Types of Clinical Rotations

Depending on your educational background and needs, you can choose from two different types of rotations based on the amount of patient interaction.

Observership

Observerships involve shadowing your supervising physician while they treat and care for patients, while participating in active case presentation and practice differential diagnosis. These are typically for early year medical students and graduates.

Hands-On Rotation

Hands-on rotations involve non-invasive patient interaction such as taking histories, vitals, presenting cases and differential diagnosis in compliance with patient privacy guidelines. Hands-On rotations involve patient based activities in the clinic, often paired with Hospital Grand Round Observation. These are typically for clinical year medical students who may be eligible for elective credit.

Letters of Recommendation

Our partnered physicians offer letters of recommendation based on performance. Physicians have full discretion over the content and letterhead. US residency program directors generally look for a physician's academic affiliations and the clinical sites you have attended rather than letterhead. A great letter of recommendation can be the deciding factor in a residency match application, and can help support USMLE scores to push you to the next level of programs.

We look forward to receiving your application and helping you the entire way. Sign up to search, apply, and attend our US Clinical Rotations.
