TRC uniquely offers clerkships in the USA for its medical students to gain vital clinical experience under the supervision of top US medical consultants. This not only gives medical students the opportunity to gain practical medical experience and observation but also builds recommendations and references on students’ CVs to help them find future employment or to continue their studies. The clerkships are ideal for students whose ultimate goal is to practise in the USA as they will be ahead in terms of CV quality and therefore more likely to secure a fellowship at a US teaching hospital.
