  Does working as MA in the US for 6 months count as Clinical experience? Does it help?

  No.
Go for a MS/Ph.D/Nursing/PA

  It's your perspective the way you look at it.

I know a few people who were offered residency after they became Nurse Practitioners.
I know so many people being done with MPH still struggling to get into residency. At least, with RN, you have a chance to earn more and go for NP to be able to practice medicine as a licensed practitioner without being offered a residency. NP/PA also have less stress to deal with compared to MDs. There are pros and cons for everything. I was offered a position to do a Ph. D in Neuroscience. I decided to go for Nursing. We have to be practical minded at the end of the day. RN can get jobs very easily with good salary plus 1-2 more yrs of online Ms. studying get them a licensed practitioner. Email me if you need more input about it.

The best thing to make your CV look good is to go for a Ph. D. Any Ph. either neuroscience, Public health, biomedical sciences will work and will increase your chances of getting into residency. It needs life long dedication.

  You could also go for DO osteopathic medicine. They certainly get a residency.
