AmeriClerkships Medical Society (AMS) was established on March 12, 2007, to help U.S. medical educators meet the challenges of improving resident preparation and selection process. In our view, this begins with access to a network of U.S. physicians and teaching hospitals, determined to see physicians of all nationalities succeed. AMS is also the intellectual property owner of the ‘World’s Largest Online Booking Platform for U.S. Internships, Externships & Clerkships‘, known as MyClinicals. This live online system enables prospective physicians to choose to be mentored by any of AMS’ 800+ affiliated U.S. physicians.
Today, AMS and MyClinicals is a powerful extant professional network that streamlines and accelerates physician career development in the United States. Behind the scenes, AMS is supported by an incredibly gifted team that prides itself on accountability, transparency and tracking their members’ residency-placement outcomes.
