Frequently Asked Questions About Our Medical Residency Programs List

We hear the same question every year: 


“There are so many residency programs, how do I know which ones to apply to?”


Our answer is simple: IMGPrep’s Customized Medical Residency Program lists. 


What’s the benefit of using your Medical Residency Program lists?

Our Medical Residency Program lists will save you time and money during the application process. Each list is customized to your individual qualifications and identifies all of the programs for which you would be the most competitive, in your chosen specialty. This will help you tailor your application process to focus on only those programs for which you would be the best match.

What information do I need to provide?

Our program cross-checks your individual statistics against our proprietary database of thousands of programs. To customize your list, you will need to provide the following:

  • Visa status;
  • Years of U.S. Clinical Experience (if any); 
  • Years since graduation;
  • Step 1 and Step 2 scores (if any)

Using this data, our algorithm builds you a personalized list that provides you with the information you need to apply to the right programs.  Our lists ensure that you will meet each program’s minimum requirements, and highlight those programs that are “IMG Friendly.”

How will your lists help me save time and money?

ERAS charges a fee for each program you apply to, so the more programs you apply to, the more expensive it gets. Why throw away time and money applying to programs for which you won’t qualify? 

The ERAS Fee chart:

Number of Programs Per SpecialtyERAS Fees
Up to 10$99
11-20$15 each
21-30$19 each
31 or more$26 each

According to the ERAS Fee chart, if you apply to 100 Internal Medicine Residency Programs and 50 Family Medicine Residency Programs, you will need to be prepared to pay over $3,200.00! That isn’t cheap. It is also why it is so important that you apply to the specific programs for which you would be the best fit. Our lists will ensure you do that. 


Isn’t all this information public knowledge? Why should I spend money on this if I can research the programs myself?


Let’s say you are interested in Internal Medicine and Family Medicine, and you need to determine which Medical Residency Programs you should apply to. Well, there are 444 Internal Medicine and 480 Family Medicine Residency Programs in the U.S. If you are like most residency applicants, you don’t have the time (or the patience) to research dozens, let alone hundreds of individual programs! 


That’s why our lists are so important. Our team spends hundreds of hours each year researching and updating more than 3,500 programs in nearly 40 specialties, to build the most complete database in existence. Our team has already done the work for you, so you can focus your limited time on more important things.


Do you offer IMG friendly programs lists in every specialty?


Over the last decade we have continually refined and updated our proprietary residency program list database, and now we have the most detailed database of residency programs and their requirements in the world. 


What is your refund policy?


As each Medical Residency Program list is customized to your individual qualifications, no changes can be made after payment. As a result, there are no refunds or cancellations. So please be sure that the information you enter is accurate prior to purchasing your customized Medical Residency Program lists.
