But Who Am I?
Why Am I Qualified To Teach This?
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.
