With the new year underway, we take a moment to look back on last year in our 2022 Year-in-Review! Last year, a record number of trainees rotated with AMOpportunities and we worked with more schools to expand clinical training opportunities to their students.

In 2022, there was also a return to interest in traveling. Last year, trainees booked more in-person rotations in 2022 than there were combined in-person and virtual rotation bookings in 2021.

Check out some of last year’s trainee statistics below, and find the full breakdown in our 2022 Year-In-Review.
