Dear Dr. Kimberly Tan,

I am excited to be starting my ST1 year in Radiology in my top choice deanery this week! I want thank you for all the support and advice that you’ve given me from way back when I was applying for my F2 standalone program through to my ST1 application. I am grateful for all that you do to help me and many other IMGs in our challenging start in the NHS. You are a star!

Hi Kim!

I must say that the masterclass is beyond my expectations and after every single video I’m more thrilled and certain that I’ve made the right decision. Thank you so much, you’ve done an amazing job!


The IMG masterclass is a fantastic course for learning in-depth ways to improve our CV. Before I started the course, I had very little knowledge about the ST1 application process and was confused about many person specifications.

Kimberly is excellent at explaining each and every person specification in detail. I can’t thank her enough for her motivation and inspiration. She really has put in a lot of effort and hard work in coming up with the videos. The FB Q&A sessions were especially helpful in clearing all our doubts.

It would not be an exaggeration if a significant credit of my ST1 application success goes to Kimberly and this amazing course.

Dear Dr Kimberly,

Hope that you are well. I took your advice and made my application to Standalone FY2 and successfully scored a 92.6/100 and ranked 17 in the in interview.


Dear Dr. Tan,

I want to take the time to thank you for this excellent opportunity. This course is just priceless, and I am so lucky to have come across it. No words can describe how thankful I am for the time and effort you have taken to help others.


Hello Dr.Kimberly,

Hope you are doing well in this crisis.
Firstly I would like to let you know that I am extremely pleased with your modules and they have definitely made my journey towards my target specialty so much easier.Thank you so much for that.


Before I started the IMG Masterclass I had been searching for information about how to successfully apply for specialty training as an IMG. No one seemed to know the specifics [...] Since enrolling into the course, I have gained clarity on the whole application process and I am able to channel my efforts properly.

Her module on portfolio building completely changed my perspective as she made a complex process seem so easy with straightforward information and great tips for success.

Kimberly doesn’t just give the information you need, she also tells you how to achieve it within the necessary time. Her videos are factual and she will always refer you to the official guidance breaking it down in a way you’ll understand.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sure! Check out some of the lessons here.

These are very short previews of what’s available in the IMG Masterclass, but if you want to get a good feel of the quality of information you’ll be getting, I highly recommend checking out our free training: First Try UK Residency Formula

The IMG Masterclass includes guidance for the following specialties at ST1 or CT1 level (CCT Pathway):

Anaesthetics, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Core Psychiatry, Core Surgery, Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Radiology, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Ophthalmology, Neurosurgery, and Paediatrics.

Any specialty not listed here is not covered in the Masterclass.

The best time to take this course is 1-2 years before applying for specialty training – ideally as a final-year medical student or intern. This is because many parts of the portfolio can be done back home in your own country if done correctly.

If you have passed this stage, it’s not too late!  In fact, it’s even more important to start now to avoid wasting anymore time.

Yes and no. 

The general principles of the application strategy, and all the guidance on how to carry out an audit, gain poster presentations, organise teaching etc, can also be used for application to ST3/ST4.

However, the recruitment process for ST3/ST4 is very different from ST1/CT1 and will not be explained in the course. 

Please review the course content and decide whether you will benefit from this course.

This masterclass focuses on optimising your application to specialty training so I’m afraid preparing for these exams and securing a non-training job are outside the scope.

However we do not leave our students high and dry! We have recommended resources as well as exclusive discounts preparation materials for these exams. We also have modules on interview preparation that will prove invaluable when job hunting.

Yes, when you are enrolled, you will always be to view the latest version of the course. The Masterclass content will be updated for 2024 applications when that information becomes available in October 2023, and you will have access to that.

Unfortunately there are no guarantees in life, but this course will help to vastly improve your application to give you the best chance possible. By doing nothing though, you are almost guaranteed to fail.

Of course, your satisfaction is our priority. If you enrolled in the 12 or 24 month plan, we can provide a full refund as long as you do not gain access beyond Module 2 of the IMG Masterclass. All refund requests must be sent by email within 30 days of enrolment. Refunds are not available on the monthly subscription plan.

My Honest Disclaimer

Hi, Dr Kimberly here. I want to make sure you understand that this course is not a magic bullet to get into UK training. I put in months of planning and effort to succeed, and have been very fortunate. Not all IMGs succeed the first time they apply to UK training, and this course will not guarantee your success. This course is an education tool but ultimately you need to put in the work. Always remember that pursuing a career in medicine and applying for specialty training involves some level of risk. Some doctors succeed, and some fail. Any testimonials are real and valid, but are not guarantees you will obtain the same results.
