This website is built to serve one purpose:

To help international medical graduates get into a US medical residency program.

Take a look at our USMLE infographics.

Read our FREE USMLE e-book to get started.

ASK QUESTIONS! and get straight forward answers.

Most importantly, WHEN you get into your dream residency program, send us a picture and your story and we will publish it on this site as an inspiration to all the dreamers out there.


About me


I’m an Indian IMG, current radiology resident, aspiring author, fumbling artist, finance enthusiast, mediocre researcher, and a total nerd.

To read my blog post, click on the link at the top or click here.

You can connect with me on the Facebook page for Alien, M.D., or follow me on Twitter @alienmd.

I answer questions related to USMLE on Quora.

I generally discourage people from adding me as a Friend on my personal FB account. I’m not active on my personal account and will not reply to messages as often as I do on the official page for Alien, M.D.

If you’d like to receive my latest posts by email, please click the Follow via Email button on the right side-bar.

If you think this is all too much and you’d rather watch Netflix, close this website NOW! Oh by the way, I recommend Marco Polo, House of Cards, and Stranger Things. But hey, no pressure! Good luck with your application!
