When I was a Caribbean medical student I did not have the opportunity to get the perspective of a credible program director.
I honestly wish I had because I am guilty of some of the “faux-pas” Dr. Pierre shares in this interview.
Today’s post, though in an unusual format is timely. ERAS begins receiving applications on September 5th 2019 . Find the IMG ERAS timeline here. Dr Pierre goes into commonly overlooked portions of the ERAS application which matter!
Let me share a little more about our guest:
To me, he is phenomenal Internist, Media Mogul, and Educator. Despite being home on sick leave, he took the time out as a philanthropist and mentor to respond to your burning questions! I guess this is the only way you get a busy PD to slow down, sit down at home and have a couch conversation with IMG’s.
In order to make this specifically valuable for you, I set up a poll on Instagram to ask about what you as an IMG would love to ask a PD and y’all responded. So, I basically asked him all your questions and more!
Before the match, there is a residency application season and there is a lot to learn about this process.

Leave me a comment so I know to bring more of these to you!
My mistakes have turned into the motivation that led me to build imgroadmap.com, an online course that coaches IMG’s on how to prepare all the parts that make up the application packet and season. I mentor IMG’s into the action plan that is necessary to produce results. Results here equate to interviews and eventually the match. Learn more here
