Hello Somerset: I am very happy to inform you that I secured a residency spot in Psychiatry. Thank you for your help in the form of a rotation, a letter of recommendation, and guidance. I truly believe your LOR made a significant difference........

Good news!! I matched with the University of Tennessee, my externship at your clinic and your letter of recommendation was a key factor in obtaining interviews!! Dr. Jaddou, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!! 


Dear Dr. Jaddou, this application cycle was a million times better than the last. Thanks in large part to you for giving me the opportunity to extern with you. I ended up with over 20 interview invitations, and just about everyone, my interviewers was impressed with my externship with you. 

Become part of our winning team

Dear Dr. Jaddou, I wanted to let you know that I have matched! I really appreciate the opportunity in the Summer of 2017. Many of my interviewers during my match season praised the excellent LOR and were impressed by the volunteer and scholastic activities your program offered.

Hello Dr. JaddouIt was this time last year when I contacted you about the externship after I didn't match. This year, I matched at SUNY Upstate Medical University for Pediatrics. I couldn't have done it without your help and guidance. I truly believe the reason I received interviews was how I spent my time at Somerset. I was able to publish an article and volunteer at the church clinic, showing my dedication to the community.

MATCH UPDATE, I DID NOT MATCH!

Dear Dr. Jaddou, I have successfully cleared my USMLE STEP 1, 2, and 3 exams. However, I was unable to match this year likely due to a lack of clinical experience, therefore I would like to do an externship at your office, I live in Texas.

I am a graduate of St. Georges. I had remained unmatched. My mentors, forums, and family and friends have suggested finding some sort of clinical externship in Family Medicine. I came across your website searching on the web and also from the reviews on the USMLE forums.
