With a comprehensive menu of online offerings as well as a complete array of print books and digital products, Kaplan offers preparation for more than 90 standardized tests, including entrance exams for secondary school, college and graduate school, as well as professional licensing exams for attorneys, physicians and nurses. Throughout its history Kaplan, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Graham Holding Co., has consistently expanded in both its size and scope and is now one of the largest and most diverse educational providers in the world with over 1 million students across 500 locations in more than 30 countries.

Medical Residency in the United States

International medical graduates (IMGs) consistently represent approximately one fourth of the physician workforce of the United States. To enter a residency training program, IMGs must be certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). These candidates must pass USMLE exams and graduate from a medical school that is recognized by and listed with ECFMG’s International Medical Education Directory (IMED). Only then can they receive a certificate which allows them to sit for the USMLE Step 3 exam and/or participate in a U.S. medical residency or fellowship program.

Attaining a medical residency in the US is very possible for international medical graduates but it requires a competitive application. In 2015, approximately 50% of international medical graduates obtained medical residency positions.
Critical Factors for successfully attaining a US Medical Residency are competitive USMLE scores and a complete and well done application. Kaplan Medical assists our students every step of the way to ensure they have the tools and support to be an exceptional candidate.

Over the coming years demand for post-graduate training among foreign-trained graduates is likely to remain strong, particularly with the belief that the U.S. will be facing a significant shortfall in trained physicians over the coming decades.

United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE). The USMLE is a multi-part professional exam designed to assess a physician’s ability to apply knowledge, concepts, and principles, and to determine fundamental patient-centered skills that are important in health and disease and that constitute the basis of safe and effective patient. Physicians with an M.D. degree are required to pass this examination before being permitted to practice medicine in the United States of America.
