About Us

Our Story

“In 2012, Dr. Peter Gabor Bernad, M.D., M.P.H., FACP recognized a need in the increasing numbers of International Medical Graduates (IMGs) seeking to match in residency in the United States. An IMG himself and a practicing neurologist and clinical fellow in neurology at George Washington University, Dr. Bernad created AMIQT to share his knowledge and love of medicine with the next generation of doctors.”

What We Do

AMIQT (American Medical International Quality Training) offers month-long rotations and externships for International Medical Graduates (IMGs) and current medical students. At our three locations in the DC metro area, students receive high-quality, hands-on clinical experience. Students learn American medicine, while establishing professional and personal bonds with experienced physicians and each other.

We offer assistance with personal statements, housing, English language training, letters of recommendation, and anything else we can to improve your chances of matching in US residency.
