"Dr Lum was and is still incredibly committed to my success. I call her "my fairy godmother". Without ever meeting me, she made my questions a priority and was very responsive. She opened doors for me remotely. Dr Lum was so resourceful and researched everything, advising my accurately. It would have been impossible for me to make the strides I have made during this USMLE and Match period and most especially matching into one of my top choices without Dr Lum."
- Dr. Katy Baye, Matched into OBGYN 2020
Residency Match Rates in 2020 were the highest they’ve been in thirty years!
According to the ECFMG of the 7,376 IMGs who matched, 3,154 are U.S. citizens and 4,222 are citizens of other nations. Sixty-one percent of IMG applicants were selected by U.S. GME programs in the highly competitive Match process, the highest IMG match rate in 30 years.
But with this rising match success comes fierce competition for interviews and placements.
And what’s more, statistics show that IMG applicants who are not U.S. citizens at the time of graduation need to score an average of 10 points higher in written exam stores than U.S. citizens to be matched.
So how do you gain a massive competitive advantage as a foreign graduate?
The IMG Roadmap is helping students who use it to significantly outperform the competition and increase their chances of getting matched.
"Dr. Lum’s roadmap e-course was an incredibly useful tool that helped prepare me for my residency application season. As a first-time applicant with a failed attempt at USMLE step 1, I knew I needed all the help I could get if I had any chance of matching in to residency. Dr. Lum’s course not only provided useful studying resources and tips that helped me achieve a USMLE step 2CK score of 253, her course also included tips on finding IMG friendly programs, advice on how to make your application more attractive, one-on-one help with personal statement writing and developing good interview skills. She was always ready to help and did it with an understanding and caring attitude. I am happy to say that I matched into residency on my first try and with only ONE interview, thanks to God and all that I learnt on Dr. Lum’s IMG Roadmap E-course!!"

The IMG Roadmap was created out of a need for actionable information and guidance in medicine, with you in mind. As a foreign/medical school graduate, the IMG Roadmap will help you take the next vital steps in your career.
Here’s what to expect:
"As an IMG applicant, I faced a lot of obstacles during my previous application cycle but Dr. Lum’s course was a turning point in my journey - resulting in me matching into the residency program at the top of my rank order list! The IMG Roadmap course provided me with useful information on how to approach every step of the application, from how to obtain strong letters of recommendation, to incorporating extracurricular activities into the ERAS application. Dr. Lum was very upfront about expectations but was also very patient and supportive throughout the process. She emphasizes the importance of a growth mindset and gives you the tools to succeed, but you have to put in the work and do her assignments!!!! Prior to submitting my application after the course, I could notice a marked difference in my application compared to that from last year. This course provided a roadmap with tangible action plans that contributed to my success. So if you’re an IMG applicant who would like a coach, a mentor and a step by step guide for completing your residency application, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Lum’s course! "

Is There A Guarantee?
Anyone with a drive to learn and implement the coachinglaid out in this course can succeed regardless of the competition.
This is an investment that will pay back dividends for years to come, setting you on the right path for a career with purpose.
But consider this.
What’s Is It Costing You By NOT Take This Course?
Aside from a fulfilling medical career in your dream field?
Every single interest you have or send to residency programs is wasted unless you’re using the tips I outline in the IMG Roadmap. And the time you spend worrying about your chances of getting positive responses could be used to accelerate your learning and make an impact in the medical world.
Consider this course a personal coaching and seasonal mentorship from a seasoned medical professional who’s walked the talk, so you can too.
How often do you get this level of guidance from an attending physician who has been where you are?
But more importantly, how often do your competition?
It’s time to set yourself apart with the IMG Roadmap.

I’m Dr. Lum, a board certified in Family Medicine physician and upon residency graduation I was Chief Resident at The University of Kentucky Rural Track/St. Claire Regional program in 2015.
In 2012, though a Cameroonian citizen, I obtained my Doctor of Medicine from a Caribbean medical school; The University for Sint Eustatius, Netherlands Antilles.
Between 2016 and 2018, I worked with US medical students as a community-based preceptor for third and fourth-year medical students of LMU-DCOM out of Tennessee.
As one of the original co-authors of the best selling medical anthology "The Chronicles of Women In White Coats". I blog at http://www.drninalum.com and where my challenges as an IMG led me to be a self-acclaimed educational coach for International Medical Graduates affectionately known as IMG's.
As a non-US IMG, and based on my arduous life experiences with assimilating into the American medical system, I help IMG's to achieve success through group and personalized coaching. To reduce bias with my proposed methods, I conglomerate experiences from multiple IMG's on my website (drninalum.com) and podcast (The IMG Roadmap Podcast) known as "The IMG Roadmap Series". My book "Still MD: Two Physician's Advice for International Medical Students & Graduates" has helped IMG's with success blueprints for our unique pathway.
This coaching program was developed to fill a void based on the overwhelming demand for information pertinent to successful international/foreign medical graduates.
