Electives, Clerkships, & Externships
Elective & Clerkships:
Medical students who are looking for a hands on experience, seeking elective credit for their respective medical schools (subject to your clinical deans approval), students looking to hone their patient interaction and English proficiency skills for an upcoming USMLE Step 2 Clinical Skills Exam, and those looking to gain Letters of Recommendation in anticipation for applying to the upcoming residency match cycle.
International Medical graduates looking to fulfill the “United States Clinical Experience” (USCE) requirements as necessitated by several residency programs. Externships also provide doctors of international countries the opportunity for acclimatization with the US healthcare system. Doctors looking to familiarize themselves with Electronic Medical Records, Electronic Healthcare Record services, Medical Billing and Coding procedures, Insurance claims, and review of malpractice cases. Externships are also a good way to have RECENT exposure to clinical patient care as many international applicants have been out of touch with patient care for many years prior.
