So I've got a really strong FMG med student with us here in our community non-academic ED. He is set on EM but is having trouble finding fourth year rotations. Specifically he is having difficulty finding rotations at programs which have EM residencies. Everyone he has contacted is either giving him the wait and see runaround or is flat out denying him the opportunity to rotate based on his FMG status. I can personally vouch for his clinical apptitude and work ethic. He spends his off time from his core rotations with us in the ED. I'm talking 6-10 hours per day. This is on top of his other clinical responsibilites. I could go on but I wouldn't be posting this if I didn't believe in his ability. He is from Canada with an engineering background. He is in school in the Carribean. He plans on staying in the U.S. when done. My group would gladly hire him based on what we've seen so far. That is not an exaggeration. The program where I trained will not allow FMGs to rotate. I would enthusiastically recommend him to my program otherwise. I will do so come interview time. I would appreciate any suggestions or offers of a rotation spot if able. Please PM. Thanks.
