How To Prepare & Write A Competitive Personal Statement for Residency Application

IMG's do not write your personal statement without taking this course!

Pitch yourself with your personal statement !

Do you have a compelling Personal Statement (PS) yet?

Several IMG's (like you) are extremely intelligent and talented but fail to portray that in their personal statements!

Are you self aware and can identify your "strengths" and "weaknesses" but are uncertain as to how to present that in a personal essay for your ERAS application?

Maybe your personal statement is vague, generic and lackluster. It fails to HIGHLIGHT to what residency programs really want from applicants.

Stop here ...

Is this your best essay? Does it "sell" you well?

One mistake IMG's make is not identifying their target audience in the PS.

Does this one page document answer questions your future program director has after they review your ERAS application?

Does it paint you as a potential intern at "your dream program" ?

The 2018 program director’s survey showed that 78% of programs (all specialties) combined ranked the personal statement at a 3.5 out of 5 when it came to mean importance in selecting candidates for interviews.

I have been reviewing personal statements on both sides of the coin.

First, as a chief resident member of interview committee and then as an attending physician/previous IMG. I made several mistakes with my statement as a student.



"Dr Lum is Godsend to all IMGs. She has such a detailed guide for anyone who needs guidance for residency application. I took all her advice during my residency application process and I must say I owe part of my success to her. Her course helped me build my confidence for my interviews and ensured that I asked the right questions during my interviews. She also helped me with reviewing my personal statement to ensure that it presented me in the best light possible. Also, she has a step by step guide for how to obtain your visa when you do match which was very helpful and informative. I believe that all IMGs should enroll in her program. It would be the best investment you can make for yourself. I 100 percent recommend her and she is always available to answer all questions you might have."

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. You will have all PDFs immediately available to begin drafting your own personal statement. At the end of the course you will have a statement ready BEFORE myERAS opens.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first day and we will give you a full refund. After this time we believe the knowledge is best for you to save for future use.
Why should I pay to take this course?
You are making a small sacrifice for a great reward for being granted access to the directions in this course. Look at this as an investment equivalent to the cost of a few trips to Starbucks, or the price of a pair of jeans that won't get you into residency! This course is hugely discounted and over priced at other vendors that you have seen on the internet who aren't physicians or iMG's for that matter! Sign up now and do not delay!

Obviously this course will help you create your personal statement, one that I believe will make the programs glued to what you are conveying across from start to finish. What it cannot do though, is guarantee you a residency position. Results of my work vary from person to person.
