I would just like to know if there are institutions that offer internship rotations for Philippine med school graduates. I don't intend to spend my entire first post graduate year in the U.S., but if possible I would like to have an internship rotation there, particularly in surgery. Here in the Philippines we are required to undergo one year of ROTATING internship, unlike there in the U.S. where in you have the option to go on a STRAIGHT internship. We are required to roatate in all diciplines before we could take our licencure exams and go into residency. I think your PGY-1 is already equivelent to our first year of residency here in the Philippines. Thanks people, I hope someone out there could help me out.
