What we do

The Foundation of International Medical Graduates also known as (IMG) was established on February 18th 2020. Our  mission is to educate and empower medical students, recent graduates, interns, newly recruited residents and current seasoned residents of the International Medical Graduate (IMG) path. We wanted to create a safe environment where Medical Graduate across the globe can come together and further teach to others.

What are the challenges?

Being an IMG is tough and competitive. We’ve found a consistent deficit that currently studying IMGs and graduates share, which is why and how this foundation came into effect. 

We’ve found a lack in resources for student guidance as well as a lack of consistency between international schools regarding fully invested guidance for the IMG student community. This initiative was built to provide a safe, supportive and open environment for a student of any level to gain experience and grasp a good foundation of broad knowledge. 

We’ve recognized that most of the IMG community may be the 1st physicians of their family. This is important as these candidates may not have the adequate resources or connections to embark on their medical career journey as efficiently or as strong as their counterparts. 

Given that North America does not reserve IMG spots for their own nationals as of yet, there is a lot of competition for these opportunities. Providing support for these graduates would best serve them in future applications and career development around medicine. 

Additionally, while practicing as a physician is the dream for some of our colleagues, the average pay of a resident can be restrictive and for the graduate who is not practicing, work is often voluntary. To better assist in a financial manner, the practicing and learning physician can focus better on their knowledge advancement and, most importantly, their patients.
