How did it all start?
Dr Sebas started The IMG Event during the summer of 2021 with the intent to bring support and sense of family to the international community. To make every IMG feel connected and know that no one is alone in this journey. The purpose of The Event is to network, support each other, and meet colleagues & study partners all along the same journey. We want to provide different opportunities and guide students on how to pursue their pathway to residency.
Our very first Event was in 2021, where over 400 IMGs gathered to meet in Central Park. Since then, The Event has continued to develop and grow, to over 1000 IMGs coming together to the New York Event.
Now, we have held Events in Chicago and even internationally, in New Delhi, India, followed by Karachi, Pakistan and soon, to many cities across USA and all over the world!
