Hospital Externship In a Private Clinic?

"Does an externship in a Private Medical Facility(in the USA) where I know somebody whereby I could get a recommendation from a US doctor count for an IMG or it must compulsorily be in a University Hospital or Teaching Hospital?"

Arrow It's not mandatory

there's nothing mandatory or compulsory

However, it's much better if you do it in a teaching hospital and they will value it much more than if you do it in a private clinic.

Thanks Lee,

if one is able to acquire practice in a private clinic, would it be legal to call it an externship, due to law prohibiting the touching of patients or is that state selective?

California & some other states do not allow it but you can do it in other states & you have to pay for liability insurance
