The Importance of Clinical Placements

What are clinical placements? It’s an arrangement that provides a medical student with the opportunity to work within a healthcare environment or one that provides related services to the public or private patients.

Med school students in placements are actively involved with caring for patients or they actively observe the social and healthcare processes. Placements take place in various healthcare settings, including the following:

  • Primary
  • Secondary
  • Community
  • Social

Clinical rotations and work experience go hand-and-hand for people studying to become doctors. But landing them is not always easy.

“My biggest problem was understanding the questions and psychiatry.  Dr.Untara helped me how to tackle questions, time management, and understanding of this whole exam.  She guided me through the entire process until the day before my exam.  Her useful tips got me through my exam day.  Her thorough review helped me a lot to recall things during my test.  With her help, I successfully passed step 1.”

“Excellent, well thought out and well designed. This is a MUST-HAVE review program for anyone aspiring for USMLE.  Being a part of this program was most definitely a breath of fresh air.  It was not only the best prep program I have ever attended, but was also incredibly helpful in expanding my intellect.  What makes this program so unique and special is its personalized and structured approach, which let me explore my weaknesses and strengthen the same.  The instructors (Dr. Untara and Dr. Owen) were very patient and encouraging throughout, making it an incredible learning experience. Looking forward to coming back for my Step 2 classes. “
