Greetings everybody It's my first post here. I was desperate enough to Google and somehow ended up here. I am a US IMG, last year, good rank (and once was first of my year on IM rotation), Step 1 done... I am looking for a US clinical experience (a hands on elective rotation). I like IM, with all passion, and almost all subspecialties (and especially ID). I don't mind any subspecialty really, they all excite me haha. I literally tried everything... I always end up with either an observership (which is not really nicely considered for the match), or just getting ignored. I emailed a lot of doctors and hospitals, it seems like there's no use. I know companies like AMO and those exist, but many say they're shady, many say you don't really do anything, and most importantly they're expensive for very lowly ranked hospitals. I don't mind a place with no particular rank, but doesn't make sense to pay that much money for something that should be free. I am ready to pay my own insurance. I'm out of time as my elective is due in like 3 months (and I need paperwork and such...). I'll pay with coffee, kindness, smart questions, daily compliments and especially hard work. Even if it's just hope with no real confirmation, I can try sending an email of my info + CV + motivation letter... And we'll see what happens. My dream is to catch a residency in the US so I could help, with my passion, as much people as I can knowing I did my job in getting fit as a good physician. Any help?

Sometime in the next year I will have an elective month in residency. I am very interested in doing an international rotation but only one PA resident in our program has done this so I don't have a lot of great ideas yet. I'm just reaching out to see if anyone has contacts or has had a good experience with a particular international organization. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I am in desperate need of clinical rotation sites in the seattle area. If anyone knows of any physicians or PAs willing to take a student for a 6 week rotation, please let me know. I am from Nova Southeastern University in FL and trying to finish my electives here in WA state. I can send my resume and any other information needed. Thanks, Hope
