The goal of Suburban Medical Center's externship program is to provide international medical graduate physicians a valuable opportunity to work in the health care system in the United States, and receive supervised hands on clinical experience.
We started this Externship program with a purpose to provide real hands on clinical experience that is very similar to ambulatory block during residency that helps to make international applicants familiar with US health care system and develop interpersonal skill to start residency with confidence. At the end of the 2 months, our externs feel significant improvement in their comfort level in interviewing and examining the patient, providing them with health care eduction, charting in the EMR system. They also learn basics about billing and coding. To conclude, they feel ready to start the residency with 2 months of "Residency Experience"! To apply, submit following documents to [email protected].
1. Your USMLE score reports
2. ECFMG certificate
3. Medical school diploma/degree certificate
4. At least one letter of recommendation from your medical school
5. Valid proof of current Visa
6. Preferred dates [at least 2 options of 2 month blocks]

Ranking tips: Remember guys, you have worked so hard to achieve the residency.
Enlist what is most important to you, i.e. fellowship, location, work life balance. A great program gets you everything.
A small program in Ohio(remote locations) with in-house fellowship of your choice might be a better match for you than a big program in Chicago, NYC(bigger cities) with questionable fellowship matching rates. (For fellowship seekers)
Variety in cases are in bigger cities- if clinical training and efficiency development is your goal. (For hospitalist job seekers)
If you know for sure you want to be a primary care doctor, don’t work too hard in residency and rank a good primary care program at the top of your list.
