I am a Caribbean IMG who has done all of my rotations in the US. I just found out that my transcript does not show where I have completed them. Should I include this in my work experience? I could even leave out any descriptions to make it short since it is known what medical students do. This would strictly be to show where I have done my rotations.

I have US LORs and have a sentence in my personal statement about doing my rotations in the US, but is that good enough? I want programs in the cities I rotated in to know I did them there.

Need an answer ASAP if this is a good idea or not.

(I have found similar threads on here, but none in regards to if the applicant knowing that the locations are not on their transcript)

I wouldn't include rotations that you did in med school as part of your "Work experience". If you have LORs from US docs that you did a clinical rotation with, I imagine it will be assumed you at least did some of your rotations in the US. I think you're overthinking this.

That said, I'm an applicant, so really I have no idea.

Also, you don't need to post the same question in multiple places.

Closing.
