Match Data

Year after year, Match data shows that IMGs match at a rate significantly disproportionate to non-IMGs. Beyond gaining real-world experience with the U.S. healthcare system, USCE helps qualify you for more residency programs while helping you stand out on those applications. It can also help you with the USMLE.

Be Part of the Care Process

Hands-on clinical experiences put you at the center of providing care. Under physician supervision, you’ll  interact with real patients. Prepare for USMLE Step 2 by:

  • Recording patient histories
  • Taking vitals
  • Making differential diagnosis
  • Providing physical exams and immunizations

hands-on eligibility

Hands-on activities take place in the outpatient/clinic setting. Inpatient/hospital exposure is typically observation only. To be eligible for a hands-on rotation, graduates must have a passing USMLE Step 1 score.

Past IMG Trainee Testimonials

"My hands-on rotation with Dr. F and his team has made me a more competent doctor. For me, the end result was improved interpersonal skills, professionalism, and practice-based learning.  Due to my involvement in this program and the mentorship I received, I find myself with many significant new clinical skills. I’m forever grateful for this experience and recommend it highly."
