i thought it would be easier to get observerships , anyways dont do them under pvt physicians specially of your nationality , PDs look at it as a letter due to connections and is not regarded high , i guess look at websites of good colleges and you will definitely get list of observerships

well see this list its for electives ,but many may be offering observerships ...
