Default Productice/useful jobs for an IMG-US resident?

Im not sure if this topic has already been visited on the boards but I'd like to know what jobs are available to a Foreign MBBS Grad who is a USA resident.

More specifically paying jobs, that would look good on our CV's when we finally get done with our Steps and head into Matches/Interviews.

I know of Research jobs but they usually dont pay.

Im aware of:

-Physicians Assistant
-Medical Technician
-Lab Technician
-Pharmacy Technician
...but the problem with these are that they require some sort of schooling/courses/accreditation to apply for.

I know of Medical Assistant but am unsure if it really looks good on your CV or is worth it.

Any others that i am missing? Any unique or outside-the-box jobs/opportunities?

I know theres a lot of ppl in my position whom this post would benefit. Lets try Compiling a list and description of the job title. Thanks

Great topic.

You will be happy to learn that Advanced Colleges of America has been helping medical students and graduates with this issue for some time.

"According to the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), assimilation and acculturation have been named as the most challenging barriers to the practice of medicine by international medical graduates (and arguably returning USMG) in the United States. Utilizing Advanced Medical Assisting as its base, ACA’s AMA – MRT is designed to provide pre-residency candidates with extensive didactics, acculturation and multidisciplinary U.S. hands-on practical clinical experience that is highly prized by U.S. medical residency admission committee members.

Learn more about ACAs AMA-MRT program by visiting our website or contact an ACA representative.

Best - Victor
