It is recommended gaining USCE after going for Step1, step1 scores will help you to get good obsie/ externship. But if having the opportunity for rotation then must go for it.

Default Not necessary

Hello! my name is Millie I work at American Clinical Experience. You can do it without Step 1. Basically what is required is to be a Medical Student or Graduated, have a visa, some documents like your immunization records, photo ID, proof of school and of course for some you will need malpractice insurance. However, if you have step 1 score before rotation is better . If you have any consultation or want to know more about us you can visit our website www.ace.md/apply all consultations are free!!

Default Step 1 and USCE

Hello Dinesh,

Someone else just asked this same question. Here is how I would answer it:

It depends on what your purpose is. If you want to get exposure to the US system before you invest in preparing for the USMLE, then definitely do a rotation. It will add to your portfolio of experience although you probably will not be able to use the LOR because by the time you finish the process, it may be too old.
If you want a CV-building experience for your home country, then yes, definitely do it. We have had many clients over the years who do this.
If your intention is to go through the entire process, you may want to wait to see what your Step 1 score is and then make the decision whether to proceed or not.

No matter what you decide, timing is critical in this process so that you do not waste money, time and effort. Check out our article on Planning for the Future.

If you would like to talk about this further, don't hesitate to contact us. You can send us an email directly through our website at chicagoclerkships.com.

Sincerely,
Lori Winther

Default USMLE Steps not required for USCE

The majority of preceptors in our network (800 US licensed physicians) will not require a USMLE Step 1 in order to gain USCE.

With that being said, if you are applying to medical residency in the US, we recommend waiting for your Step 1 score and then gaining LORs within the specialty that will give you the best opportunity to Match in.

There's a ton of misinformation out there and we can help you sort through all of the mess

Thanks!
