Help Clinical Experience from UK instead of US

Hi

I am Indian FMG. I have done step 1 and attempting CK in August this year. I want to know if EXTERNSHIP or OBSERVERSHIP from UK is of any value for the residency application or if USCE is the only way for it.
I would appreciate any comments or suggestions.

Thanks a lot

Default Hi

UK clinical experience does matter and will be recognised but it's better if you have USCE since that's what residency programs are looking for. It's better than nothing but not as good as USCE.

Quite a few residency programs accept uk clinical experience as well. Look at program requirement for UConn or Metrohealth internal medicine residency programs for example. However they want hands on clinical experience or electives rather than externships or observerships.
