By Nikita Anand Apr 23, Very good help for observerships. Has many resources to contact and get positions. Some are almost free and some are somewhat expensive. The problem was with scheduling some of them to match my elective and vacation period of my residency, I should have contacted them earlier I guess. Anyway, this is a good collection to start with, thank you. By Mehrdad Mahmoud Apr 17, After all this waiting and applying with no much insight I finally got this book and here we go.

Got couple of electives in general surgery for the next year before I graduate. This book is a must to get into elective programs for IMGs. By Rasha Nouri Apr 10, This book was essential to me to get my desired specialty externship. Kudos to the authors for this rare collection in this tight world of opportunities for IMGs.

Really after a long struggling contacting hospitals, this book made it easier than I was expected but still took some time again but finally I did it. I managed getting an orthopedics and general surgery observerships in a University program that has decent number of IMGs.

I think the ortho observership was more difficult to get but you can get it with contacting the correct people in the programs. Send out as much as emails to those programs mentioned in this list especially those that say they host multiple specialties for clerkship and observerships. Its simple and direct forward to contact the programs.

Waited couple of weeks to confirm my spot and got it for next June. Hopefully I will get letters for the match on time. I wish I knew about it before. Faliure to comply with these basic requirements can result is rejection of elective application.

This is ofcourse just the main summary, however there's more to Dean's letter than just that. It should state your expected date of graduation.

1. University of South Alabama College of Medicine

General comments about your personality or conduct are also mandatory and it should convey that you are a student in good standing. There should be a clear statement stating that you are approved to undertake the elective course for accademic credit. If you are applying in New York State, then you probably will also be applying for New York Eligibility letter see below whose requirement is that your dean's letter should also specify the duration of your elective period and the institute's name in NY where you will be doing your elective.

For non-immigrant visa application at the US Embassy in your home country, if you intend to also use your Dean's letter as proof that you will be coming back to your home country after completing your electives, then it can be useful if there is a mention in the Dean's letter that you are expected to return after completion of your elective course and that you will have to take your Final year exam inorder to graduate.

It adds an unecessary bulk to your overall application expenditure, has the potential to delay your application considerably, and depending on whether or not you are able to obtain it, it can even shorten your list of institutes to where you are interested in applying and I hate it!

Types of US Clinical Experience

Practically, when I asked related questions to senior residents on my rotations, majory of them replied by saying that ' firstly there is HARDLY anything that a medical student can do wrong because of controlled supervison, and secondly the patients are not stupid! They will Sue the attending instead of a medical student, so that they can make more money that way. Dont think of it interms of the amount that you will have to pay to download this insurance.

The Company you download it from should provide such coverage in USA. This also indirectly means that the company should be US based. I personally believe malpractice insurance is a BIG monoply on part of Insurance companies to make easy money.

USA medical electives

They are fully aware of the fact from their experience that students hardly will ever need their help, but they know that its like a compulsory requirement to acquire one on part of the student- and that there is no other way round. They exploit the fact that most international medical schools do not cover malpractice insurance for their students and so charge huge money which is BAD. The tragedy is that except for a few, no institute wants to bother about the fact that paying for malpractice insurance substantially hurts the pocket of international students for no good reason, which is sad and disappointing.

Unlike malpractice insurance which is required by some, almost every Institute requires you to provide proof of Health Insurance coverage at the time you submit your application. Cost varies with increasing age. It may cost you cheaper if you download it from a local company at your home country. There are two ways to satisfy this requirement.

The former method has more weightage, but the latter option is an acceptable alternative. It is a state requirement that you should obtain permission from the New York State education department in shape of obtaining NY Eligibility letter if you wanna do an elective at any institute in NY state. You cannot apply for the New York eligibility letter if you do not already have an acceptance from the institute that you are interested in applying.

This is because you need to submit the "institute's approval letter" along with the New York eligibility letter request form for the issuance of New York Eligibility letter. The NY state education department then verifys that whatever you are saying is accurate, verify's your medical school and then issues you an NY eligibility letter which you then submit to the institute that accepted you making your elective participation legal.

No institute in NY will allow you to undertake an elective course even if they previously accepted your applicaiton if you do not submit them a NY eligibility letter.

The following are the requirements that need to be fullfilled inorder to apply for an NY eligibility letter. If you want to do clerkships in US for more than 12 weeks, then you need to have taken USMLE step 1 or equvilant like Complex 1 , the rest of the process is similar.

Other forms of USCE like observerships are not subjected to this rule. This requirement is usually difficult to satisfy if you already do not know any of that institute's staff member in the department of your desired rotation.

But if you are one of those fortunate people who is lucky enough to have recieved a faculty member's supportive response, then you should definitely connsider pursuing your elective application at that institute. I advocate in favor of this because if you are able to fullfil other requirements for that place, then its a Definite acceptance, compared to other places where you have applied with lesser probability of acceptance.

One way of searching for a faculty member sponsor is by strolling through the website of these institutes and then searching for the faculty names in individual departments. You can start from analysing the e-mail address of the elective coordinator and then 'calculate' the formula for making an e-mail out of a given name for that particular institute. After that you search for the faculty names, 'make' their e-mail from their name using that formula and then send them e-mails.

No pains no gains! Always remember, US doctors highly respect hardworking, honest and enthusiastic people who are passionate to learn in the specialty of interest. Who knows, when your star shines, and someone is able to see the light in you and is able to recognize your abilities, where all it costs you is some additional effort and a nicely written e-mail.

My advise: Always avail your opportunities and never run away from hardwork, and its your commitment to your work that will make you stand distinctively out of a pool of thousand others.To file a notice of infringement with us, you must provide us with the items specified below.

If your score is in the range of to , your performance is on par with the average first-time examinee from an accredited medical school program in the United States.

GME programs be able to evaluate my 3-digit score? Cost varies with increasing age. The 2-digit score is neither of these things. He will be doing the majority of the hospital admissions, rounding with the social workers and discussing with the case managers patient-related issues. Some institutes like SUNY Downstate will supply you with their own letter of recommendation 'form' that you need to have your faculty complete and enclose it into a sealed confidential envelope, which you can then submit along with your application.

The PGY-3 resident will have more electives but also will have more responsibilities in certain rotations like the ICU, CCU and as an in-house resident where he will be doing admissions and running the codes in the hospital.
