International Medical Graduates
For an International Medical Graduate (IMG), obtaining a medical residency in the U.S. is as competitive as it is important. Some residency programs make it a pre-requisite for an applicant to have clinical experience in order to apply to their program. Having U.S clinical experience not only increases the number of residency programs that you can apply to, but also places you ahead of other applicants who do not have the experience.
