If you’ve been browsing for your clinical experience the last few weeks, you may have noticed that we recently launched a new feature. Now when you apply to U.S. clinical experiences, you have the option to “link” multiple experiences into an itinerary. For programs that are on your itinerary, you will be able to apply and pay for simultaneously. Itinerary also centralizes your applications, so when you upload a document, it is applied to all programs on your itnerary. However, there are many more benefits to using itinerary that can help you as you prepare to travel for your U.S. clincal experience.

Add Some Adventure to Your Medical Education
Travel to the U.S. is back, which makes getting hands-on U.S. clinical experience easier. However it is also an opportunity to see the world and experience new cultures.
However, booking a trip to the U.S. doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice making progress on your medical education. Using the itinerary feature makes it easier to fit trips around your clinical experience schedule or to squeeze clinical experiences in as pit stops on your U.S. trip.
Additionally, with multiple programs located in many large cities, multiple USCEs can give you the experience of “living” in your favorite U.S. city for an extended period. Using the itinerary feature to book your clinical experiences in advance helps show you where each clinical experience is located around the city so you can pick the perfect housing option.
Traveling for any reason comes with a lot of moving parts to keep organized. When traveling for clinical experience, it’s not just flight times, lodging check-ins and check-outs, or train departures. You will also have to keep track of start dates and reporting times for your clincial experiences.
Whether you’re booking your clinical experiences back-to-back or spreading them throughout the year, Itinerary helps you organize your clinical experiences. As you build your itinerary by adding programs, your clinical experiences will be organized in chronological order. This makes it easier to visualize where you need to be and when. This can help planning getting to and from clinical sites, scheduling housing, and gives you a detailed plan to provide preceptors should any delays arise.
