Hi, I recently completed a 4-week Internal Medicine clerkship in Brooklyn with MedClerkships.com in December

The physician I was shadowing was very professional and gave me a lot of one on one time to discuss any issues/questions I had. He even let me take a couple of days off to study for my CS exam. Overall, an excellent experience - I was provided an outstanding LOR and learned a lot.

If there is anything else you want to know, I'd be happy to let you know about my time there.

Was the clerkship in a private hospital? Or in a university hospital?

The program I was enrolled in had me rotating at 4 different locations as I shadowed the preceptor along his daily routine: 3 were university affiliated hospitals and 1 was a private clinic

hope this helps

I actually completed my rotation with them back in December... My rotation took me through 4 hospitals all university affiliated

Thinking about enrolling in Pediatrics with them in April - will keep you posted

Currently doing some side projects and research in NC, wish you the best of luck in NYC!

Can a student be guaranteed to renew rotations with this form, provided there were no issues? Can you provide all clinicals for electives in the same city?

I did back to back internal medicine clerkships with them a couple months ago

I was given the option of the same hospital or a different one in my second cycle but it was a little too far for me so I stayed in the same spot

They didn't have a problem with signing up for 2 cycles.. You may want to ask them beforeha

i just finished an IM rotation IN NY with them. in my opinion they are the most genuine and upfront out of all the companies out there. i had a great experience with my preceptor and was able to go to 3 hospitals and 2 clinics, i also worked with 2 other doctors besides my preceptor. great learning experience. the only reason im writing this is because i was also worried about enrolling with them but frankly im glad that i did, and if you are considering them GO FOR IT.

FYI, they gave me a discount for having HIPAA, and for the medical liability insurance I got on my own.

You should contact Peter leone at academic wins or Mike at Dietrich healthcare and get your insurance on your own. its MUCH CHEAPER and you can use it for future rotations at the hospitals you rotate at if you get a 1 year policy.. All of the externship companies just charge more for the same insurance you can get on your own... Just my 2 cents.

PM me if you need more info

Thanks a lot for the info! But a few doubts (which might appear basic and stupid, because i'm not sure about the HIPAA and medical insurance guidelines). Can an international medical graduate coming on a B1 visitors visa get HIPAA and the insurance like how you mentioned? And at a cheaper cost than what Medclerkships provide bundled along with their official price?

Anytime someone has to do the work for you they are going to charge you i would think... Do the work on your own in life and you can probably find it cheaper. Im guessing this is the case but my best advice is to get a 1 year polic no matter what- the 1 month is a ripoff. Insurance companies make money remember that. You will need it for externships in September - January. You can still get interviews and that's probably the best time to be in hospitals. To work around program directors in hospitals. Meet the chairman. Introduce yourself to the attendings and ask if they need anything. Even little things like getting a sick patient water goes a long way. If you just work 7am to 8pm someone will see you and give you credit. Ultimately it's your scores that matter and the edge is interview skills and great LoRs. Btw is anyone starting in ny in August?? PM me if you want to share a room

Wow thank you rumed.. I can't believe I paid them for that certificate. Do you happen to have ANY of the following: BLS, ACLS, infection control , blood borne pathogen , occupational safety certificates?? That would save me alone alot. Thanks man!!!

we typically advise applying 3 months in advance of your desired start date

that being said, we have many programs available with notice of less than a month and immediate placement (in some situations)

what are you interested in?

@avanthi

Hi Avanthi, it really depends on the time of year. August/September programs are almost guaranteed to have multiple students, as students scramble to gain their final USCE prior to the ERAS deadline.

I would recommend our Atlanta programs for this time of year, as the class sizes are almost guaranteed to be smaller and the experience offered is of the same quality as our NYC program.

@littlehair

Typically, this program has 1-2 students enrolled at a time. Regarding hospital quality, this is an ACGME accredited teaching hospital.

The only issue with this program is the fact that there is little public transportation and we recommend that students have their own transportation.

Default Pathology externship in DC

@MedClerkships

Is the hospital in a safe area?

Does the preceptor usually provide strong letter of recommendation?

@littlehair

Actually yes, the hospital is in a very safe suburban location. This particular preceptor does indeed provide a strong performance-based LOR, stress on performance-based because the LOR will reflect the nature of your experience and your aptitude.

Default NYC Externship

Im also interested in any recent NYC externship experience with them. On the phone they said that for IM hospital days are only 2-4 out of the week. In reality, how many days a week did you guys spend at those hospital? Do you do rounds? Do you get to stick around the hospital afterwards / put in extra hours if you so desire, or are you attached to your preceptor at all times and no longer welcome once he or she leaves that facility?

Thanks

Default Total scam

Dear All,

I have tried Medclerckships in Oct 2015, in Chicago. very Unfortunate, we found out that medclerckship actually illegally places you as an extern in a hospital, once the hospital found about us we were in big trouble.

in addition to being illegally in a hospital which can jeopardize your career, they places you in one of the state's worst hospitals ever.

My experience with them was really bad, I'm now trying Americlerckship, and it seems to be as bad as Medclerckships.

all these companies promises you with Hands on training but you end up in observeship in America's worst hospital, so save your money, and find genuine observership in a good hospital for free, I found out that many hospitals offers free observerships in a good legal setting, like for example Jackson memorial hospital in Miami.

Ahmad, I would be more than happy to clarify any problems you may be having. We have a contract at the hospital for rotations so this is a bit concerning to hear those remarks.

Unfortunately i experienced that my seld, i was sent to a hospital by u last year, but when they found out about us, they disrespected us and asked us to leave, we then has to stay at the doctor's private clinic. And i haven't even received a certificate of Completion for the rotation to prove it on my CV for future residency application.

This was never brought up directly to your coordinator nor was a certificate requested. Please follow up directly with your assigned coordinator and they can at least assist you with obtaining a certificate of completion. We assist all students with unforeseen issues when they are brought to our attention and would like to discuss this matter directly.

Im also in a Chicago program right now and this is very surprising news. My rotation is going well and there have been none of these issues. I am concerned since I have been happy with the hands on programs so far.

Many reasons why I didn't report back; Being illegally placed in Chicago's worst reputation hospital in one of the most unsafe areas, was enough stress for someone living alone in a big city for the first time, to accept what happened and just continue my rotation in the private clinic. in addition to the fact that I actually had no idea to whom I should report, thinking of you as scammers would only make me more blocked of thinking.

I don't know who is my assigned coordinator, this happened in Oct 2015.


And most importantly, following up with assigned coordinator won't change the fact that you put me in a position were I could have lost my future in the US. And won't change the fact that you placed in America's worst reputation hospital.

let me explain how bad is that hospital; that same year I attended the RSNA conference, and I met with high official in the ACR to ask for her advice on how to get Radiology position in the US, when she saw the hospital where you placed me on my CV, she was scared, she told me to that putting that hospital in my CV can actually harm it as it had very bad reputation.

I'm open to provide more specific information and details to anyone, because I know how bad is to fall in a trap, and spend hard earned money on nothing

I can't generalize my case to everyone, but I can assume that the hospital administration have no idea you are there. we did hands on rotation for a week before the hospital administration found out about us by coincidence. I can also assume you are in JP if I'm not mistaken.

Hi Ahmad -- thanks for providing your email address. We checked our records and have no noted contact from you during that timeframe where we could have been of assistance. That is no excuse however and we strive for our students to have the best experience possible. We are surprised to hear this, as that location hosts hundreds of students and graduates per year without these types of complaints. You may have encountered an unfortunate event where the hospital was being audited and all students are removed from the premises so they do not lose their teaching status. This is an uncommon occurrence and we apologize if you were caught in that and misunderstood the situation. It's difficult to remedy a situation from over a year ago when we were not alerted at the time.

We routinely reschedule, relocate, and switch students from programs with any unforeseen issues. We also work with all of the medical education departments of the teaching hospitals directly where we place students in Chicago, meaning we could have moved you to another program in a better neighborhood. Not all of Chicago's neighborhoods are great and this location is in a very gentrified area of the city that hosts many IMGs.

You can always contact our coordinating team at admin@medclerkships.com and team@medclerkships.com and by phone at (646) 543-6586. We know you've had extensive communication with at least one of our coordinators based on email history. We will also reach out shortly directly to you for feedback.
