Question IMG Med Student doing Core Rotations in US!

Hello,

I am in my fifth semester of MBBS. I want to do my clinical rotations (core + electives) in US. My rotations are gonna start in 7th semester.

How can i apply? Prerequisites? Which hospital is the best and names of hospitals allowing international students to apply?

Thanks.

Can you even do that? Choose to do ur core rotations in college in the US instead? How did your university allow you to do that?

You talk your dean and he will accept on the core rotations you want to do in the States then you apply to the various universities and see who can accept you in your desired time.

You can do rotations in the US hospitals which are affiliated with your college. Get more info from your school.

I don't think that you can do your core clerkships in US.
Only final year electives. Even if your university has any affiliation with US universities.
If you go through the prerequisites of a visiting medical student electives in US, it clearly states that applicants must be in their final year in med school, done with core clerkships. (similar to 4th year US med students).
