Season with Match A Resident’s Customized Specialty Program Lists.
U.S. medical residency programs are known to screen residency applications using program requirements filters. Residency applicants are responsible for finding and learning about each residency program individually. The average residency applicant wastes up to a month or more researching, and hundreds of dollars applying to residency programs with requirements they do not fulfill.
Match A Resident guarantees time and money saved by providing our members with unique, up-to-date, reliable, and customized IMG friendly lists of medical residency programs across 18 medical specialties. The Residency Program Matching Algorithm will compare your registered Applicant Criteria with the requirements from the Residency Program Database to create a strong and customized list of residency programs to help you increase your potential to obtain interviews and Match.
Each Customized Specialty Program List is complete with:
- Program Contact Information
- Detailed Program Requirements such as USMLE exam scores, IMG friendliness, Time Since Graduation Cut-Offs, Application Deadlines, ECMFG Certification, and more
- Extra information as indicated by the programs themselves
- Additional filters for USMLE Attempts, Deadlines, and Bookmarks
- A complimentary Unfiltered IMG Friendly List
- Extensive Program Interview Feedback and Reviews from past residency candidates organized for you by the Smart List feature
- ...and much, much more!
With the extra time, money, additional resources and expert residency guidance, your residency application efforts have never been stronger.
Excellent program, very personal and made me feel like I was already part of the program, the residents were very helpful and program director was available as well for questions. Housing tour was done as well!
Interview experience at: University of Tennessee (Jackson) Program
Precise, accurate and straight-forward lists that made my last year residency application go smoothly. Way to go MAR.
Great program overall, very personal and tour was great. staff and residents were very forthcoming with information and with answering questions. interview was laid back and not stressful at all.
Interview experience at: University of Tennessee Program
I believe that St V's had the best method to interview a candidate because they knew all about me by the end of the meeting. I was made to sit individually with a faculty member for 30 mins & that made them as aware about my personality as any program can get.
Interview experience at: St Vincent Hospital and Health Care Center Program
Spend 2 weeks calling programs and with low scores I admit it was not an easy task. MAR made it easy for me and they are helpful any time I needed them. Mar is must, period.
Small town but great staff and very nice clinic. The program is relaxed and unopposed. The hospital is a small but the residents are held in high regards.
Interview Experience at: University of North Dakota (Minot) Program
A friendly program with all of it's residents appearing to be enthusiastic and very professional. Faculty were also very encouraging overall an excellent program.
Interview experience at: John H Stroger Hospital of Cook County Program
Great service and very confident of the results. Got 6 invitations in the last 4 weeks. Very satisfied with my customized list.
Match a resident basically centralizes all the admission criteria of programs in your speciality that are compatible with your credentials. One is able to make better decisions on which program to apply to.
It is a good source of information about programs for IMGs because it narrows down the number of programs that you can apply for. Although we pay for this service, you can save time that can be equal to money.
I pre-matched on Tuesday, Nov 26th, 2013, in the hardest residency match season to date. I used the Match a Resident List for Internal Medicine to target strategically the programs that are IMG friendly. I highly recommend Match A Resident.
Using this website is really easy and everything is to the point!
I am very happy with the service provided by MAR. It gives you great insight into a program. I would recommend it to every applicant. Good job done by Zeffy and his dedicated team.
This is simply a great company that made my life a whole lot easier. An absolute must for any IMG wishing to apply for residency. It is worth every penny. Obtaining information isn't easy, and they've done a great job thus far. Please keep up the good work.
Match A Resident information is updated regularly and I really love the Smart List. The price was reasonable and the service was great.
