My name is Umair and I completed medical school at Shifa College of Medicine in Islamabad, Pakistan. Being an IMG, I realized how difficult it is to obtain residency in the U.S. My struggle for residency was complete in March 2011 by matching to an Internal Medicine Categorical position at UT Southwestern-Austin. I planned on writing a book on how to get into residency as an IMG, mainly for those like me who did not understand the Match and all the steps required to get into residency. By suggestions from friends, I decided to create this website to share the knowledge now, and not wait a couple years for a book to be published. Everything written is from my experience, friends’ advice, and research online. I hope this website can help those who want to pursue residency in the U.S. and wish them the best of luck in the future.
