After countless hours talking to graduating surgical Residents and Fellows across the country, Matthew was shocked that the soon-to-be highest earners in the healthcare industry were more like a deer in headlights then a well seasoned business professional in their 30’s. Understanding there was a major disconnect, he realized that a new way of thinking was needed to help guide these brilliant minds in an unfamiliar arena. Thus, the #SurgeonAgent and Exclusive Medical Advisors was created in November 2019.
As a former Major League Baseball sports agent, representing 1st Round Draft picks and Major League players for over a decade, he felt obliged to provide his experience and expertise as a sports agent to young surgeons entering the professional job market for the first time. He would no longer let the graduating Resident or Fellow accept the status quo by providing them the fundamental business knowledge and support to properly navigate the career search process.
Matthew found that whether the graduating Resident or Fellow was looking for a job, currently in the interview process, or reviewing job offers and negotiating contracts, guidance was needed. For the first time in healthcare history, the #SurgeonAgent is putting the power of business knowledge into the hands of our young surgeons.
