About Christiana Davis, MD

As an International Medical Graduate (IMG) Consultant, I offer career advice that only an IMG can give. I know of your stories and your struggles. When I immigrated into the United States, I did not know where to start. I knew of no blogs, no career consultants, and no mentors. Looking back, there were roadblocks, but I did not give up. Today, the web and social networks have made our world much smaller. You can learn everything there is to know about succeeding in the United States without leaving your house. Some of the services I offer include:

  • Help defining your career vision
  • Expert advice on alternative career paths
  • Help with standardized testing
  • Advice on making the best of your residency and fellowship training
  • Help with writing career documents, including personal statements, CVs, and resumes
