The Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM) has a special provision for foreign medical students who are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents to enter the U.S. for clinical training in B-1 nonimmigrant status.
The FAM states that an alien may be classified as a B-1 business visitor if he or she is a student at a foreign medical school, and is coming to participate in an "elective clerkship" at a U.S. medical school hospital, without remuneration from the hospital, as part of the foreign medical school education. An elective clerkship is defined as a "practical experience and instruction in the various disciplines of the practice of medicine under the supervision and direction of faculty physicians."
Foreign medical students (not of U.S origin) who wish to enter the U.S. for clinical training must obtain a B-1 Nonimmigrant Visa from a U.S. Embassy or Consulate prior to entering the U.S.
Canadian students are required to have a visitor's visa (B1/B2) in order to attend Kaplan review and clinical clerkships. The Registrar's department for this purpose will issue a letter for all MD 5 students. You can request for this letter from the U.S. Registrar's office or online. Canadian students can get this visa stamped at the border.
