Default Maximum 3 Month USCE Rule for NY Residency

So I am in the final year of MBBS, already gave step 1, so was looking into visiting clerkships/externships lately so I could do them next year.

From a colleague I heard that You cannot do More than 3 months of clerkships/externships outside your home institution to be eligible to apply for any residency spot in the State of New York.


Is this true? I am worried because I was planning on doing at least 4 from good places in order to supplement my app well. I don't want to limit my options in anyway and New York does have a fair amount of residency spots.

If it is true, how would they ever confirm/know if you have done more than 3?

It says you won't be eligible if you do rotations out of your school for more than 3 months for credit, unless if your school is on the list of schools allowed. There are a lot of posts about this and a simple google search will give you answers. Try to look them up to save your time.
