For International Medical Graduates

He's married to an IMG and has had prior roommates who are now residents/doctors in the U.S. This has given him an inside view into the world of medicine. An author and editor, Stefan Johnsson has recently published his first book and completed a certificate in technical and professional writing to help him excel in the field of writing. He is consistently looking to provide excellent service to all foreign applicants who are applying to a residency or fellowship program in the U.S., and also around the world.

Personal Statement Review and Editing

COST $75

The personal statement editing comes with a complete revamp of your document. Most programs that you apply for would not want your personal statement to exceed one full page. It needs to be concise and professionally written. This editing and review service will help you get the correct length, sentence structure while also pushing your passion forward to help you show the strengths and commitment for the field that you plan on applying for.

Note: As this is a professional editing and writing service, we do not write these from scratch. Please have a written statement ready to submit for editing and review.

Edits for Additional Specialties

COST $20

Are you applying for multiple specialties and need to have your personal statement adjusted for each field? We can do this too. Each additional specialty with edits will cost only $15. You may do as many different versions of your personal statement as you wish.

Note: This cost is only related to revising your original personal statement which already received PEFFA USA edits. If you wish to submit an entirely new personal statement for editing, the cost will be $75.

ERAS Pre-Submission Review

COST $70

Do you need help to go through your application submission before you move forward with the match? This review service will provide you all the required changes to make sure your application is professional and without any poor grammar or sentence structure issues. Without a proper application, you may not even get the chance for the program to look further at your application. This service is highly suggested for new applicants to the match.

How do you submit the ERAS application for review?

Once you've filled it out, please print it as a PDF file and send it to PEFFA USA. We will make edits through comments on the PDF file.

Combination Plan:

Personal Statement and ERAS Application Pre-Submission Review

COST $130

If you need to have both your personal statement and ERAS application reviewed together, you can do so with a discounted offer. For the above price, you can submit both documents for editing and review. It pays to combine and even if you decide to submit one now and the other at a different time, you can still take advantage of this price. Please email Stefan Johnsson directly if you wish to take this offer at a later time and date.

Note: This discount does not apply to any of the additional edits for personal statement specialties. These will still be $20 per additional specialty that you plan to apply for in the match.

Curriculum Vitae (CV) Review and Editing

COST $115

This option is different than your ERAS application review. If you plan to update your CV to apply for clinical experience or research in the U.S., reviewing and editing your CV will make your professional document seem a step above the rest. Grammar structure and editing are vital, and so is the overall look of your CV. This service will make sure you are confident in the professional look and feel of your CV, without worrying about any grammar or sentence structure mistakes. 

Letter of Recommendation Review

COST $30

Sometimes you may be required to write the letter of recommendation that will be signed by whomever is providing this to you. We can edit and review these documents. It is helpful to have each letter of recommendation match the same professional level of English that all your other documents will have. We only edit these and will not write them from scratch.
