Question No US Clinical Experience

Hi guys , I need to ask you about myself.

I couldn't do an elective course in the USA because I was in the process of getting a green card . Will NOT having a USCE affect my application ?

Thanks in advance

Every year there are thousands of IMG applicants (usually above 10,000). A good percentage of these have USCE and US LoRs.

You will be compared to them when you apply.

Program directors will love to see some sort of US experience and they will definitely pick those who have it and leave those who do not have it.

Now, having said that, it does not mean you don't have a chance if you don't have USCE, but your chances are hugely impacted by the lack of it.

Thank you so much .

I am really afraid that not having US Clinical experience will affect me.

What if I talked to a Dr. in a private clinic and asked him if I do observership or hands on experience with him , is this counted as USCE ?
