    6. Other services – there are services that you can apply to and they will place you in the USA, however most of them charge a high fee and no guarantee that you will be placed.

    I do not know if US Electives charges money, but they have a list of schools that accept international medical students for research or clinical electives, externships and observerships.

    One issue that always comes up is pricing. The USA seems to be very expensive (especially going from a currency much weaker than the dollar).

    True. Adding to that, some schools require USMLE step 1 or ECFMG certificates as pre-reqs now too.

    Are there any funding options from the organizations above?

    I have been searching up on that for my cousin , but don’t have any good news. Will share, when I find something.
