Our Collaboration

Organizational Collaboration


Founded in 1982, the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) represents a conglomeration of more than 80,000 practicing physicians in the United States.
In addition, it also serves as a platform for more than 40,000 medical students, residents and fellows of Indian origin in this country. The AAPI YPS/MSRF (Young Physicians Section/Medical Students, Residents and Fellows Section) runs under the main AAPI umbrella to give representation to them. 1 in every 7 people in the USA is touched by the care of a physician of Indian origin at any given time.

AAPI also has a Charitable Foundation (AAPI-CF) that spearheads free clinics and health fairs in India. To date, more than 19 such clinics are being actively run in various states of India under the AAPI flagship.
Every year, this mammoth cohort of physicians and physicians-to-be get together in a grand extravaganza The Annual AAPI Convention, a beautiful blend of professional programs with cutting-edge CME along with a dash of color in the form of social events and exhibits featuring esteemed invitees from the United States and India.

Brooklyn USCE

Dr. Ratesh Khillan founded Brooklyn USCE in 2017. Dr. Khillan is a board-certified Hematology-oncologist and Associate Chief at Kings Brook Jewish Medical center. He is affiliated with Mount Sinai Hospital, Methodist, SUNY Downstate, Interfaith, and Kings Brook Jewish Hospital. Dr. Khillan being an IMG knows the struggles and hurdles faced by foreign medical graduates. He aims to make rotations affordable to all IMGs and to guide and help them in the path to residency in the United States.
For Foreign Medical Graduates, having U.S. based clinical experience is crucial to securing a United States Residency training position. If you wish to train at a US-based, ACGME accredited institution, you should begin your preparation by learning more about the rigors and challenges of medicine in the U.S. The only way to do that is by rotations and observerships in U.S. based clinical sites, where preceptors can help you adjust to the differences that residency program directors will expect you to be able to navigate.
At Brooklyn USCE, we offer Foreign Medical Graduates the opportunity to learn in US-based clinical rotations sites for competitive rates to gain invaluable experience.

Residency Success

Residency Success was started by an IMG like yourself. Dr. Datta completed her medical education at a smaller offshore Caribbean Medical school, as they say – easy to get on the Island but more challenging to get off. She faced an uphill battle during her USMLEs; there was a lot of misinformation that added undue stress to her journey.  Over the years, she realized that we all need proper guidance and mentorship during this tiring but rewarding journey of USMLE to Residency. She has the experience of this arduous journey. She has been in your shoes. She knows the emotional grit it takes to reach the place you desire to be a future doctor.  The US residency MATCH has become more and more competitive every year. She is here to hold your hand and guide you through this path to reach your ultimate goal of matching into a residency and fellowship in the USA. Her passion is to guide you and mentor you through this career path.
