Interested in applying for PTAL. Here's my situation. I'm an IMG who graduated after clerkship(4th yr) but i did another year of internship (5th yr) in another hospital (which is not acutally affliated with my school). I've been reading about IMGs with deficiency of 21 weeks. I am wondering if I could use the 5th year internship from the other hospital to make up for the deficiency. I read the application for PTAL over and over again, search the web for answers.. still did not get any answers.
