From the outset, our mission was clear – remove financial barriers in the residency application process and improve the review experience for programs. As a team of medical educators, we watched for years as students on their path to becoming doctors were shouldering an overwhelming financial burden -- and this was increasing every year!
Contrary to the intended purpose, progressive fee structures were not discouraging excessive overapplication. In fact, the number of residency applications across all specialties has increased every year for more than a decade. The result is a daunting financial barrier, sidelining many talented applicants who couldn’t bear the cost.

To Do It Better –
By building a platform from scratch and keeping costs low, our dedicated team of medical educators has cut application expenses by > 95%.
Recognizing the archaic and cumbersome user experience of existing platforms, we rolled out an interface that was not just modern, but also intuitive for both applicants and programs. By honing in on the essentials and trimming the excess, we successfully condensed applications to a crisp 4-5 pages. Combined with signaling, this reduced review time by as much as 80%.
