IMG Friendly Programs?! The IMG List: Pediatrics 

Which Pediatrics programs are IMG friendly? Which programs accept IMGs in Pediatrics?

The IMG List ūüďį is a huge testimony to the great achievements of international medical graduates (IMGs) ūüĎ©‚Äć‚öēÔłŹūüĎ®‚Äć‚öēÔłŹ matching into top specialties and institutions in the US.

This list will go over IMGs who matched in Pediatrics. Every line of this list is a story of success ūüéď, a story of hard work and determination that will shine ūüĒ• the path for dreamers around the world trying to achieve their goals.

ūüĒé Find the Residency Programs that Match Your Application!

Overview

Each program starts with the name and the program code then the program address, program director name, contact email, current IMGs in the program and which school and countries they come from. Finally, information related to US clinical experience (USCE), USMLE exams and cut-offs, visa, and year of graduation (YOG) is available if provided by the website in addition to a link to each of the program websites.

For those applying to the MATCH¬ģ, you can use this list to assess whether programs have taken IMGs from your school or your country in addition to assessing the criteria available by the program. We understand that so many other factors play a role in residents‚Äô selection, but this is just to provide you with a quick overview of current IMGs in these programs.

As with any work done by humans, there is a potential for error. If you find any mistakes in this list, please let us know through the comments or the contact us page and we will try to fix them as soon as possible.

If you need any help with your USMLE preparation, personal statement, CV editing, interview preparation, residency or research advising, make sure to check out our services here.
