Default externship

I had one month externship sponsored by Future-doc, it was very valuable Hands-on US experience, which gave me the chance to interact with US patients & helped me understanding many things about the american culture be side improving my language skills. I think among many other options for externships, especially in Chicago, the future Doc offers the combination of reasonable prices & real US hospital and clinic experience. I forgot to say that I had really enjoyed my time in Chicago which is the most beautiful city in USA in my opinion. The downtown is awesome with many tourist attractions. So I strongly recommend Future-doc to your externship

Yes... I agree with him. I did one month rotation last year. It was awesome. Emergency Medicine Externship arranged by future doc is definitely valuable and useful experience for IMG, seeking residency in US. It allowed me to perform physical examination and history taking to real US patients presenting to ER unit in the hospital. The attending ER physician is very active and always passionate to teach the externs. I strongly recommend it to all IMGs regardless of the speciality they are looking for in the matching.

Default Externship Future - Doc

I did a 12 week externship with Future- Doc. It was the best rotation I ever had. I got plenty of hands on experience. Had the opportunity to practice history taking and physical exam come up with ddx and treatment plan. I felt like a resident. USA experience is a must for IMG. Residency Program directors really like to choose student with USA clinical experience. Future - Doc does a great job integrating you into the USA medical system. Highly recommend externship via Future - Doc. I also had Future -Doc help me with my personnel statement. They do an amazing job putting your thoughts into words and they have it flow so nicely. Once again I highly recommend them for all you USMLE and Residency preparation.

Default Future-Doc experience

I had a very good experience with Future-Doc. Dr.Johnson who co-ordinates with us and arranges the rotation is very helpful. The externship i had allowed me hands-on clinical experience that i needed to make my CV stronger when applying for match.
The doctors were friendly and i was able to do history taking and examination on many patients. I would recommend this program for those who need hands on USCE.

Looks like a troll thread. Three people with no reputation (no other posts) recommending the FUTURE doc so highly. I would not believe it. Ask your friends who have done externship for recommendations

I did one month rotation recently with Future Doc. I was amazed at their professionalism and ability to accommodate to get the best possible clinical experience in my rotations. Dr J is very personable, highly knowledgeable and always makes sure that students get the best out of rotation. I got a chance to work with numerous patients and was exposed to various clinical cases. This rotation really benefited me to gain lot of expertise that I can use in my future residency.
