“Cost” takes on many meanings. Financially, the standard four-week clinical experience costs $1,499 for observerships and $1,999 for hands-on rotations. However, this may vary for certain experiences depending on exposure and physician preference. $499 of the total cost is collected once your resume and eligibility are approved. The remaining balance is paid 45 days before your start date. Discounts are available. If you choose to complete multiple months with us, we take $100 off each month. If you join with a group, we will give you and your friends $100 off as a group. If you refer friends or colleagues, you receive $100 off per enrolled referral.
The experience also “costs” time. Deciding to embark on an AMOpportunities clinical experience means devoting four weeks of your time to enriching your medical knowledge. Because our experiences are physician-based, hospital exposure is dependent upon a number of factors including the schedule of each host physician, the physician’s admitting privileges and patient load. Most programs generally include 1 to 2 days a week of experience.
We streamline the process of organizing and planning for your experience. But, preparing for the experience “costs” effort on your part. We do not directly provide you with a visa nor can we guarantee your visa eligibility with the United States government, but we help you along the way. We will give you placement and invitation letters to help you obtain a B-1 visa, but you are ultimately responsible for going through the United States Consulate for approval.
Housing and Insurance
Although we provide lists of available and reasonably priced housing based on your clinic site, you are also responsible for securing and paying for housing. All of our clinical experiences require United States health insurance, which you will need to purchase. For hands-on rotations, professional liability insurance is needed. AMOpportunities can on-board medical students under our insurance policy for an administrative fee of $150 for four weeks. Medical graduates would need to obtain malpractice insurance from an outside company. AMOpportunities can provide options for these graduates.
The cost of the whole program pays off with your clinical experience. Based on your performance, your host physician will offer you a letter of recommendation. Aside from enriching your education, your clinical experience with AMOpportunities helps you build the qualifications needed to apply for jobs back home or return to the United States for a residency program.
