Bulgaria Medical Student Sofia Bulgaria Looking for NY Rotations

I am currently in Medical school in Sofia, Bulgaria. I will be taking my step 1 this summer. I started doing rotations in Sofia. I am a US citizen from NY. However, my school does not have any hospital affiliations in the U.S and was wondering how I can go about applying for rotations in NY or IL ? I know that clinical experience in the U.S is essential as well as LORs. Thanks so much!

If you want to do it while you are a medical student then look at this post
Complete List of Clinical Electives for International Medical Students

If you want to do it after graduation then you have to look for externships or observerships

Hey Feb14,

Thanks for reaching out to me. The program I'm working with is located in Chicago only. It's hospital based ( no clinics ). Very good exposure and you'll experience the resident's life. Send me an email at anytime and we can talk in more details if you want. Thanks. (USCEINIST @ GMAIL)
