Additional IMG Friendly Factors

Our Update Team is trained to gather as much information regarding IMG Friendliness as possible.

For example, a brand new program may not yet have IMGs but is very open to IMG applicants. In this case, IMG Friendliness would appear as: "Program does not currently have IMGs, but will accept applications from IMG candidates".

Additionally, another program might have IMGs, yet not wish to disclose the exact number or ratio.

IMG Friendliness would appear as: “Program is IMG friendly and has an undisclosed number of IMGs”.

Finally, programs that do not accept IMG applicants are not included in Customized Lists for International Graduates.

This way, residency applicants are able to determine not only IMG friendly residency programs, but also the most IMG friendly programs.

IMG Friendliness is an Important Residency Program Criteria

Residency applicants do not want to waste time, money, energy, and effort on programs that are unlikely to consider their application or will not consider them whatsoever.

IMG Friendliness is a program criterion that can help IMG applicants further refine their residency application targeting.Combining IMG Friendliness with Match A Resident’s other core features like Interview-Link and Compatibility Scores makes your Customized List even more accurate, powerful, and effective.
