Hi Ammar - I actually have experience with MedClerkships in their NYC IM/FM and Atlanta Psych programs. Thought it was a good experience overall and made great connections. What would you like to know?

Do they post you in teaching hospitals or just private clinics?

I was placed in a combination of hospital and private clinic. Basically, we saw patients at the clinic during the day and hospital in the afternoons (Atlanta psych) and we saw patients at the clinic during the week (4 days) and hospital all weekends (NYC IM). The NYC program is a little weird bc you basically don't have weekends except for Mondays but you can conceivably work 7 days per week and really bust your butt to get good letters/connections with other docs.


Hope that helped!
