We are thrilled to announce AMOpportunities is now offering clinical experiences at Florida International University! This partnership creates a fast lane for AMO visitors by offering rotation spots for international medical trainees at one of the U.S.’ top residency sites and teaching hospitals.
Founded in 1965, FIU has become synonymous with prestige, specifically in healthcare. The university is also known for its large and diverse student body. No wonder they’re partnering with AMO to support the continuing education of international medical students and graduates!
As stated above, through this partnership, rotations are open to AMO trainees. Typically, a medical student or graduate would apply to an FIU rotation by reaching out the site individually, competing with thousands of other medical students doing the same.
With AMO, you stand out from the crowd. These programs – 13 medical specialties and subspecialties – are suitable for both medical students and graduates.
Continue reading below for a look at the FIU program details and a complete list of the medical specialties offered through FIU.
FIU programs are all located at a residency site, which gives trainees the opportunity to learn alongside residents. This makes FIU programs a great option for those considering U.S. residency, as it gives you the chance not to just learn about medicine, but to ask questions about the Match application process and life as a resident.
All available FIU sites provide hospital exposure. While some are exclusively in a hospital setting, other programs will offer both hospital and outpatient clinical experience. A program’s page will have more details about which experience types the program will include.
Those who rotate with FIU may also request a letter of recommendation from their supervising physician. Given FIU’s status as a residency site and its reputation as an academic hospital, an LoR from an FIU preceptor makes a strong addition to a Match application.
FIU Clinical Experiences
All 13 FIU clinical experiences are offered as hands-on and observerships, with the exception of medical graduates who are able to rotate in observerships.
The exposure type and spots offered will vary by specialty. These details and additional program information can be found on each specialty’s program page. Click on the specialties below for more information about each program:
