At AMOpportunities we work to connect international medical students with U.S. clinical experiences. These experiences can provide insight into the U.S. healthcare system. We receive a lot of feedback from students who express that their clinical experience was just as enjoyable as it was educational.
Recently, we caught up with Miguel, a medical student from the Philipines, who completed two clinical experiences with AMO during May and September of 2018. While both his clinical experiences were in the specialty of Orthopedic Surgery, they had very different locations. One was in Chicago, Illinois and the other in Fresh Meadows, New York.
Here’s what Miguel had to say about his clinical experiences with AMO:
What inspired you to do a rotation through AMOpportunities?
Miguel: I decided I needed to obtain clinical experience in the U.S. in order to increase my chances of getting matched in my specialization of choice when it came time to apply for residency.
What did you think about your rotation and clinical experience?
Miguel: It exceeded my expectations.
What would you say to other international medical students and graduates thinking about working with AMOpportunities?
Miguel: To be honest, I already recommended AMO to some of my colleagues. A few of them have already registered!
How do you think this experience will help you with your career and further studies?
Miguel: The experience increased my skills and understanding of the subject matters at hand. It also made me more adept in picking up and learning all that there is to know in the field of medicine.
Any thing else you would like to add?
Miguel: AMOpportunities has been perfect and a blessing to international medical students in need of clinical experiences, like me.
