About the E.R.M.I Program and a Few FAQs

When you’re ready to start applying for residencies, you’ll find there’s a lot of competition out there.  Put together a professional residency application package working with industry experts who help you prepare tailored applications for the specialized residency programs you want to join.

ERMI is an acronym coined by the team at MedSmarter and simply a method to teach each medical student how to prepare for residency.  Let’s examine the E.R.M.I. residency preparation procedure in depth:

  • E = Essay
  • R = Resume
  • MI = Mock Interview

Essay (Personal Statement)

In addition to test scores and CVs, Residency Program Directors examine your essay, also known as a personal statement, very closely. This helps them determine if you will be the right fit for their program.

Work with your assigned editor one-on-one to develop an initial outline and identify concepts and ideas that are relevant to each individual residency application. We ensure you have a personal statement that stands out from the crowd in the most professional manner.

Resume (Curriculum Vitae)

One of the most valuable tools in the residency application process is your resume. Many med students make the mistake of presenting resumes that are cluttered with information thinking that will impress the committee. This only makes the CV difficult to read and buries any information that may have been relevant among the clutter.

Let us help you prepare a CV that highlights your experience and professionalism in the medial industry. Our writers ensure your medical career resume is in a format that’s professional and easy to read with the precise information recruiters look for in a CV.

Our residency interview preparation coaches understand the process. They will train you on how to showcase your unique abilities in a way that is appealing to the masses, yet unique too.  Mock Interviews can be scheduled live in person or live online.

Each mock interview residency prep session is specific to the individual applicant. They range from easy to difficult scenarios to prepare med school candidates for fast-paced realistic interviews.
