AMOpportunities makes the process of finding U.S. clinical experiences easy by offering guaranteed seating through our partnerships with top U.S. hospitals and physicians.
AMO has already done the work of finding availability in programs that value the role of IMGs in the U.S. healthcare system, which means all you need to do is find the clinical experiences that work best for you, including medical electives, observerships, clerkships, virtual rotations, and externships.
Year after year, Match data shows that IMGs match at a rate significantly disproportionate to non-IMGs. Beyond gaining real-world experience with the U.S. healthcare system, USCE helps qualify you for more residency programs while helping you stand out on those applications. It can also help you with the USMLE.
AMO offers more than 250 hands-on, observership, and virtual clinical experiences that have helped past IMGs match into U.S. residency programs. Check out some of our top rotations:
IM/Infectious Disease with Assistant Professor, Georgetown University
Family Medicine at Florida International University, Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine
Internal Medicine Ward at the University of Miami, International Medicine Institute

Hands-on activities take place in the outpatient/clinic setting. Inpatient/hospital exposure is typically observation only. To be eligible for a hands-on rotation, graduates must have a passing USMLE Step 1 score.

"My hands-on rotation with Dr. F and his team has made me a more competent doctor. For me, the end result was improved interpersonal skills, professionalism, and practice-based learning. Due to my involvement in this program and the mentorship I received, I find myself with many significant new clinical skills. I’m forever grateful for this experience and recommend it highly."
