Here is Versh from MUA who matched in Alabama family medicine his first choice in USA Dear Dr. Silvermans,
I just wanted to let you know I matched! I was accepted to a family medicine program in Atlanta, Well Start which was my top choice in the US! I wanted to thank you for all your help and guidance along the way. I couldn’t have done this without the support you two provided for me. Your advice was very thoughtful and insightful and greatly helped me during all of my residency interviews.His testimonial below expresses his gratitude, but we also want to thank Versh for being an amazing person and wish you best of luck! We are soooooooooooooooooooooooooo proud of you! I recently matched to WellStar Atlanta Medical Center for Family Medicine – my top choice in the US!

The path of an IMG to securing a residency position in the US or Canada is not easy. There are many challenges and obstacles along the way. I was involved in 2 interview seasons, in ERAS and CaRMS, and had 12 interviews throughout the US and Canada. I encountered a wide spectrum of interview styles, from behaviour questions to situational questions, ethical questions, group interviews, and clinical scenarios. Dr. Lori and Rosalind Silverman equip me with the knowledge and confidence to feel prepared in all of these different scenarios.

During my journey to residency, Lori and Rosalind were there for me every step of the way. They helped me with everything from preparing for interviews to studying for the NAC and the MCCQE Part 1. They provided me with so much valuable advice and guidance. I really appreciated the time and effort they put into their feedback and recommendations. I was able to stand out in my interviews because of the thoughtful and insightful advice they gave me. I also was able to succeed on my board exams thanks to the prep courses they provided.

Lori and Rosalind’s years of experience helping IMGs secure residency in the US and Canada was so crucial to my success. They have a proven track record of helping IMGs attain their most desired residency programs. But I think one of the best strengths of Medical Education Programs is the community you become a part of the moment you step foot in their office. They connect you with so many other like-minded IMGs, all of whom are facing the same challenges you are facing. Here you find support and encouragement, which is so important during the long, and sometimes discouraging, process of attaining residency. You find friends to study with, share resources, exchange study tips and even work on applications together. Lori and Rosalind allow you to use their classrooms to study, so you and your friends always have a place where you can meet.

I could not have done this without Lori and Rosalind. I can never thank them enough for everything they did for me!
