Depends on what you mean by "internationally." There is not a single entity that acts as a clearinghouse for this sort of thing... it is entirely up to the country (or state) in which you want to practice someday. It also depends on your own citizenship(s) and the language(s) you speak.

Where do you want to work, specifically, and where are you from?

That is significantly more complicated.

Lodz (English) is not approved in all 50 US states, but that is the least of your worries as far as the US is concerned. Matching into a residency in the US as a non-citizen is getting to be even more challenging, and there are a lot of hoops to jump through. It can be done, but it is a long haul and there are absolutely no guarantees.

Working in the EU will depend on the lay of the land when you graduate (which is impossible to predict in advance) -- there are currently countries that will hire non-EU citizens with an EU diploma who can speak their language well. Germany, for example. There are also many EU countries that will not hire a non-EU citizen, even with an EU diploma. It is different from country to country, so there is no way to predict this with 100% certainty in advance.

You will need to have a firm list of where you want to work, understand all of the hoops that are required for practice in those locations, and then proceed with a firm grasp on those requirements. It may also require some flexibility, because stuff can change significantly in six years' time.
