    Has anyone heard about this resident medical group that helps residents get into spots? Is this a scam or a real group? and does anyone know who has used this before?

    This forum is for the posting of open positions and for those searching for positions.

    There's findaresident and the open spots that get posted to SDN. Otherwise, anyone offering to find you a job is a scammer.

    Yea I know those sites, but apparently this group helps you find a position and they know PD and open spots. I'm not sure how they know which spots are open. They seem to have some sort of agreement with certain hospitals. Also they ask about 150K. I wasn't sure if anyone has used this and has been successful ?

    Tell you what, if you pay me 150,000 dollars, I will hire you as a resident in my non-accredited program, Deuist's Really Awesome Residency That's Better Than Emergency Medicine, Surgery, and Pediatrics Combined. Salary is $40,000 a year.

    Clearly anybody with a fancy website is totally legitimate. I mean, that goes without saying.

    I correspond with Residents Medical and they are affiliated with ACGME Accredited Hospitals. If they were not, it would be false advertisement to say so. For those of you who have questions or concerns about the above accusation of bribery you will find that the said person along with said organization is not Residents Medical nor is it Arnold Michael Everest. I'm here to answer any questions you may have. It is our sole prerogative to help IMG's, FMG's and U.S medical students and graduates.

    To the extent they provide interview prep and help with CVs and arrange externships, etc, that seems legit, but hardly worth big money. If they are promising slots to ACGME residencies, which they never outright say on their website, it's a scam and you shouldn't fall for it.
