hello everyone! i am looking into getting some stateside rotations done soon. i have a good IM rotation set up, as well as possibly an ob/gyn rotation at the same place. however, this is at a big uni med center, they don't have any FMG's and the average board score is way higher than mine, so i think it may be a good place for a letter, but not an audition.

anyhow, what i am looking for are some smaller, community hospitals that would be interested in having an international student rotate through. ideally, they would also be places that have a history of being open to international students with less than stellar scores.

if any of you have a connection or an idea of a good hospital, please post it or send me a PM. i really appreciate the help!

thanks.

I heard that Yale had IMGs in the past. One of them did first a Family Practice residency before the ObGyn - I don't know if that is a sign of not so good board scores or just being undecided on a specialty right after Med school.

Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island in Pawtucket RI has lots of FMG's, is a nice community hospital that also does OB, and has a IM and Family Medicine residency program.

- UVM (Burlington, VT): Talk to the student affairs office first for paperwork material and list of rotations

- Washington Hospital Center (Washington, DC): This one is rotation dependent, but OB-Gyn should be open for you. Talk to the residency coordinator.

- Yale: They have very nice people to talk to, but the overall costs and my lack of desire to live in that region swayed me from doing a rotation there. They do however help you out with housing, etc.

- Harvard (Boston, MA): If you want to spend the $$$, then you can do a couple of electives there although I am not sure about OB-Gyn.

- AMC (Atlanta, GA): You can do alot of rotations there however students in the past have had problems with paperwork getting lost/shuffled (i.e. evaluations, California L6 forms)

- There are other places that are friendly but I don't have first hand information on them and do not want to mislead you: Wycoff in NYC, Southwest Hospital in Atlanta (Morehouse affiliate), Ronoake in Virginia, Harbor Hospital in Baltimore (charges for rotations), NIH in Washington, DC (application available on-line).

I hope this helps. By the way (I think you know this) but do NOT do rotations in Texas if you want to do residency there or practice since its a violation of their IMG policies.

Good Luck!
