Meet Our Team

AmeriClerkships Medical Society (ACMedical) 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. ACMedical 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 ACMedical’s 700+ affiliated U.S. physicians, but to be a true medical society, we needed to get the same Members who utilize our services, into the operations of our organization. As such in 2021, ACMedical launched the first of its kind non-clinical, highly competitive 12-month Internship, where 6 highly qualified medical graduates join our team to help improve and grow ACMedical from a Member’s perspective, serving as employees, stakeholders, and soon to be Members of ACMedical within 12 months.  

Today, ACMedical and MyClinicals together are a powerful professional physician network that streamline and accelerate physician career development in the United States. Behind the scenes, ACMedical is supported by an incredibly gifted team that prides itself on accountability, transparency and tracking their members’ residency-placement outcomes.

Meet the ACMedical Internship Team
2021/2022 Cycle

We are extremely proud to launch the ACMedical Internship program, with our inaugural team of 6 incredible Interns for the 2021/2022 cycle. ACMedical Interns are medical graduates who have elected to accept a gap year from applying to U.S. medical residency, in return for the opportunity to work with ACMedical leadership team, members, as well as affiliated clinical sites, physicians, hospitals and residency programs, solving real-world residency entry and completion challenges. Through this intense process, ACMedical Interns will learn the challenges faced and solutions offered by ACMedical to all parties involved.
