Question Clinical experience OUTSIDE the U.S for an IMG

Hello all...
I have a question..

It's known that Clinical experience INSIDE the U.S is helpful for an IMG, but what about Clinical experience OUTSIDE the U.S?

Is having a certificate of clinical experience OUTSIDE the U.S helpful when applying for matching for an IMG?

I would really appreciate all your answers.
Thanks in advance

yes it's still very helpful, any clinical or anything that keeps you in touch w/ medicine is of great help (research, med asst, physician asst, moonlyting, etc).

but i do have to stress that USCE has heavier weight, but still outside CE is still good. go for it. its probably better than spending thousands on a rotation.

just my opinion. hope this helps.
