Default Does Medclerkship worth it?

Hi everyone,

Like the title said. Does Med clerkship worth it? Would you recommend it? If you do, why?

Did you know about other companies that offer the same? I mean externship rotations, and of course have a good feedback from them.

I'll be very grateful if you could share your experience with me.
I'm looking in North Carolina, Washington, Baltimore, and Chicago.

Thanks in advance!

I was able to gain a 4 week hands on internal medicine rotation in NY and another 4 week externship in Chicago. Were excellent experiences and am planning another rotation. My preceptors were informative and I was able to get a solid LoRs. I recommend you go for medclerkships ACGME accredited programs.
