As the founder of the The OMNI Medical Student Training Program, Theresa Siaw has worked diligently to ensure that these students have housing and all the help they need when they come to the U.S. Currently they are working with Weiss Hospital and looking to set up other partnerships with other medical facilities in Chicago.
The OMNI Medical Student Training Program helps students who have trained at foreign medical schools to prepare for their first job in the United States.
Their main mission is to help integrate students from Caribbean countries to different hospitals in Chicago for their residency training. They work with three medical schools in the Caribbean and help up to 100 students each year. The OMNI Medical Student Training Program is an extension of OMNI Healthcare in Chicago with Theresa Siaw as the CEO/Founder of the program.
