Graduate career prospects are at the heart of US education, with teaching increasingly informed by what is going on in the rapidly-changing world around us. With digital technologies transforming the education landscape, getting advanced degrees - whether online or offline - has become more prevalent and in some cases, necessary, due to the tightened and competitive job market. The varied range of options in learning format, specialisations and majors and institutions, can in fact be mind-boggling.
Terms like “Analytics” and “Data Science” have become buzz-words these days. Everyone wants to know about the next big trend in data, as well as how they can get involved – and who can blame them? Earlier this year Glassdoor published an article highlighting the 50 Best Jobs in America, according to the job openings that it sees. Data Science was on the top of the list. Also on that list were titles including Analytics Manager, Data Analyst, Data Engineer, and Business Analyst. So, clearly jobs dealing with data are in high-demand.
It's that time of the year again. A lot of foreign medical graduates, who aspire to settle in the United States, learn that they haven't been matched to their applied residency programs. If you are one of them, you may be disheartened, frustrated or lost about what to do next. It has taken a lot for you to get till here, and now you didn't get into a residency program - what do you do?
And so, we write this post to give you a fresh perspective and hopefully, a renewed motivation. We believe you can use this as a stepping stone to something better, something more lucrative and perhaps even more satisfying.
Here are three reasons why we believe you should rejoice that you aren't in any residency program right now:
The exponential growth of volume and variety of data generated today present unprecedented challenges as well as opportunities for organisations. Companies are now relying on technologies like text analysis and Natural Language Processing and text analysis for making sense of such massively collected data.
If you are a doctor born and educated outside the US, and have tried to practice medicine in the US, you know that it is a long and tedious journey. All states have various requirements that need to be satisfied in order to practice medicine, such as studying for and successfully completing the so-called “STEP” exams, as there are three steps to completion. Additionally, there is a certification by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates that must be completed. Finally, proficiency in English and participating in a medical residency, which can take years, and a great deal of money, completes the requirements. Not to mention the emotional, financial and social toll these processes can take on you if you cannot clear any step or fail to find a good residency program.
We are pleased to announce that Pankaj Sharma, a core member of our data science faculty, has been appointed to the editorial boards of two of the most prestigious academic journals/platforms in the domain of data science, The International Journal of Data Science, and CODATA (Committee on Data of the International Council for Science (ICSU), Data Science Journal Scope.

Meritize Financial looks beyond traditional credit scores and instead considers academic data to provide students who might not otherwise qualify for a loan, with the ability to apply for and secure a student loan.
Credit approvals for loans chiefly rely on credit scores and, for students, the availability of a co-signer. Often, students just have not had the time to establish a credit history, making loan acquisition sometimes difficult. Meritize believes good students make good borrowers and loan recipients and provides them with ways to secure loans for their education. Even if your academic record isn’t perfect, Meritize will work with you to customize a loan that meets your specific needs.
A Meritize loan has some great benefits:
Uses Academic Data for Better Loan Options
Offers Expedited Approval Process
Can be Repaid Over 5 Years
Has No Prepayment Penalty
Can Cover Full Cost of Tuition
Provides Full In-School Deferment Option
Offers a 90-day Grace Period
