TAU students who do the complete rotations in Guyana or Philippines will have the options to do Externships in USA. Externships
The majority of residency programs in the United States require International Medical Graduates (IMGs) to complete at least three months of hand-on experience in a clinical environment prior to qualifying for residency.
Our Externship Facilitators work with teaching attending physicians who are affiliated with a U.S. medical school, residency program or teaching hospital so we provide our medical graduate clients with critical hands-on experience including:
> Patient history assessment
> Patient physical examination
> Complete interaction and dialogue with the attending physician
> Experience in the U.S. clinical environment
> Charting/SOAP note taking
Most of our externship programs last from three months to one year. Once your program is complete, you will receive an American letter of recommendation from the doctor that reflects your professionalism and competence.
Observer ship Programs Don't Qualify
An observer ship program allows a medical graduate to simply observe a medical team, but does provide any hands-on experience.
