  2. 2. Example Program Requirements -Family Medicine University of Buffalo, Family Medicine Residency requires that IMG applicants have six months clinical experience inpatient OR outpatient, in the past 2 years. University of Wisconsin Madison, Family Medicine Residency states that interview selection preference is given to applicants who have clinical experience in the United States or Canada that is particularly relevant to Family Medicine (research or observerships do not qualify as clinical experience).

Example Program Requirements -Internal Medicine Yale School of Medicine, Internal Medicine Residency seeks a minimum of eight weeks of hands-on direct clinical experience in a U.S. or Canadian accredited teaching hospital. We will not interview candidates who have not obtained this required clinical experience. Observerships without direct clinical responsibility do not meet these criteria. Oregon Health and Science University, Internal Medicine Residency states that, IMGs must be ECFMG certified at time of application, must have at least one year of clinical experience in the U.S. or in a health care system similar to the U.S. and have graduated from medical school within the last six years.
