The AmeriClerkships Medical Society was founded on the principle of helping international medical school graduates secure a US medical residency. Inspired by the experiences of Dr. Pedram Mizani, AmeriClerkships’ president, the company has helped over 700 students receive placement in residency programs based in over 150 U.S. cities, including Atlanta, New York City, and Baltimore.
Question: What are some of the obstacles international medical school students face as they apply for a U.S. medical residency?
Answer: Along with the expected challenges that national students face when applying for a residency, international students can expect a “dual learning curve” as they begin life as both hopeful residents and immigrants. Students often face language, cultural, technological, and financial barriers, among others.
Q: What are some ways that AmeriClerkships helps international medical school graduates overcome the obstacles they face in the U.S. residency application process?
A: AmeriClerkships provides assistance for international medical students throughout the entire residency application process. First, the company provides a free entry assessment for inquiring medical students. Once students choose to use AmeriClerkships’ services, the company offers insured U.S. clinical experiences that expose students to the culture of US health care, residency document reviews and revisions, mock one-on-one match interviews, and extra support for other “match” programs, such as SOAP (Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program), that give medical students more opportunities to secure a residency. AmeriClerkships offers a secure payment plan and a lowest price guarantee in an effort to keep this an available resource for all students. It also offers office hours with the AmeriClerkships president, who offers years of personal experience, wisdom, and encouragement to students.
Q: What types of insured clinical placement services does AmeriClerkships offer?
A: AmeriClerkships offers clinical placement to medical professionals in one of the following five categories: medical student clerkships, medical graduate clinical experiences, medical graduate funded teaching hospital job placements and visa sponsorships, pre-health student clinical experiences, and medical assistant clinical externships.
