I am interested too...I think there are two options 1)Make connections for free observership 2)Pay these private agencies.

Both is difficult for me!

Default looking for observership

I am in a great dilemma regarding an observership programme. As i have already graduated i cannot do electives. What i hear is the board is only looking for hand on experience and they virtually screen out observership. But at this point since something is better than nothing I want to do observership in the month of May 2016. Can someone please suggest a good img friendly and acgme accredited observership programme !?

Default Minneapolis USCE/observership

I am so happy to see this thread. I too is looking for USCE, observerships for 2016..and I am also not qualified for clinical rotations for medical students, as I am also a medical graduate many years ago.

Anyone can share good info/experinces on USCE in Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul) area?

I want to apply residency programs this year but time is running out.

I have 5.5 years of clinical experiences in NZ and Australia. But I don't know if this will add any value for the program directors.

So far, of those program directors in Twin Cities areas whom I emailed and who replied, all said that I need to know someone, which I don't, because I just moved here.

Any advice/info would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

hi,
what do you mean "have to know someone" was that when you were inquiring for an observer ship under them/department or for residency cuz usually no one really says it outright like that lol.

Yeah. What I meant was they usually tell me if I know a physician, then contact them directly to set observership up.

The best way to start is to google and find a list of colleges which allow observership and then start applying according to your subject of choice. for IMGs like us, we hardly have connections with any proff in US college, so its difficult for us. Let's start applying and if anybody get's a positive reponse do share your experiences with us. Please post your subject of your interest.
I'm interested in IM.

Hello,

I noticed you had posted about observerships in Atlanta. I would like to stay in Atlanta and do some observerships for a while if possible in IM or FM. Any information would help! My private msg is arcturus288 at gmai Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
D

Default Observership

I have heard about the course from one of my friends while in the final year of Biology course. I didn't do professional medical education course yet. Can I join for the course? Which are the best colleges to do the course? I wish to know that whether it will be a daunting task for me or not as I do not have a medical education certificate.

Please let me know.
