IMG Friendly Internal Medicine Program List
For those of you new to the matching game and those of you who are looking ahead to next year I wanted to share a free list of IMG friendly Internal Medicine Programs posted by sama-sd.org. I don’t have a personal or professional relationship with sama but have not seen such detail on IM programs posted before so I thought it best to bring the list to your attention.
While not complete in every detail, the list includes programs that have historically matched IMGs. Note that the contact person and phone numbers may not be up to date. The urls that I tried worked. Some of the programs only take a few IMGs some programs take mostly IMGs. The university programs will take fewer IMGs than the community hospitals. Some university programs take very few IMGs, some take more.
The list was put together by sama-sd.org. I have not verified the content or information on the list. It is up to you to decide where to apply and what Program criteria fit you. Look at the “Internal medicine programs according to percentage of IMGs” list as well to see which programs have high percentages of IMGs.
The list is meant to be a starting point in your quest for an interview in internal medicine. I hope that the information is helpful.
The following links are excel and word files where you can find the information. Alternatively you can visit the sama site here.
