The transition from an international healthcare system to the U.S. healthcare system can be challenging. U.S. clinical experience helps applicants acclimate to the U.S. clinical environment, and prepares an applicant for their future internship training.
As a result, U.S. residency programs require that applicants can demonstrate that they have U.S. clinical experience.
Guaranteed Hands-On Experience
IMGprep has developed hands-on externship rotations for international medical graduates that are designed to give you the clinical experience you need to transition into U.S.-based healthcare. Through carefully designed objectives and performance guidelines that revolve around individual medical specialties, we help our applicants become acclimated to our healthcare system.
Once you have completed an IMGprep rotation, you will receive a performance evaluation from your preceptor. You will also be given an individual letter of recommendation that details your level of competency and the extent of your medical knowledge. Letters of Recommendation will reflect your clinical acumen and readiness to begin residency, and are a key component of all residency applications.

Straightforward answers to common questions about clinical externships.
You must carry liability insurance when participating in an Externship in the United States. IMGPrep provides a complete liability insurance policy for each of our clients. We will also provide you with the insurance company name and a direct contact that you can speak with if you have questions. Your policy can begin in as little as two weeks. When you enroll in the Externship program with IMGPrep, you will receive a copy of your own, individualized policy.
While we understand that each applicant is unique, participation in the IMGPrep Externship program requires the following:
IMGPrep works exclusively with attending physicians who provide hands-on experience for medical graduates. All attending physicians are affiliated with a U.S. medical school, teaching hospital or residency program.
IMGPrep will gladly provide you with contact information for previous clients who have participated in our program. We encourage you to ask questions.
IMGPrep only places our Externs into hands-on rotations that provide the experience you need to receive a quality letter of recommendation for residency placement.
