AIMU Clinical Experience in Washington DC, USA
Dr. Amjad M Rasul, MD is a good cardiologist in providence hospital, Washington DC and I did my clinical rotation with him, I had a great experience and learned a lot. I had plenty of opportunities to practice taking histories or performing the physical exam, doing EKG, Echo cardiography, stress test and all cardiac procedure. I became very comfortable talking with patients and enjoyed seeing what I was learning in class being used in a clinical setting. He took me to attend medical conference, CME and morning report sessions. Dr. Rasul is an excellent teacher. He challenged me to answer questions confidently, find the answer to clinical questions. Dr. Rasul has a lot of textbooks in his office, and students look up the conditions we see that day, and he will explain everything and clear the doubts. Dr. Rasul was a great mentor that was always encouraging and challenged me to learn more every day.
Clinical Rotations in Chicago USA
I was given the opportunity to do 8 weeks of Surgery rotation at Community First Medical Centre in Chicago. I thoroughly enjoyed the rotation given the fact that I was able to rotate in four different specialities namely General Surgery, Urology, Orthopaedics and Gynaecology unlike in any other hospitals. I am grateful to the respective doctors for taking time to make sure the students became well versed in principles of their respective specializations. Here, students are allowed to scrub in to assist with the surgeries which are highly educative, improve our patient doctor relationship by working in outpatient clinics as well.
Personally, I enjoyed the 8 weeks so much that I didn’t realise how fast time had flown by. I would recommend this hospital for Surgery rotations. The staff at the hospital were friendly and supportive and helped me to get through the rotation. I am also extremely grateful to Dr. Fadi Habib for being the awesome doctor he is and helping us to rotate according to our interests.
Clinical Rotations in Baltimore, MD, USA
The OB/GYN Clinical Rotation with Dr. Hovik Taymoorian at Harbor Hospital, Baltimore, MD was one of the most educationally rewarding experience during my medical school matriculation. I learned not only the relevant clinical/surgical technique but was lectured about the connections with basic sciences which is crucial for success on the USMLE Step 2 CK. I was previously in rotations at MUA and I can confidently say that this experience overshadows any clinical clerkship that was offered to me there. Dr. Taymoorian cares very much for his students and connects with them on a personal level as well. I was participating (scrubbed-in) during laparoscopic hysterectomies, cystectomies, vulvectomies, C-sections as well as vaginal deliveries. In addition we spent time at Dr. T’s OB/Gyn clinical practice performing annual visits, OB visits, general gynecological visits and performing ultrasounds. I would recommend this rotation very much to bright and highly motivated students. Thank you again!!
AIMU Clinical in University of West Indies
As the popular saying goes a journey of a thousand miles begins with a step, well I took my step into medical school when my school AIMU granted me admission .it was an exciting feeling and at same time saddening as I knew it was time for me to leave my family and country. I arrived at the beautiful island of Saint Lucia on early Friday morning and I was welcomed by one of the staff and the school bus driver at the airport. They took me to the school where I was registered and was also given snacks which I was happy for because I have been starving since my 3 day trip. Accommodation was quickly provided for me and I was helped by my new roommate who took me to the mall and also showed me how to take the local bus. I would say that I was warmly welcomed, as the saying goes first impression is long lasting, my first day at AIMU will not be forgotten.
Classes resumed and I was nervous as I didn’t know if I would be able to understand what is being taught and if the lecturers are friendly and if they are ready to clear my doubts about any course, well I got more than I expected, the lecturers were professional and also friendly. They were always ready to answer questions and even arrange tutorial if don’t understand any topic during class.
I would end by saying that my basic sciences at AIMU has adequately equipped me to face this hurdle which I would overcome in few months and become a doctor I have always dreamt to be.

AIMU Clinical Experience in USA
“I was given the wonderful opportunity to do a 4 week rotation in the Anesthesia department at Providence Hospital, early 2017. My experience has been disciplining and a knowledge gaining one. The diversity of patients as well as cases allowed me to broaden my horizons and view different specialties in action in the OR such as General Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, OB/GYN and so on. The teaching staff is extremely informative and provides plenty of opportunities to the students to acquire hands on experience in administration of drugs, bag-masking and intubation. I would highly recommend this rotation to a medical student.”
AIMU Clinical in UWI (University of West Indies)
Since UWI is a teaching Hospital, They have ward rounds with the Consultants, in which the participants include junior and senior medical students, Interns and residents. The consultant will ask questions in the ward rounds and they teach us as well, which is really amazing. Here we have our actual patient in front of us and we are learning .And we also have different sessions with our consultants, Residents and Interns. We also have classes in between on different topics which are always thought by consultant or senior resident which is actually helpful. And of course the students from UWI are very friendly .So I am enjoying my time out here.

My name is Sunny Shah. I am a 3rd year medical resident at McGill University in Internal Medicine, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I have been given a wonderful opportunity to practice medicine in such a beautiful city with amazing faculty, residents and students. My journey was long and arduous. I want to thank AIMU especially as they are the driving force behind me obtaining a residency position. They provided me with the tools to succeed and made sure my application was well done prior to interviews. They have a great track record with students becoming residents. It was a pleasure to spend my time at this wonderful university and become prepared for my next step.
