Gaining US hands-on clinical experience is vital to choosing a specialty that will fit best for you, and securing the proper letters of recommendation. Beyond required clerkships and elective rotations, research experiences or other clinical opportunities can be a valuable source of specialty information, and can possibly help distinguish you from other formidable competitors. Research on its own is not considered US clinical experience by US medical residency programs.
