|7/30/2021 16:15:16||Tharika||3/4/2019||Internal Medicine||Houston||Finding clerkship for an international medical graduate is not an easy task! For someone like me who had no family in the US, I didn’t want to go through the hassle of looking for a clerkship while I was in the US alone. MedClerkship offered me multiple options to choose the location and they were really flexible with the change of dates. The physicians I shadowed were helpful in guiding me through the residency process and I had a great hands-on clinical experience. I believe that they wrote strong LoRs which helped me match, despite having average scores. The dream of pursuing residency in USA came true with the help of MedClerkships.||3 months of clerkship and a free personal statement editing service. Thank you very much for being flexible with locations. |
My Visa was rejected for the first time and the second it was approved with the letter you provided.
|The preceptors were kind enough to change the dates on my LoRs to recent dates which looked good on the letters. The personal statement editing was beneficial to me, as it’s one of the major factors of application.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||TX300FM||TX300IMCA|
|8/6/2021 10:10:29||Marheb||6/7/2021||Internal Medicine||Brooklyn, NY||I was mostly happy with how efficient my clinical program enrolment process was despite my arranging a week before the start date of my clinical rotations. My program enrolment was confirmed within two days, and MedClerkships helped facilitate the best possible preceptorship experience that I could have asked for.||The COVID-19 pandemic brought several challenges for the present residency application cycle. One of these challenges required those residency applicants who could not travel to the U.S. for in-person U.S. clinical experience to opt for alternative clinical experiences. MedClerkships allowed me to gain U.S. clinical and research experience via their remote telemedicine programs, which were exceptionally useful and engaging.||The opportunity to complete remote telemedicine clinical and research rotations has helped me gain more clinical knowledge as I prepare for residency. This experience has further refined my capacity to adapt and overcome challenges, making me a stronger candidate for residency while we all navigate the current COVID-19 pandemic.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||RES300IM||RES300AS|

|8/19/2021 14:57:05||Muhammad Ahmed||12/1/2017||Cardiology||Orlando||It was a first time for me to see a patient being treated for Afib with electrophysiological ablation. As I came from an under resourced country where ablation is not yet available, it was a very eye opening experience to see mapping of the heart and then ablation done in real time in a EPS lab that too with such an amazing preceptor as Dr S||Exposure to a world class EPS lab and interventional cardiology that i know for sure wouldn’t have been available in any other rotation that I’d have done||Working in inpatient as well as outpatient clinics will have significant positive effect in my residency application.

|9/9/2021 13:05:10||Jaya Sri||7/19/2021||Family Medicine||Houston, TX||Dr Y’s clinic experience was the best. He gave me complete autonomy with the management plans of the patients. I learnt about management of patients with chronic debilitating illnesses. Also, the clinic staff were so friendly and welcoming. I’ve made some really great friends with this experience!||Dr Y arranged for me to shadow him in the hospital, in inpatient and ICU in addition to the outpatient clinic. It was a good learning opportunity to see the management of patients in the hospital ranging from a regular cold in the ER to MRSA in ICU. Dr Y discussed management plans of different patients including chronic Afib, sudden onset C.diff in the inpatient unit. This experience was so worthwhile and I believe I would value the most.||I was able to obtain the much needed clinical experience in the field I’m applying to.

|9/16/2021 12:51:05||Jaya Sri||8/30/2021||Family Medicine||Telehealth at NJ (teleUSCE)||I was able to talk to few patients but certainly don’t recall any particular experience that I am happy with. It might be because of the platform of rotation rather than the preceptor. Patients weren’t comfortable enough, which is understandable. If I could do it all over again, I would choose to attend in-person rotation.||I believe the major benefit was that I didn’t have to personally attend the clinic for the experience. Dr G and her husband tried their best to make me part of their team. They called me on whatsapp and made me talk to their patients which I think was pretty great on their part. I felt the conversations were informal. Although, I did learn quite a few things about how outpatient clinics work.||I’ve gotten an LOR from Dr G, which I think adds strength to my application.||Yes||Agree – 4||I’m very happy with the customer service provided by Medclerkships. Dan checked up on me during the rotation, making sure everything was going good. He contacted the preceptors multiple times on my behalf when I wasn’t able to reach out, which is so kind of him. I would say my experience was great partly because of Dan. Thanks again for all your help!||RES303FM|

He is always calm and patient in carefully listening any questions from every student and answer. He encouraged participation from every students.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||Yes, quick repsonse from begining till completion of rotation in all aspects like type of rotation, preceptior details, payment method issue, any issue in zoom meeting etc.||RES301PSY|

|9/23/2021 13:57:01||Dr.||7/6/2020||Internal Medicine & Hem/Onc||(teleUSCE)||At the time of applying for residency, I had been out of medical school and my US electives for 3 years. Therefore, I was looking for additional US Clinical Experience. A friend recommended MedClerkships and I booked two externships with the agency. Unfortunately, right after that, the covid pandemic started and travel became impossible. MedClerkships was very flexible when it came to changing the start date. Eventually, they arranged for my rotations to be done virtually.||Despite the virtual nature of them, they still provided a decent insight into primary care in the United States and enabled me to obtain much needed recommendation letters from US physicians. I ended up using those LoRs at most of the places I got interviews from and one of them at the place where I ultimately matched, a university-affiliated program in NYC.||They also provided the CV/PS editing service. After the match, the program required me to obtain updated copies of the LoRs and MedClerkships helped me get in touch with the attending and obtain the LoR.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||Overall, MedClerkships delivered all the services we agreed on and was very flexible during the unprecedented time of the first covid wave. As such, I am happy to report my positive experience and recommend MedClerkships as a reliable agency for IMGs looking to find clinical experience in the USA.||RES300IM||RES300HONC|

|9/24/2021 13:04:40||Rose||8/30/2021||Pediatric Cardiology||Kissimmee||I was happy to acquire more responsability than during observerships. I was able to interview patients, perfom EKGs alone and present the patient to my attending after it. |
It was an experience that allowed me to grow as a future physician.
|Independance= I was trusted with many tasks during the day. My preceptor would always be available for my questions or if I needed help.||It boosted my confidence in my medical and personal skills. I feel more prepared for residency.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||I am very happy with the customer service.||FL301PED|

An experience that I definitely have to mention is about the time she called in a patient who has a rare birth disorder just so me and my colleague to interact with the patient to better understand the condition and prepare a patient note.||I got to see and learn first hand about what really is compassionate patient care.||A good doctor-patient relationship is one of my primary goals as a physician and rotating with Dr. A has really set a high standard for me to emulate in the same in my future practice.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||Yes.

|9/25/2021 13:08:55||Priya||5/27/2019||Cardiology||Queens, New York||Dr. M really created an environment where I was free to engage and learn from with any of the staff at the clinic including medical assistants, physician assistants, EKG, ECHO and nuclear stress test technicians, cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, an cardiac electrophysiologists etc.||The opportunity to learn from so many different cardiologists and other healthcare staff and the exposure to such a culturally diverse patient population has definitely contributed to my growth as a physician.||The diverse patient exposure has improved my interpersonal skills in the face of cultural and linguistic differences. Each individual at the clinic has taught me something new exposing me to different perspectives all of which are united in their commitment to patient care.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||Yes, especially the prompt response to any query.||NY100C|
|10/1/2021 13:59:08||Aanchal||4/19/2021||Internal Medicine||Boston, MA||The preceptor is triple board certified in IM,GI and allergy. He runs a private practice which is super fast paced and provides highly detailed and specialised care the patients. He is also headlining multiple reserve trials, the perfect balance of private and academic life. He is extremely very smart and working at his clinic for me was an absolute privilege. I mostly worked in the clinic and also observed him in the minor OT during EGD and Colonoscopy procedure. I did struggle in the first week of my rotation as it was a new challenging environment, but after my learning period, I really polished all the necessary skills that IMGs require for residency. The rotation is hard and demanding, but has the highest rewards!! I helped him out on some research as well! This rotation definitely provided a BIG boost to my match journey!||After my rotation with this precpetor, I am confident in my ability to take histories, exam patients, form differentials, diagnose and treat patients. Most of all, I am extremely very confident with my ability to document the interactions in EHR.||These skills are absolutely essential for residency in the US and for the practice beyond. I have received multiple compliments since my rotation with the doctor. After working at such a fast paced clinic, I am easily able to handle heavy workloads and never feel overwhelmed.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||Dan was extremely very helpful! He helped me find rotations that were best suitable for me. He is super fast with his responses and always had the answers to my questions. |
Dr. Mike is the nicest! He definitely went above and beyond while helping me out with my application, and would schedule a phone call whenever I had any concerns and doubts. He was super reassuring, especially when I needed the reassurance.
There are many organisations that try fleecing IMGs and don’t provide good services, I have had my fair share of interactions with them.
MedClerkships is definitely NOT one of those, I got a whole lot more than what I paid for!

|10/13/2021 12:34:03||Vanessa||9/1/2021||Emergency Medicine||Chicago||I was very happy with my experience in Chicago at the hospital. I worked mainly with Dr S and received both guidance and enough space to be able to work-up patients on my own (with oversight). I enjoyed learning about various conditions such as asthma exacerbation, CHF exacerbation, opioid overdose and various bites and wounds . Moreover, the entire staff in the emergency department was absolutely lovely. I was even allowed to assist in some nursing procedures and overall learned a lot about the workflow in the ED.||I value the guidance and also the autonomy I was given to interview and work-up patients on my own. This was one of the best hands on experiences I have had.||While I have worked in a U.S. emergency department before (research), I have never worked up a patient in the ED. There is no direct equivalent to emergency medicine in Poland and I value being able to have this experience during a Covid year and being able to obtain a letter of recommendation with which to apply to EM.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||Yes! I was sold on the company after being placed in contact with a former student who could tell me about his experience. I had used one other company in the past, which did not work well for me because they would not respond to my questions and concerns. Medclerkships responded promptly and worked around my hectic schedule. I also enjoyed the free consultations.||IL200EM|

|11/3/2021 11:41:07||Gurraj||10/4/2021||Psychiatry||Houston||I had a phenomenal experience with my preceptor. A specific experience that stood out for me was one day during morning rounds, the preceptor told me to take the lead with all the patient interviews and follow-ups and that was the first time when I truly felt that calling inside saying “this is the right field for you”. I took the initiative and saw every patient that day. Following days when things weren’t extremely hectic, the preceptor would let me take the lead again. Not only was that important in refining my skills in history taking and mental status exam taking, but helped build my confidence a lot.||When you watch this preceptor in his element, practicing Psychiatry and engaging with his patients, you really appreciate the fundamentals of Psychiatry. The preceptor was an expert at communication skills while showing empathy that you’re left amazed at how he was able to get the necessary information from the patient for a diagnosis and further treatment planning. It’s such a benefit because you appreciate and realize that this is how you would want to emulate yourself as a psychiatrist.||Since the preceptor was very well established and had interviewed candidates for residency in the past, he would sometimes ask you questions he would ask in residency interviews. When I tell you those questions really made you think, they definitely made you think outside of the box. It helped me mentally prepare myself for any curve ball questions I probably won’t see coming, but will be ready for now.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||I was extremely happy with the service provided by Medclerkships. Not only were they quick in replying back, they would assist me immediately whenever I had any questions or doubts. The background paperwork needed for the rotation was done efficiently and I had no trouble upon arrival at my rotation site with any outstanding documentation. It was a smooth first experience and I’m very happy I went with Medclerkships.||TX300PS|

Dr T held regular discussions to engage all of us in diagnostic procedures and management. In a field of cardiology, he pushed us and educated us regularly. It was inpatient more than outpatient, which I preferred as well. As a hospitalist, he took us through many more procedures and it was a rewarding education and exposure with him. He also took us through prepping for the main interview for the match.
I followed Dr I in his clinic and he was a good instructor who helped us all feel grounded and made the team work well under him. I was well exposed to clinical setups and was able to add to that with Dr I.

He never lost a smile on his face. Since I had been practicing in my clinic, I could apply his way of dealing with picky patients when I returned to my country.||When I started the rotation, I wasn’t used to the strong accent patients were talking in. However, I improved my language skill and could experience real clinical stuff by participating in practice at Dr. K’s clinic. He generously let me do that.

Afterwards,we sat down for dinner and he gave me a lot of tips regarding applying for residency. Later,he took me to his house to spend the night so that I would not have to drive all the way back to my hotel (60 miles away). The next morning ,he even made me a cup of coffee, boiled eggs and cookies.The fact that a person of such great caliber would be so humble and down to earth as to not only invite a stranger to his home , who he had known for just a few weeks,but also make breakfast,touched my heart and soul||I have learnt a lot of things for my mentor Dr M, such as how we should treat a patient completely (physical,spiritual and emotional)and not just their symptoms.He taught me how to carefully elicit history,teasing out certain findings that would help me clinch the diagnosis.He painstakingly explained each and every sign and symptom and also asked me questions so that I would remember better.He gave me an assignment everyday so that I could discuss that topic with him the next day.He showed me how to handle the EMR(electronic medical record).Finally,he showed me a lot of endoscopic procedures,some of which I had never seen before,and also explained the findings to me|
Dr M is one of the best doctor and human being I have ever met , and I wish he had been my teacher in medical school.I strongly recommend others to try a rotation at lake jackson with him and his team(who are extremely smart,supportive and kind as well )
|The knowledge imparted upon me by Dr M will help me immensely in my preparation for USMLE step 3 , along with providing me with a smooth introduction into the inner workings of the american healthcare system.Watching him perform endoscopies quickly and efficiently inculcated a sense of calm control in me,and motivated me to also pursue my dream of becoming a gastroenterologist in the United States more seriously||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||I’m very happy with the prompt service provided by Medclerkship. My only request is to have a response system on weekends/holidays, in case any student wants to reach out regarding something urgent.In my case, I did not know where I had to report on my first day,and I had a difficult time trying to find that out since no one was answering emails/texts/calls.I was finally able to get a hold of Mr Dan , who immediately gave me the required details||TX300GA|

|7/13/2023 19:34:38||Sudheera||6/12/2023||Interventional cardiology||Houston||Dr. P is a very passionate doctor and an enthusiastic teacher. One day I made a presentation on a topic related to cardio-oncology. Dr. P not only listened to the entire presentation, but also took nearly 45 mins after the presentation to teach me about “myocardial strain” – something that I wasn’t sure of while I was presenting. He patiently answered all my questions. That learning session was truly an inspiring experience for me.||There are many, but the 3 most important benefits are:|
1) learnt how to bond with patients by proper communication.
2) had the opportunity to observe interventional procedures in cardiology.
3) this experience reignited my interest in interventional cardiology.

|7/22/2023 10:55:00||Shanyan||6/12/2023||Pathology||Tucson (teleUSCE)||Dr. T demonstrated a high level of professionalism and dedication to the teaching profession. With his comprehensive preparations, we were able to be exposed to many well-classified cases. Dr. T can answer all our question immediately with sufficient evidence.||Besides the knowledge I learned, what impressed me most was the importance of “carefulness” for a pathologist. Dr. T always mentioned, the diagnosis from pathologists significantly affected, most of time, “determined” the therapeutic strategies of other parts of the medical care.||During this rotation, Dr. T tried to generate “good habits” for us. For example, he would stop us if we gave a quick “diagnosis” of the cases and asked us to start from the “descriptions”, such as the locations, staining methods and features. We kept on adding descriptions until we have on more information, then we could give our diagnosis. It is true that for a pathologist, especially as a rookie, I should never consider the real cases were “straight forward”, and we are “smart “enough. Carefulness is the priority.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||Yes. Fast response and nice.||RES302PTH|

I remember that when I was feeling sick on the morning of a day of my rotation, I was not sure about if I will be able to report to the office in the morning and when I told Dr L that I’m not feeling well, he assured me to make myself feel better, not worry about the day and get enough rest.

For example, I noted that when an “unexpected” piece of tissue appeared on a slide, the pathologists did not disregard it as mere “contamination”. Instead, I learned to track such anomalies back to the source, auditing experimental procedures, comparing slides with others in the set, and meticulously recording all details.||I learned to start my analysis considering all possible factors until I accumulate enough information to arrive at a diagnosis with confidence.||Such attention to detail improves quality in our samples and procedures, and, ultimately, enhances patient safety, develops “good habits” for the pathology residency training.||Yes||Strongly Agree – 5||GA300PTH|

Taking each presentation and explaining why a particular approach is being taken in the management method as well as using current data to back that up|
I can now record EKG by myself and the different axis of echocardiogram was explained to me
|Learning how to write clinical notes will enable me to communicate properly in the field of medicine and also learning to look for current data to back my management will keep me abreast with the changing ways of medicine. It has also helped me to learn to manage each individual in a unique way that is tailored to that person even though they may present with the same symptoms |
Also, at any point in time, I can record and interpret EKG and echos in my hospital thus I can function efficiently with or without the presence of any technician
