Fine all in all.
It was pretty fantastic! Dr. **** faculty are very friendly for IMG. And also he seems like enjoy teaching for us. Lesson learned a lot, now Dr. **** is my role model as a Pediatrician in the US. It is said imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. So I even try to become a vegetarian!
AMO is a brilliant program for international students like me who struggle to find their way through electives and observerships. It gave me a chance to learn at an amazing place among wonderful people. Dr****, the paediatrician I worked with was highly dedicated, kept me informed about each and every case and how to treat them and also asked me questions through out the day which is a great way for a student to learn something! I loved it!
Fast and super helpful, reminding me what information left I needed and helping me even though I didn't do it on time.
It was an awesome experience with great knowledge from the doctors, learned a lot there and I hope I can come back soon.
Very good! Except for the email!
Great but not 100% professional because I didn't get the whole idea and details
I think it was a great experience, helped me become more fluid in everyday english conversation, made good friends, learned a lot from dr ****
I had a great experience with AMO! I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to have clinical exposure in the states.
It was a wonderful experience.
