Default ECFMG certification / externships

Hi everyone,

As an IMG (= graduate, and not student) do we need to be ECFMG certified to do an externship ? Or does it depend on the company and/or externship. I'm looking at Medclerkships & IMG portal at the moment and I'm interested in USCE in family medicine only. Thank you for your input
