HOUSTON, TX – March 23, 2023 – DLA Editors & Proofers, a leading provider of editing and consultation services for medical residency applicants in the United States, offers key support services for residents seeking to transfer to a different program or specialty or to fill an off-cycle residency vacancy. Since 2008, residents across a variety of circumstances using DLA Editors & Proofers’ editing and consultation services to achieve these goals have enjoyed an unsurpassed rate of success.

Led by David Lombardino, an expert in the field of medical residency, DLA Editors & Proofers tailors their proprietary approach to the unique goals and situation of each client. This approach enables clients across a wide range of personal and professional circumstances to successfully receive their programs’ full support in pursuing resident swap opportunities and off-cycle residency vacancies.

Clients of DLA Editors & Proofers use services like ResidentSwap.org, AAMC’s FindAResident and FREIDA, as well as specialty-specific sites, such as ACOG’s CREOG Clearinghouse, to identify available transfer opportunities and vacancies. Then they turn to DLA Editors & Proofers to ensure success across all documents required in the process.

Lombardino, founder and editor in chief of DLA Editors & Proofers, honed his experience through helping a close friend swap residencies to be closer to her family and a family acquaintance leave a toxic work environment to fill an open residency vacancy. Clients since then have spanned similar circumstances in addition to situations of facing dismissal, or being dismissed, for alleged or confirmed personal or professionalism issues. They include clients who have had to resign their positions for health or family issues or for other reasons compelled by their program directors or graduate medical education offices. They also include residents wishing to reenter the match to change specialties.

“Changing from one program to another mid-year is always challenging,” said Lombardino, “and an even greater challenge is reentering residency after having left a program, no matter the reason. And each client is different. We start by listening to their story and taking a supportive approach to understanding what they’ve experienced and what their goals are. Once we have listened, we determine the best path to take.”

DLA Editors & Proofers have developed a comprehensive suite of services to address each aspect of transferring programs or specialties or filling a program’s vacancy. These services include editing and feedback for cover letters, whether for a client’s current program director or their institution’s GME office or for the program director at the prospective residency. They also include editing and feedback for letters of intent or interest, personal statements and curricula vitae (CVs), and consultation services including interview coaching.

“Our aim in developing these services,” Lombardino continued, “was to ensure we had our clients covered, no matter where or how they need our support. Clients can choose just one or two services or all of them. We are here to help in whatever way we can.”

For current or former medical residents considering or pursuing litigation against their current or former programs, DLA Editors & Proofers can help. Lombardino has served as a medical residency expert consulting in cases involving sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, physical and emotional abuse by a program director, and allegations of workplace conduct, including substance use and actions putting patient safety at risk. His experience and expertise can be a valuable asset in building a case as well as in helping advise clients in the concrete steps they can take to best position themselves to achieve a successful outcome.


As an unsurpassed leader in editing and consultation services supporting students, professionals and writers across a broad array of fields and endeavors, DLA Editors & Proofers excels, and their clients do, too. DLA’s bespoke solutions span the full range of their clients’ goals, from seeking acceptance to postgraduate programs and completion of postgraduate training and degrees to pursuing publication and the growth of their businesses and organizations.
