Foreign Medical Graduate Program
CTN offers tailored, boutique style rotations, with a focus on Family and Internal Medicine. This program is specifically designed for Caribbean medical students, Foreign Medical Graduates (FMG) and International Medical Graduates (IMG) who are ECFMG certified that need an externship/observership. Rather than providing a wide array of specialties, our emphasis is on the quality of each rotation. At CTN, you’re not just a number, you’re part of the family.
We offer hands-on clinical rotations involving patient interaction. This program was created to facilitate access to medical education in the United States for the international community.

A foreign national wishing to participate in any Clinical Training Network programs shall be responsible for obtaining a B-1 (Visitor for Business) or B-2 (Visitor for Tourism) non-immigrant visa from the appropriate authorities or for entering the United States under the VWB (Visa Waiver for Business) or VWT (Visa Waiver for Tourism) Program. Clinical Training Network will release to qualified enrolled students an official client enrollment letter with details regarding location at which the rotation has been scheduled. Additionally, these letters will only be granted upon completion of full tuition payment. Additional visa guidance can be acquired through our trusted immigration legal counsel, at an additional fee.
Clinical experiences require U.S. health insurance, which can be obtained easily through one of many vendors. Hands-on rotations require professional liability insurance. We assist students in obtaining this insurance after the application is received.
Responsibility for housing rests solely on the applicant. However, if there are any questions, feel free to ask for assistance.

If students are unsatisfied with their preceptor, they have one week from the start date to notify us and every attempt to find a new one will be made, however, no guarantees on a replacement.
