September 2018Dear Residents Medical, Wow! Where do I start? I just got offered a residency slot in September 2018 that starts this November 2018. This is amazing! I thought that after July it is near impossible to start training for this year. You mentioned that off-track spots can come up, but now I experienced it firsthand! It is not only that you secured me an interview off-track, but that you already had me set in a... Dr. Sukumar
2018I would like to write this letter of recommendation for Residents Medical and speak about my journey in reaching my goal. What a long road! Born in India, I aspired to be a doctor my whole youth. I went to South East University Medical College in China. Having graduated in 2012, I was unable to land a residency for five years. Residents Medical interviewed me and accepted me into their residency placement program. I was... Dr. Shirisha V
2018Dear Residents Medical, Thank you! Everything you said would happen, did happen. The only prerequisite you put before me was that I had to prove myself. Once I did, the door would open for me. Because of this, I'm writing this letter with great enthusiasm. I came to Residents Medical as a graduate from St. Martinus University School of Medicine in the Caribbean. Being a 2015 grad, I thought I would have landed a residency... Dr. S. Israr
2018Dear Potential Candidate, I graduated from the top Caribbean Medical School, St. George School of Medicine. It is not only an academically relevant school of medicine, but it's also not cheap. Having graduated in 2015 and unable to land a medical residency, after investing six figures on my medical education, I was in a dark place. From the onset, Residents Medical's staff had confidence and a plan. My tuition and consulting fees resulted in a... Dr. P. Sharma
2018To Whom It May Concern, I am a U.S. Graduate that had completed my PGY-1. Due to personal issues, I had no choice but to take a year off. This created obstacles in my PGY-2 hunt. Residents Medical and their attentive team created a pathway to success for me. I was able to complete a research and clinical tenure under the mentorship of the Chairman in a top Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation program in New... Dr. Michael H
2017Dear Prospective Doctor, I was a nervous wreck because I did not match. I was approaching four years out of medical school and had a couple of attempts on Step 1 and Step 2 with subsequent low scores when I did pass. Being an American that went to a Caribbean Medical School; AUA, the deck was stacked against me and I was really beginning to worry. When I came to Residents Medical, they did not... Dr. Preeth Jayaram
2017To Whom it May Concern, On one too many nights I was up stressing about: “How am I going to get into Residency?”. I mean, with all the competition, I was at wits end. I’m sure I’m one of many, but I had tried everything: the NRMP Match, been offered interviews, but with every opportunity I did not succeed. I was going nowhere fast. When I found Residents Medical I figured it wasn’t real since... Dr. M.M.
2016Dear Future Student/Candidate: I can’t begin to show my gratitude to Residents Medical for educating, preparing and rehabilitating my medical residency candidacy. In addition, I am so grateful to them for sending me to the Everest Foundation and recommending me to be an Everest Foundation Scholar. I am a Canadian that graduated from a top medical school in Bangalore, India. After graduation from medical school, I could not find a residency in Canada or America!... Dr. R. S.
2016To Whom It May Concern: Wow, where do I start? Thank you RM so very much for everything you’ve done. I came to your organization confused and beaten down from being bounced around, one unsuccessful match to the next. Your whole staff at RM was amazing. Professor Heffernan set me up as an Everest Foundation Research Scholar which helped financially, and then your team went above and beyond to help my CV and overall candidacy.... S.K.
August 2016To Whom It May Concern: I write this letter of recommendation with great adoration. Simply writing this LOR does not do my gratitude justice. I had been with Residents Medical for almost 2 years. I came here from India, joined Kaplan’s USMLE courses, but wasn’t getting anywhere. After I failed my USMLE Step 2 under Kaplan’s program, I went to Residents Medical’s office and signed up hoping they would take me into their Residency Placement... Dr. N.B.
2016Dear Potential Candidate: My journey began with Residents Medical through their partnership with United States Medical Management. I was based in India, just graduated medical school and had heard about them from one of my friends that had gone to USMM’s office in Bangalore. I did not have any USMLE exposure and was starting from a clean slate. I knew I wanted to live the “American Dream” and to practice medicine in the U.S. I... Dr. B. P.
December 2016Dear Professor Heffernan, I would like to express my immense and intense gratitude to you specifically. Your patience, as well as holistic approach in calming me and building my confidence has been a priceless gift. I came to Residents Medical with high USMLE scores (99 percentile), yet as an FMG it was difficult to obtain a residency position. “As long as I stayed steadfast”, I would have what it takes. My purpose here is to... A.M
2016Dear Residents Medical, It’s been quite a journey for the both of us. I remember when I came to you guys, we first met at your office. I told you that I wanted to take my Step 2. Your staff encouraged me, even though they were aware of my stage-4 lung cancer. I don’t know how many times you told me that you were enamored by my fighting spirit. It took 3× as long as... Dr. A. G.
2016To Whom It May Concern, My dear professors supported the idea of going to the US to pursue my dream of becoming a great pathologist. Because of their support, I followed through on my dream and became a pathology Resident in the best University in my country. After 2 years of hard work and study, as well as 11 months of great hands-on clinical experience, I achieved very high scores on the USMLE exams .... A.G.A
2015Dear Professor Heffernan, I am still in awe of this opportunity you have provided me. I, with great respect and resolute, write this letter of recommendation and appreciation of Residents Medical. As a Foreign Medical Graduate with lower scores on my USMLEs, but a passion to succeed in medicine, I was desperate for an answer. You and your team listened and delivered. Through endless hours of counseling, guidance and patience, yourself and your staff helped... S.S.
2015To whom it may concern, I am immensely appreciative of Residents Medical for their guidance and placement services. I was a graduate from one of the best Caribbean schools -- St. George’s University School of Medicine. Albeit a longstanding medical school with great faculties, it has a very minimal support system for USMLE Preparation. I realized what I needed was beyond my basic prep, since my accent was also greatly affecting my confidence. Residents Medical... Dr. L.Y.
2015Dear Prospective Candidate, I came to Residents Medical in the throes of the 2014 NRMP SOAP Match. I am an older graduate, yet I had matched into an advanced position on my own (PGY2). I later was told that I still needed a transitional year PGY1 spot. After the SOAP match concluded, I realized this was my last opportunity. When I first walked into their office, I was both excited and nervous. They were very... Dr. T.K.
2015To Whom It May Concern, I would like to recommend Residents Medical’s Preparatory Services and in particular their Interview Preparation course. I was a University of Mississippi School of Medicine student and was applying to residency in the competitive field of Otolaryngology. I needed to brush up on my communication skills most importantly. Residents Medical connected me with a Program Director from a top School of Medicine, to help me with the interview process. We...
