Hey, do you guys know if it is possible for a U.S. citizen to do their medical rotations/clerkships overseas with European-licensed doctors?

Being an IMG, having a nervous feeling for interviews are already stressing as it is. To have the chance to correct any mistakes that could be endangering my opportunities​ for residency is a valuable asset. Thank you Dr. Mirzani and Tim Z. for your guidance and expertise. I believe to gain a residency spot because of your program.

States not requiring any ACGME or AOA accredited verification for your clinical clerkships:


(UPDATED 8/22/2017: for licensure purposes, NJ no longer requires clerkships to have been conducted in the same specialty ACGME accredited teaching facility, however we have not seen anything contrary to the information below with regards to NJ policies when it comes to which non-US medical school student's abilities to conduct for-credit clerkships in NJ)

Non-US medical students looking to conduct clerkships in NJ: ONLY SGU, AUC and UAG have been known to be grandfathered into NJ Medical Board for having approved clinical program in NJ for their students.

According to: http://www.njconsumeraffairs.gov/bme/applications/application-for-licensure-by-the-state-board-of-medical-examiners-of-new-jersey.pdf (brief summary):

NJ medical board must pre-approve any non-US medical school and their clinical program and the student, which I have not seen get done in the past 15 years. Additionally NJ Medical Board has additional requirements such as passing Step 1 by the student, and the student must show proof that they've completed at least 6 core specialties, and an application fee of $10000, among other requirements. There are 3 schools grandfathered in (SGU, UAG and AUC), so I have not heard of fatima having their clinical program approved by NJ Medical Board.

what visa/immigration status is needed to do clinical rotations (medical student- no USMLE yet) in the US ?

hi there, i am Dr. Adleena Asna, indian origin. i have done my mbbs from yerevan state medical university, armenia. i need to have some guidance regarding clerkship. i have been graduated in 2013, but i am doing my internship in my home country at persent. my question is, can i drop my internship and go for clerkship? or electives are equivalent? please guide me...

Hi Dr. Mizani.

The state of Nevada required a "limited" or "initial licensure" if you get a residency in that state. Do you know, for restricted licensure, if they require for Caribbean grads,  all your clerkships be at ACGME hospitals or just any hospital in the US.

Also, Do you know if they have any issues if you had a gap in your medical school between basic science and clerkships. I have a year gap in between because I was studying for USMLE.

Can you please provide the website or any other source where I can find this information.

Thank you.
