When you are doing some rotations in the US as a medical student (ie, you have not yet graduated), the US clinical experience is called clerkship or electives. Most US medical schools offer to foreign medical students electives but clerkship (except that you are US citizen or your school has an affiliation with a US med school). Externship (ie, you have clinical contact with pts) and observership (ie, no clincal contact) can be done when you have graduated from med school and you are officially a medical graduate. In order to get electives, you need to have step1, Letter of recommendation from the Dean or the Head of the Department, academic transcript... Specific requirement is usually written on the homepage of the medical school and whether they accept foreign students or not.
