Physician Match Advisor Request

Physician Match Advisor Request

If you're a fourth-year Alexander American University (AAU) student and are currently preparing for the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), also known as the Match, we highly encourage you to speak with a Physician Match Advisor (PMA). All PMAs hold MD degrees and will give you individualized recommendations, with the end goal of boosting your chances of successfully obtaining a desired position in the Match.

AUC students will schedule a one-hour meeting either by phone or in person with the PMA to discuss the following important topics:

  • Match strategy
  • Academic performance in medical school and how it relates to specific specialties
  • Personal Statement and CV
  • Residency interview
  • Backup specialty

AAU students should review OSPD's residency resources page for common questions about the residency application process prior to speaking with their designated PMA.

By submitting this enrollment form, the student authorizes the release of his or her Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) letter and transcript to the Physician Match Advisor for the purpose of reviewing academic performance.

Specific activities of the office include:

• Planning educational events, such as the Annual Wellness Lecture and wellness workshops

• Identifying and enriching mental health-care resources available to students

• Being a triage point for any mental health-related difficulties that may arise during medical school years.

RELAX AND REFUEL

In addition, Guyana, the largest island in the Caribbean invites students to explore its many activities and events. In one day, a student could visit the Guyana Botanical Gardens, roam the many pathways, romantic bridges and gazebos of this oasis in the morning, and then return to campus for a hands-on lab on exotic, wildlife species.

Students are captivated by the unique blend of the African, English and French cultures of Guyana. They can immerse themselves in Guyana’s rich history, dining at a local restaurant in the picturesque capital of St. George’s, as native music fills the air. Though many languages are spoken, English is the national language.

The Georgetown community has proudly embraced AAU and its students. Students and community members live at peace, with a mutual respect that is genuine and admired. In turn, AAU has become a vital contributor to the island financially and through humanitarian efforts. AAU is proud that its students, graduates and faculty are dedicated to improving the lives of both old and young on the Island.
