You are not required to have ACLS certification before starting residency, all programs will take youo for ACLS certification during the orientation period and they'll pay for it.

step taker need sum more advice. so i will have one month free before applying, and currently im doing an observership in a teaching hospital which provides residency to IMGs. but my observership is in the cardiology department and not per say strictly internal medicine, which i want to apply too. Should i continue my observership and make it for 2 mths till end of august or get a paid externship in a private clinic for a month. as for the LOR, hopefully i will get it and that too from the cheif of cardiology in the hospital. what would u suggest. thank you!

Continue with the cardiology observership.

Cardiology is part of Internal Medicine.
