The First Aid Team is looking for motivated international medical graduates (IMGs) from non-US medical schools to contribute to our First Aid Team blog (www.firstaidteam.com).

Do you have strong English writing skills? Can you commit to generating posts for a biweekly column focused on issues encountered by IMGs trying to match into U.S. residency programs (i.e. the NRMP Match, logistics of interviews, visas, ECFMG certification, etc.)?

If you are interested in applying for this position, please send the following materials to us at info@usmle-rx.com.

  • Curriculum Vitae (CV) or resume
  • Medical School GPA
  • USMLE score(s)
  • Writing Sample (English only)
This position is a one-year term, and the selected individual will receive a generous stipend as well as the opportunity to work with First Aid authors.

    Any kind of writing sample will do. An essay, article, or short paper you’ve written that highlights your writing style and skill. Doesn’t matter what subject. We just need to verify your style and writing ability.
