Details & Conditions:

Available for Clinical Block products with a minimum 4-week enrollment.  Non-Clinical Block Products & Services such as document drafting, consultations, memberships, etc. are excluded. Pay for each upcoming clinical block-by-clinical block, so long as the payment for that clinical block is made by no later than 14 days prior to the minimum number of days required for processing. So if the minimum processing time for a particular clinical block is 7 days, payment will be due 21 days (3 weeks) prior to estimated start date; if minimum processing time is 84 days (12 weeks), payment will be due 98 days (14 weeks) prior to estimated start date. The benefits of this option is that your start date at this (or comparable clinical site) will be reserved for you alone. To qualify for this Option Five, a 25% deposit + all payment plan fees + 100% of non-clinical products/services must be paid at the time of initial enrollment. Excluded Clinical Blocks: FASTart1 Clinical Blocks, For-Credit Clinical Blocks, and Controlled Clinical Sites (e.g. Program Director (PD), Inpatient (IP), Hospitalist (HOSP), Verified (V), Subinternship (SI), Postgraduate Subinternship (PGSI)).

Scenarios #1: Requiring a Letter of Enrollment: Members requiring supporting documents evidencing tentative enrollment into ACMedical and specific clinical sites are considered “Conditionally Enrolled”. We will help you select the Clinical Sites which will best suit your situation, and established two dates up-front: 1) Initial Enrollment Date (1st payment of Membership fee + $1000 deposit*** + all applicable courier service fees), and 2) Balance Due Date (typically 7 days after an official decision making date i.e. visa interview, or meeting with a school official). A ‘Conditional Letter of Enrollment’ is typically generated within 30 days of Initial Enrollment Date. A ‘Full Letter of Enrollment’ is issued if already Fully Enrolled Credentialed (FEC) with ACMedical. To avoid late fees and preserve the integrity of selected clinical blocks, any balances owed must be paid on/before Balance Due Date. Fee for Scenario #1: 10%.

Scenario #2: Price protection against rapidly increasing Clinical Site fees on limited availability clinical features such as VERIFIED: International medical students typically sign up to complete their entire final year clerkships up to 2 years ahead of time with ACMedical mainly for 3 reasons: 1) Locking in clinical selections without having to worry about fee hikes (i.e. since June 2018, the weekly fees of nearly 50% of clinical sites have increased by 100% or more mainly due to U.S. medical schools now paying up for clerkships), and 2) Financial incentives offered by ACMedical, and 3) Compliance with certain U.S. medical residency requirements & hard-set timelines (i.e. having 4 strong and recent U.S. Letters of Recommendation from 4 to 6 months of recent U.S. clinical clerkships uploaded and approved by ERAS/ECFMG by no later than ERAS certification date). ACMedical Consultants will help you select the Clinical Sites which will best suit your situation, and established two dates up-front: 1) Initial Enrollment Date (1st payment of Membership + 10% of total invoice amount), and 2) Balance Due Date (depends on your specific payment plan arrangement). Fee for Scenario #1: 10%.

Payment Plan Fee:

Variable

* A fee of $39/month will be assessed for all late payments. Please speak with your Enrollment Consultant for a customized payment structure if you enroll less than 35 days before the start date of Clinical Block 1. Please review our Terms of Use for General Policies for Changes & Cancellations.
