Insured U.S. Hands-On Clinical Experience and Complete Medical Residency Entry and Re-Entry Assistance

2011 InfORMAtIOn BROCHURE

Hello and Welcome to AmeriClerkships Medical Society,

Thank you for your interest and your ongoing commitment to patient care. It is no secret that physician shortage is already impacting the United States and will continue to do so. Perhaps not as publicized, this shortage is compounded by more than 1,300 residents who are dismissed or who withdraw from primary care fields annually, according to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. As an International Medical Graduate (IMG), International Medical Student or healthcare professional, you are already an integral part of the solution to this current emergency. We are AmeriClerkships Medical Society: the United States' leading pre-medical residency insured hands-on clinical experience, complete residency acculturation and entry assistance organization. A relationship with us is unique; first, our Society's active members reclaim their sense of purpose and serve the noble cause towards competent patient care almost immediately. Second, we are thoroughly devoted to and remarkably proficient at preparing our members for entry into, and retention within U.S. residency programs. It is our mission to identify and prepare top residency applicants, who will become stronger medical residents to improve healthcare in the United States. Our members originate from 56 countries; therefore, each member completes an individual orientation and acculturation session upon joining, and is supervised and evaluated throughout by renowned teaching attending physicians and clinical sites across the United States. Not only do our members receive personalized service, advice and support, they can interact with residency program affiliates via informative Virtual Residency Clinics, find unfilled residency positions that match their qualifications through ResidentRecruiters.com, and earn up to 12.5 units credit towards Advanced Colleges of America's Certifiable Advanced Medical Assisting Medical Residency Track Program. Therefore, AmeriClerkships Medical Society has established itself as the premier organization to enlist when it comes time to pursue medical residency. In fact, we have created the world's first Residency Applicant Competitive Index Assessment tool: please visit Butterfly® at butterfly.americlerkships.org to see for yourself! A partnership with AmeriClerkships Medical Society is one of the best decisions you can make. We look forward to serving you and celebrating your future success. Sincerely,

SOLUTIONS FOR RESIDENCY APPLICANTS

According to the National Resident Matching Program, a byproduct of the most successful Match year (95.5% in the 2010 Match) is fewer positions available in the post-Match "Scramble." Additionally, IMGs will compete with even a greater number of both Allopathic and Osteopathic medical graduates, continuing a trend that began several years ago. To strengthen their Residency Applicant Competitive Index, members of AmeriClerkships Medical Society can enjoy the following five benefits: 1. Complete practical hands-on clinical experience with U.S. licensed physicians, receive Clinical Performance Evaluations based on the eight medical core competencies recognized by U.S. residency programs, and request performance-based U.S. Letters of Recommendation. 2. Prepare for medical residency by learning the U.S. healthcare system firsthand: covered by extensive medical liability insurance, members will learn documenting methods such as charting, SOAP notes, admitting and discharge orders, electronic medical data systems, and hand-written systems; conduct oral case presentations and non-invasive physical exams; communicate with patients and families, colleagues and medical staff. Senior Acculturation Advisors will conduct mandatory orientations that focus on communication, assimilation, bedside manner, as well as patient and physician interaction. 3. Experience teaching and community hospitals, nursing homes and 100% inpatient Hospitalist clinicals while learning hospital protocols via rounds, conferences, and seminars. These premium services require special enrollment and approvals. 4. Obtain individualized support from former U.S. medical residency admission committee members: since many IMGs are unfamiliar with the residency Match cycle, residency applicants learn the application process and criteria used for evaluation of residency applicants, significantly improving their interviewing skills, performance and outcome. 5. Capture the interest of admission committee members with an articulated residency application package: apply with a Common Application Form (CAF) that communicates residency relevant information, a carefully revised personal statement (PS) that can be tailored to different specialties, and an aesthetically appealing and persuasive Curriculum Vitae (CV) that distinguishes a member from tens of thousands of residency applicants.

SOLUTIONS FOR RESIDENCY AND FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMS

The cost of a discharged resident after only six months of residency is estimated to be $102,000, and even greater when considering endangered patient lives, legal fees, malpractice suits, or residents who are dismissed in later years. AmeriClerkships Medical Society and ResidentRecruiters.com have come together to identify, pre-screen, prepare, acculturate and formally introduce only the most competitive residency candidates to residency program. Best of all these services are offered to qualified medical residency programs for free! Residency program members of AmeriClerkships Medical Society can enjoy the following five benefits: 1. Improve patient safety, care and satisfaction by using a better, more efficient selection process from a stronger and more reliable applicant pool of pre-qualified residency candidates who are sincerely interested in their preferred specialty. 2. Interview pre-screened residency and fellowship candidates differentiated using the Residency Applicant Competitive Index Assessment Tool. Identify and invite the most competitive and extensively pre-qualified candidates via ResidentRecruiters.com. 3. Minimize liability and cost associated with bad-resident-hires by saving up to $102,000 per potentially discharged resident. 4. Hire competent residents and fellows who will consider future practice in rural and underserved areas knowing AmeriClerkships Medical Society Alumni are passionate about providing care where it's needed most. 5. AmeriClerkships Medical Society Alumni are highly competitive and eligible for pre-Match contracts, meaning you may recruit and secure your next "strong resident" identified by ResidentRecruiters.com, before other competing residency programs, whenever you have an unfilled position.

Research Supporting Our Mission

Attention to cultural diversity is important because it affects medical communication patterns.

Leon L.R. Jr, Ojeda H., Mills J.I. Sr, Leon C.R., Psalms S.B., Villar H.V. "The Journey of a Foreign-Trained Physician to a United States Residency: Controversies Surrounding the Impact of This Migration to the United States." Journal of the American College of Surgeons. 2008 Jan; 206 (1): 171-6. Epub 2007 Sep 20.

Although at AmeriClerkships we believe the need for acculturation applies to all physicians due to the cultural diversity in the United States, International Medical Graduates (IMGs) face disproportionately greater cultural challenges when providing care to U.S. patients: understanding colloquial speech, patient dialects, body language and speech inflections.

Fiscella K., Frankel R. "Overcoming cultural barriers: international medical graduates in the United States." Journal of the American Medical Association. 2000 Apr 5; 283 (13):1 751.

It is no wonder that the acclimatization of IMGs is identified as the biggest obstacle to overcome when beginning residency in the United States.

Ficalora, R. D. "The Top Five Ways to Help IMGs Succeed: Spanning the Cultural Divide." A Toolkit for Today's Chief Medical Resident. 2006; 14(1): 51.

1,337 residents in 2007-2008 academic years, and 1,344 in 2008-2009 were either dismissed or withdrew from residency (ACGME); the greater majority of this attrition were in specialties that are most populated by IMGs (AMA FREIDA).

ACGME Data Resource Book. Academic Year 2008-2009. Department of Applications and Data Analysis: Accreditation Council Graduate Medical Education. 92. http://www.acgme.org/acWebsite/dataBook/2008-2009_ACGME_Data_Resource_Book.pdf.

Accessed on September 17, 2010.

Residency Directors (RDs) have begun to look for evidence of assimilation and exposure to the U.S. healthcare system when evaluating IMGs. One of the most effective means to measure assimilation has been through the length of an IMG's exposure to U.S. healthcare and culture before the start of residency. In two landmark studies, RDs divulged that recent pre-residency clinical experience & performance on standardized examinations (Part; Gayed), along with performance during the actual residency interview (Part), are the most important predictors of IMGs performance during residency. Consequently, RDs look for pre-residency clinical experience, supported by Letters of Recommendation from practicing U.S. Physicians; 73% percent of the directors found Letters of Recommendation from a foreign country to be useless (Part). Furthermore residency programs ranked U.S. clinical performance (grades and failures, if any) slightly higher than USMLE® performance (scores and attempts; AAMC, 2007). Today's IMGs have to compete with a greater number of well assimilated applicants who are applying to the same primary care residency programs by showing that they can fully and immediately integrate into U.S. medical internship.

A MISSIOn WItH EVIDEnCE BASED RESEARCH

Begin With the End in Mind

Synopsis: Residency programs are requiring IMGs to document U.S. hands-on clinical experience in greater numbers every year. The majority of programs do not consider research, abstracts, presentations, publications or observerships as hands-on clinical experience. Consider that an average of 2.5 Abstracts, Presentations and Publications were reported by those who matched, and similarly, 2.7 by those who did not match, according to the National Resident Matching Program's 2009 Charting Outcomes: therefore, there is not any real statistical benefit to adding research to a medical residency application. AmeriClerkships Medical Society offers objectively evaluated, insured, hands-on clinical experiences in five different formats: Teaching Hospital Guarantee Verified, Teaching Hospital Guarantee, Hospital Guarantee, Nursing Home Guarantee, Premium Elective Specialty, Premium Elective Specialty with 100% Inpatient Hospitalist Experience, and Teaching Attending Physician.

Sample Medical Residency Prerequisites for IMG Applicants

1. University of Buffalo, family Medicine Residency requires that IMG applicants have six months of U.S. clinical experience inpatient OR outpatient, in the past 2 years. 2. University of Minnesota, Mankato, Methodist, north Memorial, Smiley's, St. John's, and St. Joseph's, family Medicine and Community Health requires a minimum of one year of U.S. clinical experience or rotations. 3. floyd Medical Center, family Medicine Residency requires IMG applicants to have completed at least one year of documented clinical training in the United States as well as three Letters of Recommendation from faculty who have directly supervised clinical performance. 4. University of California, San francisco, family Medicine Residency states that, "Since clinical and cultural preparedness are also a key to success here, prior clinical experience in the United States is helpful. Letters of Recommendation from these experiences will further strengthen an IMG applicant's documentation of overall readiness to begin residency training in the U.S." 5. Oregon Health and Science University, Internal Medicine Residency states that, IMGs must be ECFMG® certified at time of application, must have at least one year of clinical experience in the U.S. or in a health care system similar to the U.S. and have graduated from medical school within the last six years. Please note that externships, observerships, or research work do not count as clinical experience. 6. Duke University, family Medicine Residency requires applicants to have completed at least one year of clinical patient care in an ACGME accredited program in the United States by day one of residency (an observership does not count). 7. Yale School of Medicine, Internal Medicine Residency seeks a minimum of eight weeks of hands-on direct clinical experience in a U.S. or Canadian accredited teaching hospital. We will not interview candidates who have not obtained this required clinical experience. Observerships without direct clinical responsibility do not meet these criteria. 8. University of Wisconsin Madison, family Medicine Residency states that interview selection preference is given to applicants who have clinical experience in the United States or Canada that is particularly relevant to Family Medicine (research or observerships do not qualify as clinical experience). 9. fletcher Allen Healthcare in Alliance with the University of Vermont requires that International Applicants MUST have worked in clinical medicine in the United States within the last two years. nOtE: an observership does not fulfill this requirement. 10. University of Washington, Internal Medicine Residency requires eight weeks of clinical experience with direct patient contact and accompanying Letter of Recommendation outlining the type of clinical experience. 11. Harvard University, Massachusetts General Hospital, Internal Medicine Residency considers only those with outstanding Letters of Recommendation and a year or more of clinical or research experience in the U.S. or Canada for interviews. 12. University of Michigan, Internal Medicine Residency states an IMG must possess a letter from an Internal Medicine faculty member who served as supervisor or instructor to the applicant, at a U.S. academic institution attesting to the applicant's clinical experience and competence at that institution. 13. University of nebraska Medical Center, Internal Medicine Residency states that while research abilities and experience are valuable, a strong emphasis is placed on recent clinical experience. 14. University of Rochester, Pediatrics Residency states that IMGs must complete at least eight weeks of clinical training in an ACGME-approved pediatric program or a similar program in the United States, Canada or England. Observerships and research are not acceptable as clinical training. 15. University of Pennsylvania, Department of Medicine looks for four weeks of U.S. hands-on clinical experience within the past 6 months (observerships are excluded). 16. University of north Carolina, Chapel Hill, family Medicine Residency gives preference to candidates with clinical experience in the United States.

nEW fOR tHE USMLE® AnD tHE MAtCH

New Developments with the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE®)

Refer to www.usmle.org/cru and www.usmle.org/cru/2010-06-Update.html for updates.

(October 2010) First, Step 1 will undergo content changes that will increase the clinical context of the exam and also prepare the examinee for the additions in science assessment scheduled for Step 2 and Step 3. Additionally, increases in the number of biostatistics and epidemiology items have appeared in Step 2 in 2010 and will be added to Step 3 in 2011. Second, there is the development of new item formats for Step 1, Step 2 CK, and Step 3. New literature items will test the examinee's ability to interpret and comprehend both scientific literature and pharmaceutical advertisements. Furthermore, new video and assessment activities are in development. These assessment activities will include admissions orders and laboratory testing, for example, to show the progression of an individual patient case over time, further complementing the clinical accuracy of computerbased assessments. Third, the Step 2 Clinical Skills portion will be developed to expand the nature and level of challenges faced. Standardized patient interactions will be more authentic, which will result in more demanding communication cases. Changes in patient notes will be added to assess the examinee's clinical reasoning more effectively. This will include the elimination of hand-written notes: All notes will be computer based beginning in the middle of 2011.

New ERAS® Feature of the Match: Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program (SOAP)

Refer to www.amc.org/programs/eras/pdf/soap_7-2010.pdf and www.aamc.org/programs/eras/whats_new.htm for updates.

(October 2010) The time period when unfilled Match-participating programs and unmatched applicants are allowed to directly contact each other (currently known as the managed "Scramble") will have new regulations and procedures taking effect for 2012 Match. Where in previous years, unmatched applicants were permitted to call, email and fax representatives seeking acceptance into unfilled positions, now the certified applicant may only "reapply" through ERAS® and the NRMP's® Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program (SOAP). Through SOAP and ERAS®, unfilled Match-participating programs will be able to download application files and offer phone interviews with eligible unmatched applicants. Unfilled Match-participating programs will submit preference lists through ERAS®. A program's unfilled positions will be offered to candidates in order of preference until all positions are filled or the preference list has been exhausted; programs will be able to add applicants to the end of their preference lists throughout Match Week. Therefore, the improvements made to one's application (hands-on clinical experience and/or advanced certifications) in the time leading up to SOAP will be vitally important, as well as an applicant's phone interview skills. The AmeriClerkships SOAPTrack® 2012 Package will educate, strategize and prepare the applicant for SOAP through Virtual Residency Clinics as well as eight or twelve weeks of supervised and insured clinical experience. Please see page 9 for details.

Step 4: Choose your clinical features, i.e., Hospital Guarantees and Premium Elective Specialties

All Hospital Guarantees and Premium Elective Specialties subject to approval. Please refer to the AmeriClerkships Membership Agreement for trainees' responsibility and AmeriClerkships policy disclosure.

Teaching Hospital Guarantee Verified*­ for medical students only

We guarantee that the trainee will be processed through the medical staff office of the hospital location. This ensures all requirements are met for future state licensure. (Twentyone states in the United States have strict regulations on where and how an international medical student completes their required clinical clerkships before graduation.) AmeriClerkships will guarantee your ability as a qualified clinical trainee to enter at least one (1) teaching hospital that is recognized by the ACGME or AOA, and to round on at least one (1) patient per week at that hospital (averaged over 4 weeks), along with an AmeriClerkships affiliated supervising teaching attending physician. The 4-4-4 Rule applies: four trips to the ACGME hospital, rounding on four patients, over a four week period. This type of rotation requires a written contract between AmeriClerkships Medical Society and student's Medical School; also, the student must have a nine-digit WAN, EAN, or SSN. Clinical trainee must have passed USMLE® Step 1 or Step 2 CK.

Teaching Hospital Guarantee*

Wouldn't it be fantastic to round within the same hospitals and related clinical settings where residents and residency decision makers conduct their daily rounds? Now you can! AmeriClerkships will guarantee your ability as a qualified clinical trainee to enter at least one (1) teaching hospital that is recognized by the ACGME or AOA, and to round on at least one (1) patient per week at that hospital (averaged over 4 weeks), along with an AmeriClerkships affiliated supervising teaching attending physician. The 4-4-4 Rule applies: four trips to an ACGME hospital, rounding on four patients, over a four week period. Clinical trainee must have passed USMLE® Step 1 or Step 2 CK.

Hospital Guarantee*

U.S. hospitals maintain a complex baseline developmental and procedural maze that is much different from systems overseas. Additionally, lack of hands-on familiarity with U.S. hospitals has been cited as a major residency program concern when considering a foreign physician's residency application. Assure the residency programs that you are a top applicant: AmeriClerkships guarantees your ability as a qualified clinical trainee to enter at least one (1) U.S. hospital system and to round on at least one (1) patient per week at that hospital (averaged over 4 weeks), along with an AmeriClerkships affiliated supervising teaching attending physician. The 4-4-4 Rule applies: four trips to the hospital, rounding on four patients, over a four week period.

Nursing Home Guarantee*

The number of applicants to geriatrics programs is declining, and the number of available first year positions doubled over the last decade. This means that now there is a greater opportunity for fellowship placements for those who enjoy this specialty and have proven their love by means of continued exposure. AmeriClerkships will guarantee your ability as a qualified clinical trainee to enter at least one (1) U.S. nursing home and to round on at least one (1) elderly patient per week at that nursing home (averaged over 4 weeks), along with an AmeriClerkships affiliated supervising teaching attending physician. The 4-4-4 Rule applies: four trips to the hospital, rounding on four patients, over a four week period. Differentiate your application: emphasize your geriatrics experience!

Premium Elective Specialty

Choose from the AmeriClerkships Medical Society's strong nationwide network of physicians across 43 specialties. With only a few exceptions, most specialties are available to highly qualified IMG applicants for the purposes of obtaining a super-specialty U.S. clinical experience.

Premium Elective Specialties with 100% Inpatient Hospitalist Experience

A hospitalist is an emerging medical specialty which focuses on quality medical care to individuals while they are in the hospital. Because hospitalists typically don't maintain a private outside practice, their time is devoted primarily to caring for hospitalized patients. Hospitalists manage and coordinate the entire inpatient episode of care, working closely with the patient's primary care physician and/or specialists involved.

*The protection of the patient is always our primary goal. Please note that similar to any other third-party placement procedures, the hospital(s) and attending physician(s) will have the final word about your participation in patient care.

Out-of-Network Clinical Site

We understand the importance of remaining close to family, work, or any other factor that may not allow you to move to another location. Although the network of AmeriClerkships is nationwide, your desired clinical opportunity may be outside of our affiliated sites. However, you may be able to conduct your clinical rotations without incurring moving costs by requesting this additional service. Limitations may apply and pre-approvals are required.

Step 6: Choose your supplemental residency entry consultative services:

Virtual Residency Clinics

All Residency Entry Services subject to approval. Please refer to the AmeriClerkships Membership Agreement for trainees' responsibility and AmeriClerkships policy disclosure.

Offered every other week, webinars will cover the basics of Match, the ERAS® Timeline, and what constitutes the most competitive applicant. Hosted by our Chief Clinical Officer, guest experts and former residency selection committee members, these sessions are critical for the enrolled clinical trainee to become fully prepared for the annual residency Match. Sample lectures include: mock match interviews, interview FAQs, the complete residency application package, improving the "Residency Applicant Competitive index," what's Scramble/SOAP and how to avoid it, which programs to apply to, performing well during residency and best practices for veteran IMGs. A designated number of VRCs are included with all MEDTrack® and Scramble/SOAPTrack® programs.

One-on-One Physician Residency, Match or Scramble/SOAP Consultations, and Mock Match or Mock Scramble/SOAP Interviews

Speaking of residency interviews, when was the last time you had a successful one? If you have not matched into a residency and are waiting for interviews, or you're considering to participate in the upcoming annual Scramble, you may want to consider doing a practice Webinar session with one of our former Residency Admission Committee members. Improve your communication, practice answering tough questions, and calm your nerves before the actual interviews.

ResidencyREADY® MD 2011 DVD

You should not apply to residency until you watch this DVD. This is your complete guide to securing residency interviews and a successful Match outcome, coached in the privacy of your very own living room. The first ever Evidence-Based U.S. Medical Residency Application Training and PGY-1 Retention System teaches you the basics of U.S. healthcare versus the rest of the world, avoiding devastating yet frequently performed application errors, the Match Algorithm, which specialties are truly IMG-friendly, secrets of residency interviews from an Admission Committee Member's perspective, and a successful Match outcome.

Residency Application Forensics & Diagnostics

Can you afford to take a chance with your residency application? Do you believe that you did everything correctly, even though you did not match this past year? The forensics and diagnostics program of AmeriClerkships allows you to have your important residency application documents reviewed professionally by the Senior Advisor in our Department of Acculturation and Residency Application Services. The Personal Statement (PS) will be assessed in eleven categories, including such factors as organization, terminology, tone, grammar, and rationale for choice of specialty. The Curriculum Vitae (CV) will be checked in nine categories for readability, style, clear objective, order, and selection of information, among other features. The Common Application Form (CAF) will be examined across ten measures, including organization of data, clarity, correctness of spelling, grammar, and usage as well as completeness and accuracy. The Letters of Recommendation (LOR) will be reviewed for U.S. residency relevance, genuineness, effectiveness and their overall appeal to admission committees. You will be provided a chart for each document that indicates the advisor's assessment in each area, followed by suggestions for improvement.

EXTREME Residency Interview Preparation & Makeover

Welcome to Extreme Residency Interview Preparation! This unique program is designed for those applicants who were successful in obtaining residency interviews, but who nevertheless did not match. In order to significantly increase chances of matching in the next year's residency application process, AmeriClerkships takes an extremely close look at two main factors: content and appearance. At our corporate offices in Irvine, CA, we consult with you on techniques to maximize your chances of success for your next round of interviews. Your progress will be documented by videotaping the mock interviews, both before and after. Our ultimate goal is for you to fit in with your new residency family, and we accomplish the transformation in a mood that's upbeat, positive, kind, and fun. INCLUDES: Wardrobe Consultation and Attire Reconstruction + Meetings with Aestheticians, Beauticians and Dermatologists + Personal Interview Coaching and Clinical Preparation + Global Biweekly Self Confidence and Speech Mastery Classes + Personal Acculturation and Assimilation Courses with Senior Advisors + Personal Interview Tapings and Feedback + Meal Coaching and Etiquette + Standardized Patient Encounters + Informal Oral Patient Notes, Encounter, Presentations and Feedback

Step 7: Choose your essential residency document services:

Complete Residency Application Review & Revitalization

How will your residency application stand out amongst the tens of thousands of other competitive residency applicants? Was your application professionally reviewed? As former Chief Residents and Residence Admission Committee members, the AmeriClerkships' Chief Clinical Officers are passionate about sharing their experiences with those who elect to utilize our Premium Application Review & Revitalization Services: we will analyze your entire ERAS® application, including your CAF, CV, Personal Statement and Letters of Recommendation(s), and gauge the effectiveness by which you have presented yourself to residency programs. INCLUDES: Residency Application Revision + One Personal Statement Revision + One Curriculum Vitae Revision + One Year of Biweekly Virtual Residency Clinic Subscription

Residency Application Revision

The residency application is your ticket to interviews. After thousands of residency applications submitted by IMGs for review, not one has been error free. This service employs the same essential review and editing techniques as our more comprehensive Complete Revitalization, but focuses only on your Common Application Form (CAF). Prior to the first draft, you will receive a residency application template to guide you. For greater editing precision and maintenance of continuity across your application, combine with Personal Statement and Curriculum Vitae Revision Services.

Personal Statement (PS) Revision

A personal statement is a document submitted as part of a medical residency application that describes your abilities, attributes, and accomplishments as evidence of your aspirations for pursuing a medical residency position. This is your chance to stand out from all the other applicants! An important quality of a medical residency personal statement is how well it communicates professional ambitions in personal terms, all the while taking your international medical experience and relating it to the U.S. healthcare setting. It outlines a career development plan including previous U.S. clinical experiences, current status, and interest in that specialty and future goals. Medical residency admission faculties reviewing your application want to know that you have a personal commitment--the deeper the better--to the specialty you desire. Thus, it is imperative that your PS is written in a compelling, cohesive and understandable way that relates to you, as an IMG.

Curriculum Vitae (CV) Revision

The Curriculum Vitae (CV) documents a residency applicant's medical, academic, clinical qualifications and achievements and is intended for an academic & clinical audience before or during an actual residency interview. It is important that your CV is clear, accurate, unambiguous and attractive, and that it conforms to accepted academic convention. Our experienced team of editors will create a unique, professional CV custom-tailored to adhere to your own objectives and residency choice!

tEStIMOnIALS

Being unfamiliar with Western medicine, I was initially suspicious of the concept of AmeriClerkships. How could a company like AmeriClerkships cover clerkships across the nation while giving their clients exceptional service? Well, the results far exceeded my expectations! I was delighted with the excellent service on my recent clinical experience, and would recommend the AmeriClerkships team to any International Medical Graduate who is considering practicing medicine in the United States. Dr. Kofi Snellville, GA I am so glad that I can finally send you an e-mail with good news. I received an offer for a PGY-1 position with a Family Medicine Residency Program in Pennsylvania yesterday, and I signed the contract. Thank you and all the AmeriClerkships team for the help and support you provided. It has been a pleasure to be part of your team for more than six months. You helped to bring my dream to life. It is with your help I achieved my goal. The personal statement revision, clinical experience, advice and insight given by your team, the psychological support, my teaching attending and the new friends I made were keys to my recent success. You are doing an outstanding job. Thank you again for everything! Dr. Elina Allentown, PA Well, it proves you are correct! The program director called me this morning. They gave the offer to someone else. I am so sorry to hear this. I did ask what I should focus on next. He said that I should add hands-on clinical experience. You told me this million times. You said to me, "Without hands-on clinical experience, I am like running a car with three wheels." You are perfectly right. I am still hurting, but it is time to think clinicals now. What are the options? Dr. Shirley Chicago, IL I am really very satisfied about the decision I made to enroll with this center through AmeriClerkships. I am still into my second month of clinical experience and I am enjoying each and every bit of it. I met my attending physician on the first day of my rotation and he is a very intelligent and wonderful person. I interact with the patients and their families. I really appreciate his efforts he is putting in every candidate to make them at ease with their future residency. I cannot rate him less than 5 out of 5. As you know, I had to relocate from my home; you would be glad to know that people here are very nice and friendly, and there are several hotels nearby the hospital. The one I am staying at is a short walk from the hospital. This is the type of hospital where I would love to spend three years of residency. Dr. Manu Rome, GA
