I have interviewed at a few New York Programs, and I am curious about the 12 week clinical rule. I am an IMG, but unfortunately my school is not on the approved list. That being said 8 of the weeks were with a hospital that my University in Australia owns and is affiliated with, but it is in the states, so therefore a different country.

I would like to rank these programs. I have never lied on my application or with held information from the programs. I was very clear with where I completed my electives and I still got interviews in New York and it was never brought up.

If I were to rank these programs, and I matched, are there consequences if the New York state decides I have done more than the 12 weeks?

How would you recommend proceeding?
