Most of the residency programs have shifted to online interviews during the COVID-19 pandemic. Local guidelines for indoor gatherings and air travel restrictions for the international medical graduates drove this decision last year and this year as well. However, most of the international medical graduates (IMGs) were not familiar with the process of online interviews. Program directors view an online interview as crucial as any walk-in-interview. The interview panel keeps a close eye on many important factors during an online interview. If the candidate happens to miss one of the key points, they may lose the most important interview of their lives altogether.
You can also sign-up for our 1:1 Interview Preparation Program. It includes a 30-minute live interview assessing all aspects of the candidate and application, including communications skills, personal statement, and interview set-up. It also includes a 30-minute counseling session to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your interview and application as well. You will receive a performance report in an email at the end of the session, reviewed by a senior US physician. The enrollment fee for this program is $300 (USD) per session.
