Getting clinical experience in Pathology would support and strengthen your application. You can go to http://www.webmd.com and search for primary care doctors in the area where you live or plan to live. You can make a good guess about the origin of a doctor by his/her name. Doctors originating from the same country as you are most likely IMGs as well and know exactly what kind of a situation you’re in. 90% of them will be sympathetic. 10% will agree to have you as an extern.

As a result you can get LORs from U.S. Doctors which will make your application substantially stronger.

I needed a Ped and IM rotation 6 months ago. I called a lot placement companies in chicago, nyc, and atlanta. Chris from United Medical Rotations had me placed in 2 weeks. AMG wasn't bad either but slower. The one in ny was awful.

A formal in-patient externship is more difficult to get than actual residency. However, you can easily get outpatient externship in a private practice by simply calling the practices. You can go to http://www.webmd.com and search for primary care doctors in the area where you live or plan to live. You can make a good guess about the origin of a doctor by his/her name.

Thank you very much Dr foryour advice..I got some pathologist from my country in WebMD currently in practice..My question is should I call them or go and meet them personally in the hospital.Second option is tough for me as I have no means of transportation and I am in California where there is poor public transport system.
