How We Help Candidates to Secure Top Choice Residency Positions (CaRMS)/(ERAS)
Although candidates for residency positions have successfully gained acceptance to medical school, the application process for residency is different. The difficulty is not obtaining a match – but rather securing your top choice in a highly competitive process.
We assist medical school students with:
Review of Personal Letters (CaRMS) / Personal Statements (ERAS)
The personal letter / personal statement is an important step in introducing yourself to residency programs. Selection committees commonly point to this document as a key factor that distinguishes among similarly qualified candidates and sets the stage for possible interview questions.
We make recommendations on how you can improve your personal letter / personal statement to increase the chances of securing your desired residency position. First, we review your past experiences and achievements and provide suggestions on how you can make your application more effective. Then we comment on tone, style, vocabulary and grammar to ensure you produce the best application possible. Our goal is to ensure your application highlights your profile and clearly communicates why you should be accepted into your chosen program.
Mock Interviews for Residency Positions
Studies have shown that the series of interviews that you will have during the residency selection process will often count more toward getting you into the program than your performance during your previous years of medical studies. For many specialties and locations, the competition is fierce. You must be well-prepared to convince a selection committee that you are the ideal candidate for the position.
