On March 20, 2020, thousands of senior medical students in the US and international medical graduates (IMGs) from around the world will participate in the NRMP® Match. This yearly event determines who will enter the residency portion of their clinical education, and who will have to try again next year.

Are you a first or second-year medical student? Thinking about the Match already? That's great. You’re already on the right track. Are you an IMG thinking about practicing medicine in the US? Wonderful—we’ve got you covered, too!

To celebrate the Match and ensure you can maximize your opportunities for success in the 2021 Match and beyond, Osmosis is dedicating March to professional development

Throughout March, we’ll be sharing tips and tricks to get you thinking about your future residency applications and showing you what you can do right now to start preparing, including:

  • Forging relationships with mentors

  • Securing great letters of recommendation

  • Improving your grades

  • Building your curriculum vitae

  • And more...

So, you want to know more specifics? 

Let’s jump right in…
