Dear Dr. Salimi and Ellie,

I am thrilled to let you know that I matched into family medicine residency at Western this year! I believe my NAC score of 84 and passing QE2 were instrumental in securing a spot. Thank you for your wonderful prep course, I couldn’t have done it without you!

I would also like to be a part of your team and help out with lectures and mock exams for your course. Please let me know!

Kind regards,

I took this course for my NAC preparation and I must say it was excellent. I got an 83 and I would never have been able to do the NAC without this course. Dr. Salimi is a wonderful person who genuinely cares about IMGs and the performance of his students. He is very patient and goes out of his way to answer any questions. The pace of the course is just right in that it gives you sufficient time to learn the material. The simulated sessions with standardized patients in class were incredibly beneficial. I took 2 mock exams that were organized by this course and they prepared me extremely well for the real exam. By the time of the actual exam, I was already familiar with the style. I also made some great friends at the course and continue to be in touch with all of them and we helped each other during CaRMS. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is planning to take the NAC. Absolutely worth it. In fact, a must.

Haibo Xu Dear Dr. Cyrus Salimi and OIMG School Staff, I am writing this email to thank you for your continuous effort on helping International Medical Graduates to re-enter the field of medical service for the people of Ontario. I learned a wealth of clinical skills that could never be found on textbooks through participating the extended course last year, which helped me significantly to enter the Family Medicine PGY1 stream. I sincerely appreciate all your diligent efforts in the past, especially to Daniel and other Standardized Patients, who had accompanied us throughout the year. I wish your school ever success. I would be pleased if I could pay my gratitude to your service in the future. -Dr. Haibo Xu

Dear Dr. Salimi,

It is with great delight that I wish to inform you that I matched to the Family Medicine residency program at the University of Western Ontario, London. I would like to thank the entire team at the IMG School for their invaluable guidance and support for my professional endeavors. You were always encouraging and supportive, Daniel taught me the very essential communication skills needed for success, Reza was always helpful and resourceful and Jinoos organized everything very well. Great news to hear Jinoos also matched to Western FM! I am very excited to have another friend at Western and looking forward to seeing her there.

Dear Dr Salimi , Dr Jinoos , Reza and the rest of the IMG school staff ,

I wanted to express my sincerest gratitude to your program. I joined the IMG school in preparation for the NAC-OSCE while concurrently studying for my USMLs. I really think the structured and concise curriculum and the amazing support I received from the school and from the study group I met there made the difference in my scores. I scored 85 on my NAC-OSCE and am very please to inform you that I got matched to Medical Biochemistry at McMaster University. Thank you very much for your support.

Hello Dr. Salimi, Daniel and Sepideh!

I attended the Ontario IMG NACOSCE course in the summer of 2015, and I found it to be incredibly helpful in preparing me for the exam. I particularly liked the fact that there were current residents teaching us, and the cases that they taught were very resemblant as to what I saw in my exam.

Also, I would like to give a shout out to Daniel, who is an amazing actor, and played the role of an SP very well. As, an IMG, I found his feedback on mannerisms, posture and colloquialisms to be very helpful as well.

I was able to get a great score, thanks to your course, and with that, I matched to my first choice Internal Medicine Residency Program – McMaster!

Thanks again, and I wish you all the best in your endeavours.
Let me know if there is any way I can be of service!

I got matched this year to U of T Family Medicine Barrie/Newmarket stream!

Thank you for all your help!!! The OSCE preparation was most helpful. Acing the NAC is important to get to the interview stage.

And a big “thank you” to Sheila as well. I asked for professional help during the interview preparations and I met Sheila through IMG School. Her tips on interview skills had undeniable impact on my residency interview

Again, thank you very much to Ontario IMG School.

Best of luck to other IMGs. God bless!

Dear Jinoos & Dr. Salimi,

I am so pleased to share my happiness with you and all other IMGs for my successful attempt in Family Medicine residency program. As a student of IMG School, I would like to thank you for all your help and your very exceptional OSCE classes. Your great organization, excellent instructors and your enthusiasm to support IMGs are beyond and above the expectation. It was definitely my first exposure ever to OSCE exam preparation and turned out to be the most positive outcome for me which undoubtedly well contributed to my success. I wish I could find a proper word to thank you. I truly appreciate your time, your passion to help and your hard work to provide IMGs with these outstanding classes.

I wish you and our resilient IMG family all the best and great success to come.
