Your Path to Practicing Medicine In the United States

Improve your chance at matching in US Residency with a high-quality, hands-on clinical rotation in one of 10 specialties, available virtually and in-person at our three state-of-the-art locations in the Washington, DC area.

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.
