Welcome to the MyResidencyList Blog!

Hello readers!

This is our first blog post and we would like to thank you for visiting. I contribute to this blog to help fellow applicants in the residency match process having gone through it myself. It is a long and difficult journey and having gone through this process I know how important it is to get all the help you can get.

My profile at the time of my residency application

  • A non-Caribbean IMG (International Medical Graduate)
  • My years since graduation were 5+
  • Scored 259 on my Step 1
  • Scored 263 on my Step 2CK
  • Passed Step 2CS on first attempt
  • Score 229 on my Step 3
  • 1 month of US Clinical Experience
  • Received 20+ interviews
  • Matched at my dream program, a university-based program

As you can see aside from my scores I had several red flags such as too many years since graduation, minimal US clinical experience, and the biggest curse of all being a non-Caribbean IMG yet I still matched at my dream program. This blog will share my personal experiences, tips and tricks which will help you match at your dream program just like I did. This was merely just a brief introduction of myself so stay tuned for more blog posts…

      Hi Hadeel, I had 0 connections, with good scores and justification for the time spent since graduation you should be fine

      There are definitely chances of matching, your main focus should be to aim high on Step 2. Best of luck!
