Help about observerships/externships.

Hi colleagues,

I am an IMG and just passed step 1.
I will come to USA in the following year and I want to continue to my career in USA.
I haven't been in USA before and obviously I haven't performed and observership/externship yet.
It seems that it is one of the essential steps for me (step 1+CK+CS+3 and in addition step USCE ).
I need more information about them- application, fees etc...

I plan to spare my 1-2 years to pass all steps and i will be in the States when I will do that.

What should i do in that period.

that would be great if you answer my questions.

thanks a lot,
