Non-Degree Seeking Programs for Clinical Experience
The externship programs available from our medical university are non-degree seeking programs specifically designed to benefit International/Foreign Medical Graduates (FMGs) seeking clinical experience in the United States as a prerequisite for residency appointments. Atlantic University School of Medicine understands that many residency programs desire FMGs to ideally possess some United States clinical experience in order to be considered for postgraduate training. That is why we have decided to offer our six-month and twelve-month externship programs.
The specialized clinical training program provided by our university is very beneficial for FMGs applying to residency programs in the United States. Our program provides these students with adequate clinical experience and helps to gain an overview of the United States health care system. Externs carry the same responsibility as first-year residents and are able to gain important hands-on experience. It should be noted that his program is not an observer-ship. It is a hands-on externship program.
