In the U.S., your candidacy for residency is greatly affected if there is a gap of time in your clinical experience, or a lack of experience with the U.S. healthcare system. Many IMGs and FMGs who plan to pursue their medical career in the US should be aware of the differences between healthcare practice standards abroad versus requirements in the US.

In order to be truly competitive in your residency quest, obtaining 3-6 months of continuous hands-on experience at U.S. clinics and hospitals is essential. Our Externships program provides you with the opportunity to expand your experience and knowledge to stand out on your residency application.
