The residency application process is an endless maze of tasks. Residency candidates are expected to study for and take USMLE exams, request transcripts and an MSPE, write multiple, perfectly crafted Personal Statements, ask for and submit Letters of Recommendation, fill out the lengthy MyERAS Application, research hundreds of residency programs, apply to selected programs, follow up with those programs, interview, rank, and participate in Match Week.
Each one of these components is crucial to your Match success and each is time-intensive--but none so much as program research. The time you’ll save by using a Customized Residency Program List can be spent on additional studying, extra revision of your Personal Statement, and polishing your MyERAS Application.
One of the most stressful and time-consuming parts of the Match process is researching programs while trying to prepare the rest of your residency application. This is where you have a choice to make!
Take a look at these two different paths:
Path 1 includes countless hours moving through multiple sources of residency requirements and double-checking potentially outdated and incomplete information. Public databases have thousands of inconsistent entries with no options to customize or filter. Program websites may be updated erratically and do not always state the minimum requirements an IMG needs to know. This can cost you time and energy you can’t afford to waste.
Path 2 lets you access all the residency program information you need in one easy-to-use source with accurate and consistent requirements, including exclusive insights for each program on your Customized Residency List. You also have access to many helpful features and organizational tools to make your program selections and residency application process more streamlined and efficient.
Independent program research using inconsistent sources can be costly, stressful, and a major drain on the time you need to prepare your MyERAS Residency Application properly.
