• It was an excellent conference well planned, presented, and well attended.  If individually traveling we may have never enjoyed the kind of reception the participants received throughout their stay in Iran.

  • Thank you very much for the wonderful work you do. I have seen it first hand in Karbala during the Arbaeen camps and my son was fortunate to participate in two of the missions. I have made a donation today.

  • I cannot express the profound impact IMI has had on my life: from the incredible opportunity to serve on the Arbaeen Medical Mission to the insightful career guidance and special programs for Young Leaders that I’ve benefitted from!

  • If InshAllah, I secure a residency in the upcoming match, I will owe the organizers and the speakers at the seminar more than they will take credit for.

  • IMI has been my outlet for philanthropic work since before I entered into high school. It is through IMI that I see my efforts, here in New Jersey, manifest into something much greater around the world. IMI has helped me realize that ambition alone is not enough to change the world; in order to achieve the changes we wish to see in this world we require ambition, vision, and most importantly execution. That is why I have joined IMI, so that my ambition and vision can meet their execution.

IMI Residency Guidance Seminar

12:00:AM New Jersey Hospital Association Conference & Events Center

On September 10, 2016, IMI held its 25th Annual Residency Guidance Seminar at the New Jersey Hospital Association Conference and Events Center that was shared via live stream with over 70 participants from across the world including active participation from Tanzania and Pakistan.

Moderated by Dr. Wajih Rizvi, IMI HQ & Chief, R-Endocrinology, the day-long seminar began with introductions over coffee and individualized CV and personal statement reviews by Dr. Amna Mehdi, Inspira Health Network. For the afternoon sessions, Dr. Shahzad Raza, Columbia University, presented on the residency match process as well as ways to get published in scientific journals. Dr. Shujayat Ali, Penn Highlands Elk & ERHC Pediatrics) joined it via Skype to discuss some insight over the residency match process overall and specific guidance on interviews highlighting major pitfalls to avoid.

The session came to a close following an open question and answer session (via What’s App, Facebook and Twitter for live stream attendees) as well as a discussion focused on feedback from participants regarding the event and what additional mechanisms of support were needed to ensure support for their career trajectories.
