Cleveland Clinic Offer for Indian IMGs
 
1 Attachment(s)
CLEVELAND CLINIC, OHIO TO OFFER
POST-MBBS TRAINING PROGRAM IN U.S. FOR MEDICAL GRADUATES OF INDIA

Cleveland Clinic hase established a post-MBBS training program through Cleveland Clinic's Center for Graduate Medical Education. The program is intended to provide international medical graduates of lndia, selected by the Trust and Cleveland Clinic, with the opportunity to prepare for further, post-MBBS medical education in the United States with combined opportunities for research.

The post-MBBS training program is one year in length. The pilot cohort of trainees could begin as early as July 1, 2013, and complete the program on June 30, 2014. Cleveland Clinic faculty members will supervise during the
cohort’s clinical observation and research, and will evaluate trainees. Upon completion, participants in the program will receive a certificate of participation.

The goal of the program is to enhance the knowledge and skills of the trainees to improve their chances of success in completing the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 2 CS Certification. Training will also provide insights into the U.S. medical system, which will be helpful to trainees, if they subsequently pursue U.S. residency programs (although the program neither provides nor guarantees residency placement).
The program curriculum offers:
• Coursework regarding the principles of clinical research
• Participation in and mentorship in a research project
• Observation in actual clinical and research settings
• Participation in ongoing clinical conferences such as grand rounds and relevant departmental lectures/teaching series
• Attendance at personal and professional development workshops (including those offered at Cleveland Clinic Academy
• Participants may select from a number of online and live courses offered by the Center for Online Medical Education and Training (COMET) and the Center for Medical Education Research and Development Program
(CMERAD).
Participants will not have direct contact with patients (other than observing, e.g., on rounds, during procedures).

Applications will be submitted to Cleveland Clinic through the Dr. Nirmala Swami Charitable Trust.

Questions related to the program may be directed to info @ drnswami.org or meded @ ccf.org

Please type "Post-
MBBS Research Training Program" in the subject line.

Additional information is available on the Dr. Nirmala Swami Charitable Trust website at drnswami.org

Unless you fill in the information about your education and USMLEs cleared to establish eligibility the cost in not decided is what I learnt. It's just a click to send in the info - the form is pretty descriptive. Also, they do the visas for 1 year sponsored by CCH and so it depends where you are i.e. US or India or wherever.

Indeed a great program
 
I am very much interested in this program. I would like to register right away and start since i still have CS to be cleared.

Hey Doc !!! Thanks for this info...
I had few queries for you to answer.

Firstly, I want to join for this program for next yr (2014-2015). When should I apply?
Secondly, what is the appx number of candidates likely to be selected?
Thirdly, I will be sponsoring myself with help from my Dad. So how should I fill up the "Financial Support" part?

Thanks once again.

I believe this program would be quite useful for any fresh IMG into the US clinical world, but if you look at the price then one can also think its a profit making company from thirsty medical graduate.

Also why only Indian IMG thats sound flaws in the fairness.

Is the cost of $85,500 verified info? If so, could someone provide proof of it with a link/an email please?
