Your Physician Advisor will help you strategize your application, covering everything you will need to become a competitive applicant in the match. We will help you:

  • Target the right residency programs
  • Identify and fill gaps in your application
  • Plan your medical school coursework
  • Identify letters of recommendation (LORs)
  • Brainstorm ideas for noteworthy characteristics

WRITING

The ERAS personal statement and activities section are crucial in a program director's evaluation of you. Your Physician Advisor will help you shape your story by:

Our advisors understand the residency admissions process for each specialty inside and out.

Frequently Asked Questions

We focus on helping students become physicians. We have been doing this since 2007 with incredible success rates. Our Physician Advisors are actual physicians who have admissions committee experience, not medical students or guidance counselors who know little about medicine.

Your Physician Advisor will be an actual physician who has experience working with hundreds of students through the application process. You are welcome to request a specific Physician Advisor and we will do our best to accommodate it depending on availability.

With thousands of residency positions across the country, we cannot provide a definitive list of the programs. Using our customized and data-driven approach, we will help provide the resources and guidance for you to create a list of high-yield programs.

We do not provide any writing or editing of letters of recommendation. The letter of recommendation is an important document that allows a supervisor to directly communicate their opinions about you to program directors. We encourage applicants to have their professors write the letter themselves.

You will work directly with your Physician Advisor to schedule a day and time. Most Physician Advisors meet nights and weekends.

Yes, parent involvement is welcome. However, this is less common with medical students than it is for the pre-med students we serve.

Yes, you may add on any a-la-carte service or upgrade to another package at any time.
