A Superior and customized program

Our Mission & Program Philosophy


At MedicalObs, our focus is on the applicant’s experience. While there are many programs to choose from to help better prepare oneself for entry into US Medical Residency Programs, what distinguishes us is our customized, integrated, and individualized program curriculum, designed to formulate an action plan to set applicants apart from the competition. Our values and philosophies are centered around the importance of personal growth, innovation, communication, commitment, teamwork, and reliability. Values are powerful and act as the driving force behind human accomplishments and progress. They represent our desire for what we want to stand for, how we want to relate to the world, and how we want to be remembered.

Taking on the challenge of applying to a US Medical Residency Program is not only courageous but also very demanding and competitive. With the rising baby-boomer population in the US and slow increase in new residency programs, there is a greater demand for new physicians. Approximately 94 percent of US senior medical graduates are matched to residency programs; however, this statistic in only 50 percent for Foreign Medical Graduates (FMG). The limited number of application spots for FMGs and increased competitiveness of USMLE Step 1 and 2 scores make securing a place in a US Medical Residency Program an arduous task.

Our mission is to set specific, attainable, and measurable goals within the high intensity integrated program. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Observing on Rounds with US Licensed Physicians in a Hospital-Based Setting
  • Performance and Evaluation Review with Chairman/Program Director
  • Letter of Recommendation from Chairman/Program Director*
  • Certificate of Completion with Honors from MedicalObs & AIIOP*
  • Live Mock Interview Seminars
  • Review and Edit of Personal Statement for Residency Application
  • Complex Clinical Case Reviews and Live Didactic Sessions
  • Accent Reduction and Dialect Coaching Courses
  • Attending Colloquium Guest Speaker Series Run by US Physician Leaders and Coaches
  • Exclusive Alumni Membership Network with US Physicians via MedicalObs
  • Integrated Cultural Experiences with Community Groups and Social Events
  • *Based on a successful performance evaluation
