IMGs from Botswana for USMLE and Residency

Batswana physicians apply to USMLE and get the ECFMG certificate to apply to residencies in the US. During the match season they use ERAS to submit their application to these various programs and specialties: IMG Friendly.

Doctors from Botswana will come ahead of time to American hospitals to do some clinical rotations and get letters from these programs to make their application stronger. They will do 2-3 months depending on their budget in these institutions: Observerships.

Botswanan IMGs usually graduate from University of Botswana School of Medicine.
