To that end, Dr. Everest also serves as board chair and chief academic officer of the Residents Medical Group, the designated sister organization of The Everest Foundation.

He was also active as a systems improvement team at the David Bruce Military Hospital in Malta and has accrued an honorary medical doctorate from Dell Medical School, the graduate medical school of The University of Texas at Austin.
Dr. Everest attributes his success to his care, compassion, and empathy for others.
