Does any one know how to get one year of hands on clinical experience in US?
Many programs have that as a requirement.

Any input would be highly appreciated !

Thank you

I know Trillium medical education consultants offers long clerkships for IMGs. Some Caribbean schools also offer this, but it's very expensive.

Programs that have such a requirement are usually not IMG friendly and its extrmeley difficult to get into these programs. You have one year USCE if you have done a transitional year or pgy 1 prelim internal medicine year. I don't know anyone out of residency who did one year of electives by themselves
