Synopsis

First, the doctors discuss the challenges that international medical graduates (IMGs) face when transitioning to the US for higher education in urology. Knowing oneself and having a purpose are important, as well as preparing for the financial and cultural challenges that come with the transition. They also examine the role of age, mentorship, team work, and preparation in pursuing a training program in the United States. Mentors and advisors can help applicants be aware of the requirements for a full license needed to do research and practice medicine abroad. Additionally, they stress the importance of being open to new experiences, gaining cultural competency, and developing professional skills.

Finally, they wrap up by highlighting the importance of asking for and receiving feedback. They share their personal strategies that they have found helpful in their own journeys, as well as the importance of self-reflection and growth.
