The Silicon Review
Typically for a student, graduate school and post-graduate training can cost them a fortune. In some cases, for highly driven students, securing a fellowship can help them pay for advanced education programs. Medical fellowships are reserved for physicians who have already completed medical school and completed a residency in their specialty. Why is it important to get a fellowship? Experts say that obtaining a fellowship is not only a method to gain financial benefits but also gives the students a professional reputation as scholars. Students who have fellowship in their resume stand out from the rest in the academic job market. Fellowship training is an integral part of becoming a specialist physician. While in a fellowship, a physician will continuously shadow a specialist to learn a specific subspecialty. Globally, there are various firms that provide excellent fellowship training, but the Residents Medical Group stands out from the rest.
Residents Medical is a one-of-a-kind organization, along with its sister organization (Residents Medical Consultancy) are embedded in the field of Graduate Medical Education and improvements of the American and global healthcare systems. Residents Medical helps medical school students and graduates prepare for and achieve post-graduate training in medical residency and specialized Fellowship training. There is a severe doctor shortage, and Residents Medical is helping alleviate that shortage by helping graduates who have been unable to achieve residency or fellowship to achieve it through preparatory education and placement. Residents Medical is unique in that it takes its candidates to the finish line and achieves medical residency or fellowship, not just giving courses and leaving them on their own. Residents Medical Consultancy assists community-based hospitals in starting medical residency programs and assisting governments to improve their health care systems and outcomes.
In conversation with Dr. Michael Everest, Founder, Chairman & Chief Academic Officer of Residents Medical Group
Q. How do potential applicants approach you? And what are the various technologies leveraged by you in your lead generation efforts?
We are approached organically through word of mouth, and we have leveraged the Metaverse as well as a robust online marketing plan. We reach out on social media and have a strong presence there. I started social media marketing before many of my competitors.
Q. Documentation processes are complex in the U.S. Medical Residency and Fellowship placement for people to understand. How do you make the processes more feasible and transparent?
By having some of the best trained Specialist Counselors whom themselves are MD’s. We have a bespoke approach and hold each one of our students and client’s hand throughout the whole process. We have partnerships with documentation evaluation organizations and have an infrastructure of Professors and immigration lawyers when needed for international students. ON the RMC (Residents Medical Consultancy) side we mentor and guide the leadership at the hospital in order for them to prepare the staff from the C-Suite to the doctors to convert to a teaching hospital. It is a very personalized approach.
Q. Specialized offerings come with an expensive price tag. How do you maintain your affordability and profitability?
We try to scale things as much as possible, but quite frankly we are the best. We are the Bentley of preparation, education and placement in Graduate Medical Education. The way to grow in the future is to provide a loan assistance program that I am in the process of creating, through private equity. This is not like buying milk; this is an investment in one’s career that pays 100-fold.
Q. If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
To look at the market and see a need that needs to be filled. Also educate yourself and be passionate about what you are doing. If you can make money doing something good for humanity that is an added bonus and should be a motivating factor on the days that are challenging.
Q. What makes your Medical Residency and Fellowship Placement services standout?
There is no other organization in America that educates, prepares and completes the journey and places its medical residency and fellowship candidates. Meaning that we don’t stop at giving courses and the student/candidate being stuck in the same scenario unable to advance their post -graduation aspirations for medical residency. RM gets them past the obstacles to the finish line.

We are constantly innovating and improving, by doing such we are leaders and are growing stronger quarter after quarter.

Q. How does Residency Calculator help candidates to find their dream residency?
Residency Calculator is a tool that I created, in partnership with UCLA School of Statistics and a Ph.D. in statistics. The calculator was created to cut through the noise and give people a free tool on our website to objectively see what their percentage is in obtaining a medical residency in America. We have an objective tool, compiled from five years of data. The residency calculator helps evaluate what are the percentages of a residency applicant in any specialty, from Anesthesiology to Urology achieve their residency. We also give a solution by offering education and prepatory courses.
