    you can do observerships...basically follow the residents and med students around like a headless chicken. it gives the hospital a chance to see that you can actually manage speaking english with others.

    If you fail at AUC, SGU, or Ross why not transfer to SMU, if you fail at SMU, why not try another SMU.

    since in American, clerkships are obtained thru your school.

    since your indian school does not have clinical sites or affilations in American, you can not do clerkships

    additionally, clerkships are intended for medical students who are still in medical school

    all you can do is an observership, as i stated above where you follow students and residents around.

    Actually ...i think the confusion is because... internship in India = before graduation , but after you finish all your med school elctives. But since you are still a student, i think you shud be eligible for clerkship/ or electives.
    In US internship = PGY1.
    For the sites of where you can apply for some of this .... here it goes.

    some info
    Some schools that accept foreign medical students for clinical electives without STEP 1:

    Harvard Medical School
    Brown Medical School
    Mt. Sinai
    Feinberg School of Medicine (Northwestern University)
    University of California, Irvine
    University of California, San Diego
    University of California, San Francisco
    Baylor College of Medicine
    University of North Carolina


    I have a list of links to some websites for electives, you can PM if you want, cause my post count is too small... to allow me to post links...
    oh well...!
