From Red Flags to Residency

"Old" Graduate + Competitive Specialty

I was told that getting OB-Gyn even as a new grad was hard. As someone that graduated over 19 years ago, it would be impossible. I'm forever grateful to Dr Brian for believing in me and pushing me to believe in myself.

Dr D Swaminarayan, OB-GYN: Year of Graduation 1999. Matched in 2018

Competitive Specialty + Discouraged by Peers

When I first Met Dr B, during our 1st advisor session (360), I had told him my application was for internal medicine, which my CV supported. But after getting to know who I am as a person, he asked, "IM? Your personality is more Gen Surgery". He was right, I was only applying to IM because my friends said my USMLE scores were not competitive enough. Not only did I get into Gen Surgery, when a door opened up for radiology, Dr B helped me kick that door down and it's changed my life's trajectory!"

USMLE Failures, Old Graduate, Gap & No Recent USCE

So many people around me had their opinions on my whether or not I should continue this 'impossible dream'. I had responsibilities - as a wife and a mother of 2. Mission Residency reminded me that my struggles over the years have made me more ready for residency than I ever could have been when I first graduated in 2003.

Dr Ruth G, 2003 YOG, 2 Attempts Step 1, out of clinical medicine for nearly a decade, no recent USCE. Match in 2021.

Changing Specialties

I had already settled for a backup specialty - the only one I could get was the FARTHEST away from my first choice specialty (IM) in terms of skillset. Dr B got me back on the right track and into my first choice ranked Internal Medicine residency!

Path To Residency: 3 Ways to LEVEL UP

1

LEVEL 1: Match Interview Bootcamp

Live interactive training to expand your arsenal of High-Yield skills & techniques that are necessary if you want to win your
residency through your interview. You'll enjoy 5 productive sessions with Dr Brian and your classmates/practice partners,
with meetings that are scheduled to fit around your busy US Clinical, Research, and work schedule.

2

Level 2: Match Interview MasterClass

This option INCLUDES Level 1 Training and takes it to the next level...and is there for you for the entire season. You'll gain the advantage
of direct feedback & guidance from Dr Brian through bi-weekly Mock Interview, Practice, and Advisory Sessions with your team. During group sessions, you'll get individual attention & evaluation throughout the season. No judgements. We stress POSITIVE Reinforcement & constructive criticism + recommendations to help you grow. PLUS no more searching random forums for strangers to practice with...you'll have TRAINED partners to practice with in between Mocks IV's with Dr B that will know your strengths & be aware of what you need to work on. Past alumni mention the support structure as a top 3 reason why they've referred friends & family to train with Mission Residency.

Level 3: 360 Elite & Advanced Match Mentorship

This option INCLUDES EVERYTHING offered in Level 1 AND 2 Training PLUS . . . the opportunity to work longer and closer with Dr Brian. In fact, 360 docs have access to contact Dr B on his personal mobile if needed. You'll literally be under his wing : meeting privately to plan and adjust gameplans to make you and your CV stronger, smaller group sessions, extended personal advising sessions and more. On top of that, we've included Our 1-on-1 Full-Day Advanced Training (a $1999 course by itself) and personalized personal statement guidance. While this training option is built to help everyone, it's main purpose is to help docs that feel that their red flags will mean fewer interview opportunities, have little room for error and may only have 1 or 2 interviews to Match. Doctors going for HYPER competitive specialties/programs also have tended to lean towards this course option.

What Makes Us Different From Others?
Mastering the Interview has VERY little to do with the USMLE. Fact.

Accessibility & Continuity of Care

You work DIRECTLY with our in-house Match Specialist, Dr Brian. We don't pawn you off to work with random residents with minimal/if any interview or communications training experience that that barely know you - seriously, other programs actually do that. As part of the Mission Residency Family, you'll build a relationship with a teacher that learns your strengths & weaknesses, offers personalized advice, and is there for you next practice knowing how far you've come and where you'd like to go.

Commitment

Match Guarantee
We are so confident that Mission Residency trained doctors have the strongest opportunity to Match that we've guaranteed it for YEARS. We're with you until you successfully Match. At no point in your residency journey will you need & want a teacher to actually get to KNOW WHO YOU ARE to help you succeed. For Dr Brian, this is THE WAY you help a doctor Match.

Expertise

This is what we do. We live & breath the Match. There is no other job to fall back on for any of us. You get a job (as a resident), we continue to have a job helping future residents.
Dr Brian has gone ALL IN for Mission Residency. If he doesn't take care of you, then he can't take care of his family.
Other programs? Helping IMGs Match is something they do on the side. What's worse? They'll pawn you off on a busy resident with little/no experience in training docs for interviewing/communication skills.

Guidance

Personalized mentorship. We don't guess on guidance. Just like you would with your patients, Dr Brian will advise you based on your personal & professional history...and your tendencies he's seen over the course of your training.

Quality

From Day 1, our focus on IMGs meant Staying Ahead of Curve. Why? IMGs naturally have a statistical disadvantage in the Match. By staying ahead of trends and adapting to changes, we do things that other programs only think to do..after they've seen our students do it.

Community

The Road to Residency can be a lonely one. Really lonely. Even on forums and Facebook groups, you're really interacting with random strangers with nothing at stake if you Match or Not.
The second you join your Mission Residency training you're part of...
A Team.
A Family.
A Network.

What should I expect from my Mission Residency Training?

What Should You Expect?

While each of our courses offers different levels of training, ALL Mission Training share the following goals:

Holy Sh*t, Mission Training isn't CHEAP!
True. But neither is the private school many US doctors (like you)
eventually send their kids to...

If you got this far, then you know exactly why your parents/family prioritized education: it's what will change you and your children's lives. Education is a sacrifice.
Why do so many professionals lean towards sending their kids to PRIVATE School, when we could save a LOT just sending them to public school? Why not use that money for a nice vacation, a bigger tv, or nicer clothes, instead? Simple: A better education is the golden bullet that can level the playing field.

Mission Residency is an investment. With Match Success Rates from 86% to 92%+ over the years for docs that utilize their training during interviews, it's investing now to make sure you don't miss out on the $55,000-$60,000+ salary you'd get as a first year resident this coming season and THEN have to spend another $2000-3000 on Application costs next cycle. Mission Residency isn't Cheap, but NOT Matching IS WAYYYY more Expensive.

As a Mission Doc, you'll have the advantage of:

What You'll learn will drastically improve your communication skills & relationships...EVERYWHERE.

Your Life is ONE BIG INTERVIEW...Think about it...

01

During US Clinical Rotations & Research

So, how would you treat this patient? What were your findings during the study?

02

With your Significant Other/Children/Family

Honey, why didn't you take out the garbage last night? Are we there yet? What are your plans this week? Where do you want to go out to dinner? Are you mad at me? Can I please have _________?

03

Work/Your Practice as a Physician

Doc, am I going to be ok? How does that medication work? What are my other treatment options and why? I don't want to talk to you, can I get a more experienced physician?

04

Oh, and of course... Match Interview, Too!

Tell me about yourself... Why should we take you in preference to another candidate? What have you been doing since you graduated medical school? If you had 5 minutes to live, what would you tell a stranger? Present an interesting case . . .

"I'm at Harvard today doing a fellowship in Pediatric Interventional Radiology learning & working alongside incredible human beings that love what they do...saving lives. I can say the same for the team at Mission Residency. To me, they're family. Dr B is my brother from another mother."

ABR IR/DR Board certified, Pediatric Vascular & Interventional Radiology Fellow at Boston Children's Hospital/Harvard Medical School

Imagine This Day: You Find Out You've Matched.
This is what it looks like in the Mission:Residency Classroom...

That's Not All . . .

Match Season Primer Session

F the Algorithm. Want to know how the Match REALLLLY Works? And what you can do between NOW and February that will actually make a difference? (besides interview like a master, of course). During this important session that takes place during the start of training, Dr Brian will walk you through the ins and outs of how the USMLE, USCE, Research and other CV-related building blocks of your application can help & hurt your chances at scoring interviews...and how to take advantage of that knowledge!

Personal Statement Primer

If you've applied before and got only a few (or no) interviews, chances are your personal statement didn't help you the way it could've. In fact, a quick check of all the NRMP Program Director Surveys will reveal that the PS often in the Top 5 on a long list of factors that determine if you'll get an interview offer or not.
Dr B will show you the MOST COMMON mistakes and how to use your interview strategies to turn your PS into the Pre-Interview document it should be.

Pre-Interview Fine-Tuning CheckUps

Mission Residency training is about growth. Your goal is to improve from one interview to the next, growing throughout the season. That means making adjustments along the way. Outside of practices and mock iv's, one major reason why our docs MOST often match at their 1st choice ranked program? The Pre IV Check, where you'll go over any program specific for your upcoming week's interviews.

We Know We Can Get You Matched... Guaranteed:

We won't give up on you if you don't give up on yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ans:  If you were training for the Olympics taking place later this year (any sport), how soon should you start training?  The sooner the better, right?  If a patient wanted to be healthier in the fall in time for his/her wedding, when should they begin doing things to improve health?  Yesterday.  The fact is the more time you give us to prepare you, the more prepared you’ll be.  So if you have a choice between a midsummer IV Prep Masterclass (Session C) or a fall IV Prep Masterclass (Session E), choose the earlier one…the COST OF TUITION is the same.  We’re encourage docs to make us work harder & longer for you.   The difference is that Session E has the added challenge of having to master what they learned FASTER (and less room for error).

Ans: Quick Answer:    If you take a look at the comparison table on the enrollment page, you’ll find a section noting who the course is best suite for.  Longer Answer: The Simple Answer?  Well, it depends on the strength of your CV & Communication Skills. Generally the weaker your CV (fewer IVs) & English/Communication Skills, the more we recommend 360 or the earliest IV Prep Masterclass session. Another thing: While 360Elite has everything we can possible offer to get someone Matched, it’s not for everyone (based on need or budget).  The Match RATE for IV Prep Masterclass is just as high as 360Elite.  The difference is that 360 has a tendency to Match into first choices AND/OR need fewer interviews to successfully Match.  

Ans: Well, we’ve done it before and we’ll continue to do it over and over again.  Dr Brian is a BIGGGG believer that his IMG’s deserve to get into their 1st choice specialty.  They’ve sacrificed WAY too much not to.  We can’t tell you how many times we’ve had students end up with us that were told by other “mentors’/programs that they should give up on Internal Medicine or Surgery…even Psych, and just apply to an easier specialty.   That’s like telling a vegetarian to just go eat meat and enjoy it.  There is ALWAYS a way to help a doctor navigate to the speciality they were born (and LOVE) to do. 

Ans: We generally don’t offer discounts, mainly because our classes fill up without them. HOWEVER, the two instances in the past where we’ve made an exception:  Early Season Enrollment & direct family member/husband/wife of a past/current alumni.  For the Early Season, simply click the following link to check if a promo code is currently active (usually April/May).  The farther into the season we go, the less likely there will be open slots/promo opportunities.
