Default Free Observerships , clerkships, externships list and Reviews

I posted in other thread but thought we can create a list of FREE programs and Observerships, clerkships, externship programs at hospitals.. Please contribute with programs u have with links and help all medical students.. I have done many rotations last year with hospitals and also doing now with imgworld, AMO, medclerkships, and imgclinicals program. have not done ameri or the united medical rotation company but if we can post all the links then we can help each other without any of the companies

imgclinicals = helped a lot to get starting outpatient and inpatient experience becuz it was cheap only 1800. You do work with residents in the program at hospital so not as much as time with the preceptor as my other rotations. but some residents gave good reviews to me and said they will mention to residency coordinator. hoping at least 1 iv from this

Americlerkships = they have been here long time but I heard lot of bad reviews.. I checked google and there are so many upset people with the both companies americlerkships and said same company is aca advanced colleges of America which is also dr mizani. I posted some links but Not all the rotations are bad but i don't think they are honest everything. If you have good experience plz post

Imgworld = only few cities they have like Houston Atlanta and Chicago. They said all inpatient rotations but did not go with them because could not find any reviews and my friends had not heard

Chicagoclerkships = some friends did their programs but it was outpatient only and they have good reviews. Person in charge is not a doctor her name is lori but she is helping imgs and picks u up at airport. this looks like good program if you want to be in chicago only. my friend also did neurosurgery and he liked the doctor a lot.

AMO = it is a new company.. there is a guy named Kyle who is cheating medical students. He is not a doctor and scamming Imgs. Look on google for posts and there.. Some middle eastern students put lawsuits against him for not giving evals and overcharging. Stay away or legal issues I think with them. I signed with them but did not pay as they demanded the fees before giving any information

Medclerkships = very expensive and can do some rotations but they helped with research and residency help for free .. I paid a lot so if u can get cheaper on ur own go for it.. my first rotation was both outpatient and inpatient but there was 6 students at same time with 2 of the doctors

Unitedmedicalrotations = I never heard of company I think it is new and just opened.. caribbean schools are not good and their rotations are bad so I don't know how rotations will be for img as most carib are us citizens and is easier for them to get residency ... I got a lot of messages came from max_volume saying to contact them I am guessing he is working for them

all programs I can tell you it is expensive but the best point is to find the observerships on your own and u don't have to pay expensive moneys to the companies but if you are matching this year it is hard to get on your own.. U have to apply almost 8 months beforehand and work on visas situation.. All pds and chairmen know img needs usce but how else can they get??

Here is a list of some hospital programs u can get my seniors have sent me... Check out providence, Sinai, Jamaica, Cornell sites also. My colleagues got into these programs in almost 4 months time

IM and fm they have residency programs
