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
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
I have never heard of FMG portal

Default Americlerckships

IT IS EXPENSIVE..
they messed up my budget.
when they say its affiliated with hospital .. please know that it is with a clinical physician who is affiliated with the hospital and he is not taking you for rounds.

so it is going to be mainly outpatient clinic with NOOOOOO inpatient exposure.
i worked with them in chicago.

They told me that too.. But my preceptor didn't take me there for rounds. In fact he didn't have any patient admitted so he never really went to the hospital he was in clinic all day.

No i have done with them i guess.. but it is a policy they dont tell until you pay. Chicago clerckships and stepaheadimg also don't tell till you pay.
it is creepy but at the same time we sometimes dont have choice but to pay them and get our selves into the game.
and also they can't play around with your money Its USA if anything with money happens bank and paypal and credit cards people help you out.
