Welcome to the website of USA Clerkship / Externship.

We are pleased to take this opportunity to briefly introduce USA Clerkships, so that you may consider partnering with us to provide US clinical core and elective rotations for your clerkship or externship rotation. 

Our goal is to provide US clinical core and elective rotation opportunities that are focused on your critical thinking and learning experience, combining state-of-the-art medical facilities, diverse patient population and exceptional board-certified medical specialists. We assure you that each and every single one of our physicians are true leaders in their own fields and devoted to passing on their knowledge to the next generation.

Our program is primarily based in the Metropolitan Chicago area. We have placement in both private and university hospitals depending on availability of hospitals and physicians. Our hospitals are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). All our rotations are hands-on experience. The LOR will depend on your performance with that particular physician.

We would like to make your learning and educational process as effortless and seamless as possible, as fun and enjoyable as it can be, and as memorable and lasting as it could be.

We would like to see you transform from a medical student/extern to a very successful leading edge practicing and/or researching physician.
