Residency Program Lists FAQs

Our residency program lists are built out of a unique online residency program database designed to help you identify the residency programs that you best qualify for. Every residency program has screening criteria and minimum requirements that they use to select applicants for interviews. Our residency program lists help you identify the programs where you meet the minimum qualifications efficiently and effectively.
The process of identifying the minimum requirements for hundreds of residency programs can be time-consuming and laborious. This is time that most applicants simply do not have. The IMGPrep team has already done the work for you, and has compiled all of this critical information into a single database. Purchasing a residency program list from IMGPrep gives you access to all of the minimum requirements for each residency program, and takes the guesswork and the labor out of the process.
A common mistake made by applicants to U.S. residency programs is that they apply to programs without reviewing the minimum requirements. This is a costly and time-consuming mistake. If you do not meet the minimum requirements, your application will be automatically rejected. Every residency program has their own unique requirements, and to effectively plan your application process, you need to know which ones you qualify for.
While you may qualify for a residency program’s minimum requirements, there are other details you will want to know. If a program you are interested in has never accepted an IMG or FMG, it is likely that they are not open to IMG or FMG applications. These are programs that are not considered IMG or FMG friendly! Instead of wasting your limited time and resources on applying to a non-friendly program, you should instead focus your efforts on those programs that have a history of accepting IMGs and FMGs as residents. Our residency program lists will help you refine your plan of action by identifying the programs that are IMG and FMG friendly, and will warn you away from those that are not.
To use the database, enter your specific information in the Residency Matching search box:

  • Are you a Foreign Medical Graduate (FMG)?
  • Are you looking for visa sponsorship (J1 and/or H1B)?
  • Do you have United States Clinical Experience (USCE)?
  • How long have you graduated from Medical School?
  • What are your USMLE Step 1 and 2ck scores?

The IMGPrep residency program database will compare your all of your qualifications against the minimum requirements of each program in the specialty of your choosing. You will then be provided with a customized program list that details the actual programs you qualify for, based upon your individual credentials.

In addition to providing you a list of IMG and FMG friendly programs that you qualify for, your customized residency program list will provide you with the following critical information:

  • Required USMLE Score
  • Minimum year of graduation
  • Required visa status
  • U.S. clinical experience requirements
  • Comments about Exam Attempts
  • ECMFG certification requirements to be invited for an interview
  • Profile of current residents including the percentage of current IMGs and FMGs
  • Email contacts for the program
  • Observership and Externship details for the program
  • Information about alumni
  • Information about fellowship opportunities and Alumni History
  • Information about the city in which the program is located
  • What does a customized residency program list cost?

Each list is $75.00 per specialty.
