Residents Medical and the USMLE Process

RM Logo square OFFICIALBased in Los Angeles, Residents Medical helps U.S., foreign and international medical school graduates position themselves as attractive candidates for residency programs at top U.S. medical schools. One of the major ways Residents Medical helps its clients is by guiding them through all three United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLEs)

Both in the United States and internationally, medical school students wanting to come to America are typically required to complete the first two steps of the USMLE process before they are officially allowed to graduate. Polling of residency program directors, as well as the insight of Residents Medical over the years, point to scores on these two exams as likely the top two indicators that are considered in residency program applications.

International medical school graduates typically have to go further, however. There is a third step to the USMLE process for them, but unfortunately international medical schools are lacking in their preparation for this step. Residents Medical, however, includes all three steps in its preparation approach and has one-on-one instruction opportunities to help international medical school graduates get on track and gain residency program interviews.
