Freida online

Hello guys ,
the best way in my opinion to look for clinical electives is to simply register at FREIDA (an AMA service....and its free.) and search the residency programs of your interest. Once you get the residency program lists , then go to individual institution's website and mail them personally .. asking wether they accept the IMGs or not , for clinical electives. This would take hardly a week if done with dedication.

Hey guys i am an IMG. I would like to pursue my carreer in General surgery to only which I have been exposed to, during my medical school. And also cardiothoracic surgeryWhere I was given a chance to observe stent placement and bypass surgeries so I am interested in cardio too. But, Had I been exposed to Plastic surgery, urology, GI surgery, vascular surgery( except for the bypass and the stent I haven't seen any before), Transplant surgery who knows where my interest would have been?Can anyone throw some light on my confusion about what more knowledge or insight do I need to pick up my choice of interest(field). And then, I went into Frieda and searched for the General surgery and Vascular programmes in the Eastern region, and there comes a whole bunch of programmes...I don't know which are the best institutes or the hospitals to which I can apply too?
Can anybody help me which Hospitals are good for gen surgery? and where can i get an LOR too..
Thank you.

hey, take step 1, that will improve your application. Try Mayo Clinic, the fee is only 350$ and TOEFL can be waivered for students with English as medium of instructions.
