Ohio CLEVELAND CLINIC's RESEARCH & TRAINING PROGRAM for IMGs: 2nd Batch Admissions Open

CLEVELAND CLINIC, OHIO TO OFFER
POST-MBBS RESEARCH AND TRAINING PROGRAM IN U.S. FOR MEDICAL GRADUATES OF INDIA

Cleveland Clinic has established a post-MBBS training program through Cleveland Clinic's Center for Graduate Medical Education. The program is intended to provide international medical graduates of lndia, selected by the Trust and Cleveland Clinic, with the opportunity to prepare for further, post-MBBS medical education in the United States with combined opportunities for research.

The post-MBBS training program is one year in length. The second batch of Fellows will begin as of July 1, 2014, and complete the program on June 30, 2015. Cleveland Clinic faculty members will supervise during the
cohort’s clinical observation and research, and will evaluate trainees. Upon completion, participants in the program will receive a certificate of participation.

The goal of the program is to enhance the knowledge and skills of the trainees to improve their chances of success in completing the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 2 CS Certification. Training will also provide insights into the U.S. medical system, which will be helpful to trainees, if they subsequently pursue U.S. residency programs (although the program neither provides nor guarantees residency placement).
The program curriculum offers:
• Coursework regarding the principles of clinical research
• Participation in and mentorship in a research project
• Observation in actual clinical and research settings
• Participation in ongoing clinical conferences such as grand rounds and relevant departmental lectures/teaching series
• Attendance at personal and professional development workshops (including those offered at Cleveland Clinic Academy
• Participants may select from a number of online and live courses offered by the Center for Online Medical Education and Training (COMET) and the Center for Medical Education Research and Development Program
(CMERAD).
Participants will not have direct contact with patients (other than observing, e.g., on rounds, during procedures).

Applications will be submitted to Cleveland Clinic through the Dr. Nirmala Swami Charitable Trust.

Additional information is available on the Dr. Nirmala Swami Charitable Trust website at drnswami.org and by completing the "Contact Us" from, you will be contacted with more details about the program.

Questions related to the program may be directed to info @ drnswami.org or meded @ ccf.org

I think they accept FMGs. Why not contact the trust at drnswami.org and you will know what happens.
