Speech Pathology and Accent Reduction

The new ACGME milestones emphasize proper communication, which is an integral part of becoming a successful physician in America. Statistics show that those who speak and communicate confidently are hired and preferred over those candidates who do not. Residents Medical can assist with reducing a heavy accent, speech impediment, and other communication deficiencies. We have had many medical school graduates take this course to build their confidence, communication ability and overall presentation. This service offers an invaluable benefit for IMGs and FMGs who are interested in pursuing their career in the U.S. Our speech trainers are skilled and well renowned professionals, as they have been assisting candidates with speech therapy for over 25 years!

Interpersonal and communication skills is one of the six ACGME Core Competencies that are emphasized in the curriculum of all ACGME accredited residency programs in the United States.
