Question Clinical Clerkships Question in ECFMG Registration

Hi everyone,

I was filling my application for step 1 & there I found that I have to mention clinical clerkships that I did during my study. now I was just wondering that 1- how many do i have to mention?
2- in addition to that, I did clinical rotations in medicine & surgery in all 3 yrs, so do i have to mention them separately or i just mention the final yr rotations?
3- does this have any impact on my step 2 application, & later on when i apply for residency, (i mean which subjects i did my clerkships in, & for how long?)

everyone plz help with your comments & expertise.

thanks

Default Clincal Clerckships

Hi Friend,

Clinical clerckship is all about your PRE-graduation intership needed by your medical school in order to complete your graduation.
For my medical school it was the final year courses we intended to complete about 3 months for each of the major medical branches.i mentioned this in my application.
But i do not know if it affect the step 2 application or not!!!!
Hope thid information will help you.

Good Luck,

Stop You don't need to mention

You don't need to mention anything that is mentioned in your medical school transcript.
That clerkships question is reserved for rotations that you've done out of school and out of curriculum.

I actually called them about that because I did A LOT of stuff but it's a while ago and they expect you to put in exact dates, supervisor names etc.
ECFMG told me that this part is optional and has absolutely no effect on anything so I just skipped it and left it blank.
