As we look forward to the opening of the 2017-2018 National Residency Match Program season, we are distinctly aware of the challenges facing international medical school graduates. The threat of an immigration ban certainly concerns us. The discussion on limiting VISAS for foreign medical graduates also worries us.
It is something we’re staying up to date with. A recent article published in The Wall Street Journal highlights the critical role IMGs (both international and American) play in providing critical healthcare services. The entire RIQ team has written to our state representatives emphasizing just how important IMGs are to the American healthcare system.
With that being said, David and I are always striving to improve RIQ’s services. We trained with dozens of IMGs that remain our close friends and continue to inspire us. As we grow, we want to continue to offer the absolute best services we can.
Central to our mission is to build trust. I have written about the lack of regulation surrounding clinical observerships, published in Academic Medicine. We know how hard it is for IMGs to find services they can trust. Is RIQ the real deal? Is it worth the cost? We understand that this is something many of you have on your mind when considering our services.
With that being said, I wanted to take an opportunity to talk about trust. We know as an IMG it’s hard to find services that you can really trust. We want you to feel confident that if you invest in our services, you will be 100% satisfied.
Never mind the testimonials of dozens and dozens of successful candidates who matched with us – even if many of those applicants tried and failed twice before. Forget the fact that David and I along with our amazing coaches all proudly display our real names, and credentials. We are not hiding behind a paywall.
I think the best way to build trust is to show what our product offers. This is why we’re releasing some of our most watched videos as a Free option.
