Question AmeriClerckships versus Advanced Colleges of America


Whatīs the difference between AmeriClerckships and Advanced College of America?

Apparently they are affiliated but are two separate entities, but they claim to have different programs, different regulations and different enrollment processes.

At the end I guess we all want to know whatīs best to get USCE and have a competitive CV.

Thank you

Due to the fact that our two organizations share the objective of helping medical graduates to place into U.S. medical residency programs, we constantly face the question of: who is better, ACA or Americlerkships? At Americlerkships, you have the flexibility of picking and choosing what residency support services you would like to opt for, along with the length of time that you wish to spend on your hands-on clinical experiences, and in however many specialties you desire. As for ACA, the Medical Residency Track includes a strict curriculum that may provide medical graduates with the experiences, knowledge and support needed for U.S. residency and that also offers a back-up plan; you do not have the flexibility of choosing what services you may opt for, but you may design how the program may work for you. We want to make sure our doctors are well informed and educated in making the best decision for their each individual situation, so for some of our doctors, Americlerkships may be more ideal for them, while others prefer the structure and benefits that Advanced Colleges of America is able to provide through a single program. I encourage everyone to correspond with representatives from both of our organizations, so that may find the option that is the best fit for you.
