Our Differences

The advisors at BMA are NOT peer advisors who only know what worked for us when we applied to residency programs. We are NOT entrepreneurs from other industries who give advice based on compiled admission data while not on actual experience in clinical medicine, academic medicine, or medical admissions.

 

We are a group of professionals with decades of experience in the medical fields who are familiar with every part of the match process. We are passionate about guiding you every step of the way to best convey your personal story, and present you as the best residency applicant you can be.

Our advisory team includes physicians, professional scientific writers and editors, residency program directors, medical school professors, deans, and department chairpersons. We are a diverse group of professionals, working collaboratively, reflecting the real world of academic medicine.

 

We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards. We are honest and straightforward about your prospects of matching to the programs of your dream and what you need to improve. We don’t make empty promises, nor do we offer guarantees. We will help you in the most practical, efficient, and supportive way by offering comprehensive personalized guidance to help you reach your goals.
