I truly appreciate all AIMGA has done for me

I cannot thank you enough for the support you have given me over the last year. There are certain times in a person’s life when you fully understand the value of a professional support. Thanks a lot Deidre, Kim, Monica, and Mahenaz for your great effort in organizing different exam preparation courses, mock exams, and friendly advice. I truly appreciate all AIMGA has done for me.

Mehdi Houshmandi

The services are phenomenal

The services and stepwise guidance provided at AIMGA are phenomenal. It is a one stop center for IMGs to answer their questions related to pathways into different health care professions or back into practice of medicine through the practice-ready stream or residency training.

Asia Rehman

If you want to go far, go together

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”– African Proverb Thank you AIMGA for going on this journey with me.

Arit Archibong-Akpan

You have renewed my hope as an IMG

Deidre, I want to express my profound gratitude to you for the great job you are doing at AIMGA. Indeed, your coming has renewed my hope and desire to pursue fulfillment and satisfaction as an IMG. Your advocacy for IMGs especially in Alberta has been amazing. Even in events where we might not be present, you have held forth for us. Thank you for all that you do.

Mark Ekpekurede

Thank you for for bringing highly knowledgeable educators to help with our exam preparation

I want to pay my thanks to Deidre and whole team and especially to Dr. Bruce Fisher for conducting wonderful and very informative NAC OSCE preparation sessions. I benefited a lot from AIMGA’s QE1 study groups and I’m hoping that the NAC OSCE study groups will also be very helpful for me in my upcoming NAC exam. Once again, thank you very much for always being there for IMGs and for bringing highly knowledgeable educators such as Dr. Fisher for our learning.

I was impressed by their support

I am very thankful to the AIMGA staff for their services, guidance, and support for my application for residency training. I was impressed by the extent of support AIMGA provides to its members from study groups, workshops, and mock exams to the point of entry into the residency programs.

Words are not enough to say thank you. The time and guidance offered from the office staff from arrangements to workshops and lectures to one to one sessions with correction, review and preparation in all the steps to licensure are invaluable. Great thanks for Monica, Mahenaz, and Kim.

Safa Elhassan

Thanks for being helpful with my CaRMS application

Being a member of AIMGA had always been very helpful for me. Like many others, this is my first time applying to CARMS. Before CET, I wasn’t aware of the details of supporting documents required for CARMS application. I would like to thank AIMGA specially Mahenaz who did a wonderful job delivering CETs to IMGs and being helpful regarding my CaRMS application and reviewing my Resume and Personal Statements.

Huma Shakir

The NAC mock exam had an immense, invaluable contribution to my success

I want to express my appreciation for the unwavering and unlimited support I enjoyed in preparation for MCCQE1 and NAC OSCE exams. AIMGA preparatory classes and importantly NAC mock exam had an immense, invaluable contribution to the success I achieved in the exams. Dr. Nuruddin, I appreciate your courteous, polite, insightful, focused and mindful coordination of the online zoom meetings. The online Zoom meetings made participation feasible for many and we pray it continues. Appreciation to all AIMGA members of staff for their selfless contribution in helping IMGs achieve their dream.

Segun Oladele

The study groups at AIMGA were very instrumental to my success

I came across AIMGA via a friend, and I have to say, joining AIMGA has been one of the best decisions I ever made. The study groups at AIMGA were very instrumental to my success in passing the MCCQE1 and NAC OSCE. AIMGA helped me focus on reading and kept me motivated. Apart from getting to pass my exams, I was able to connect with people on the same journey as me and I made good friends in the process. I am indeed very thankful to the work and dedication AIMGA staff put into the success of all it’s members.

Oluwabukola Olaniyan

AIMGA gave me the tools to succeed

I am a Canadian who studied abroad. Upon returning to Canada, I experienced nothing but hurdles and was at the point of giving up. It was the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta who gave me AIMGA’s contact information. My first telephone encounter, and every subsequent interaction with AIMGA has been nothing but positive. AIMGA has given me the resources and tools that I need to succeed. I could not have gotten to where I am, and where I will be in the future, had it not been for AIMGA. Thank you for all that you do!!

Al Taylor

Thank you so much!

AIMGA provides a huge educational platform at nominal rates for all IMGs and for which I wish to express my gratitude from the bottom of my heart to all the team members who make it possible. Thank you so much! “Never stop doing little things for others, sometimes those little things occupy the biggest part of their HEARTS.” Please keep the good work going.

Sunil Bhat

Thank you for your highly professional services

Thank you Mahenaz! I want to express my sincere and heartfelt appreciation and gratitude for your highly professional and competent services, provided in both a friendly and accessible manner.

Sara Hafeez

My success was not possible without the support of AIMGA

I just want to take this opportunity to convey my gratitude and thanks to you and the whole team of AIMGA as today I got my QE1 results and passed. I must say that this success was not possible without the support of AIMGA. The QE1 study group is amazing and helped me a lot to accomplish this first step of my long journey. Once again Deidre, thanks to you and your whole team for their great efforts and continuous support for all IMGs.

Faiza Saeed

I am sure I am in the right place

I want to thank your team at AIMGA for your guidance and giving all of us, as members, the opportunities to pursue our dreams in many different ways. As I told Deidre in the New Member Orientation session, thanks to all the staff for the support I have felt at AIMGA, “The sun has come out again for me”. I am sure I am in the right place, with a marvelous team that is engaged to help each and every one of us at every step. Thank you all ever so much.

Christine Weber

Thanks for assistance during my residency pathway

I am extremely thankful and express my sincere gratitude to the AIMGA team for the incredible assistance offered during my residency pathway.

Shahistha Sayeda

The CTP program was invaluable at helping me carve out a career path for myself

The CTP program was invaluable at helping me carve out a career path for myself. Firstly it made me feel less alone in this journey. The various mentors and the paths they had taken offered great insight and hope and gave the confidence I needed to make a transition in my career. I shared my interests and the program advisors were very helpful in connecting me to people in the industry. This gave me real insights into the industry, it’s requirements and my place in it. I feel without all the support at AIMGA I would have still been unsure and possibly still trying to get into residency with the odds stacked against me. As opposed to this, now I am part of a Masters program and have the path set towards a career of my interest. I am grateful for all the support the CTP and AIMGA provide.

Hafsa Yasin

AIMGA is like my second home

I always considered AIMGA as my second home. It is true that I have persistently found encouragement, hope and professional support from this extraordinary organization, since the last four years of my struggle. All AIMGA’s programs are designed to facilitate IMGS to achieve not only their professional goals but also to achieve their integrity in Canada. Words are short to say thank you AIMGA, we love you.

Saadia Batool

I feel a true sense of belonging

I call it “My AIMGA” as I feel a true sense of belonging there. AIMGA is truly a one stop shop for all I need to pursue my medical license in Canada. At each step, I make sure I navigate their resources and check what’s available at AIMGA as they truly present only the best – the best and most qualified staff, facilitators, and the best materials and preparatory classes. For courses that are not funded, they are affordable, All that they do is in a very friendly and welcoming environment that promotes development and prosperity. I owe them a lot in terms of what I have been able to achieve so far.

Tuga Yousif

My study group helped me ace my QE2 exams

I would like to express my utmost appreciation to AIMGA for being a pacesetter as a support system for IMGs in Canada. The input from the MCCQE2 study group I partook in from January to April of 2018, helped me ace my QE2 Examinations with flying colours and I am now a proud recipient of the LMCC.

Dr. Oluseyi Akinola

I credit AIMGA for meeting my deadline

The best part of AIMGA is, without a doubt, the support for CaRMS – I credit AIMGA for my meeting the application deadlines this year. As a result of Deidre’s invaluable coaching, I have been able to update my CaRMS application form and develop my personal letters.

Maryam A. Poor

The CTP program helped me develop important skills during my career transition

The CTP program helped me develop important skills like networking during my career transition. I got exposure to a wide variety of options and what I needed to achieve those targets. I have also made some lasting friendships with some members in my cohort.

Luma Al-Dulaimi

AIMGA’s study group really helped me

I have passed QE1 and I want to show my gratitude toward AIMGA. AIMGA’s study group really helped me by providing the materials needed to prepare myself and the group discussions helped me to clarify the various topics particularly the portion on ethics. I am really thankful to AIMGA and I hope they continue providing this support for future IMGs.

Tasmira Mohib

AIMGA has provided the courage to achieve my goals

AIMGA has been, for me, a light amid darkness and gloom. Certainty in areas of uncertainty and courage to achieve my goals in times of despair. Giving the right kind of information and encouragement in the face of vast information that are almost drowning. Thanks to the team at AIMGA for the great work you all do.

Mark Ekpekurede

They were instrumental in my exam preparation

Ekua Amponsah Agyemang

AIMGA has made me feel valued and respected

Ogechukwu Nwobe

AIMGA was instrumental in my path to practice

The journey to practice in Canada is long and arduous. There were days when I felt like a boat in a rough storm at sea. Despite my determination and conviction, without AIMGA’s guidance I would not make the distance to practice. AIMGA, under the leadership of Deidre, was instrumental in my success. My sincerest and heartfelt THANK YOU to all at AIMGA, I will remain forever grateful!!

Nawal Naeem
