Letter of Recommendation - 2015

2015

To 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 was able to tutor me by assigning a speech pathologist to improve all my weak areas of diction.

To help my finances, I was offered a distinct opportunity to be an Everest Foundation Scholar, based off my situation–having worked 2 jobs as an MD to afford school. With help from the foundation, I went on to one of the top research institutes for Spinal Cord Injury Research on Veterans. I worked hard, created three devices, perform cutting-edge research, and was given these educational tools to grow in my field! My P.I. and Program Director went to bat for me, everyday I was working with Paraplegic and Quadriplegic
Veterans and helping them walk with the help of the “Iron Man” device, which was an amazing opportunity to be able to make a difference for injured
Veterans.

I am now proud to say that this past December I pre-matched into the Program and am now a Resident continuing my research.

Sincerely,

Dr. L.Y.
