WHY CHOOSE US
Our U.S. clinical rotations are for international medical graduates (IMGs) who seek exceptional observership and hands-on experiences.
Every rotation and every attending physician have been carefully chosen with one goal in mind: to help you get into residency.
Rotation sites and physician preceptors are selected and evaluated by Dr. Samir Desai, author of the best-selling books The Successful Match 2017 and Success on the Wards.
As one of the nation's foremost experts on clinical rotation and residency match success, Dr. Desai is deeply committed to ensuring that IMGs have the best possible clinical experience.
Our goal is not to simply place you in a rotation. We want to see you match successfully. That means gaining a full understanding of your situation, your goals in medicine, and your concerns so that we can identify a rotation or rotations where you will be in a position to succeed.
It also means giving you expert advice about other aspects of the residency selection process so that you can make great decisions about your future.
You'll see that personalized attention from Dr. Desai from the moment you contact us. It's what makes us stand out. It's what you deserve.

A rotation is secured upon receiving a non-refundable deposit of $1,000 from the applicant. For IMGs requiring a B-1 visa letter, an invitation letter addressed to the applicant can be provided at this time. MD2B Connect does not write letters for or sponsor other visas.
The balance of the payment is required to be paid 45 days before the start date of the rotation. If this payment is not completed on time, the secured rotation may become unavailable.
In the event of an unexpected cancellation by the physician, an alternate rotation will be proposed by MD2B Connect with an emphasis of trying to maintain the same specialty and location. If an alternate cannot be agreed upon by both parties, MD2B Connect will refund payment.
