Default Medical Observerships in NY

We are currently providing observerships in the NYC area for ECFMG eligible doctors currently in the application process.
We offer flexible scheduling with periods of anywhere from 4 weeks to 6 months.
Students who satisfactorily complete the observership will receive a letter of recommendation from the preceptor in support of their application.
Ideal applicants will have matriculated from medical school, received ECFMG certification and completed Step 1, Step 2CK and Step 2CS and provide transcripts and score reports to verify the above.
The observership will provide some flexiblity to candidates concurrently studying for Step 3.
Candidates will be responsible for tuition that covers preceptorship, administrative fees and malpractice insurance which will be arranged by the clinical site and preceptor. Candidates will also be solely responsible for living expenses.

Participation in the observership in no way provides any guarantees with regards to the candidates competitiveness for residency positions although we do our utmost to provide ancillary support to the applicant in preparing a competitive application.

This programs aims to allow applicants in the application process to take advantage of the gap in clinical experience between matriculation and the commencement of the match process which can adversely reflect on an applicants CV. However, please not that It is not a substitute for highly structured clerkships and research programs but aims to augment those programs while broadening the experience.

Interested applicants should email the program coordinator and leave a detailed message including name, email, phone number, and desired dates and duration. Applicants with suitable availability will receive a detailed application form and detailed program information and can clarify any questions not already addressed.

The experiences will take place at private clinics affliliated with nearby community hospitals. Participation in hospital rounding will be at the discretion of the preceptor and is not guaranteed by the program. And as mentioned this does not in any way provide a guarantee of residency interviews. It does however provide an opportunity to obtain a valid LOR from a community physician with ties to local albeit non teaching hospitals. The discretion is on the applicant to ascertain whether this is an experience they would find beneficial to their cv and application. Any other questions can be directed to our coordinator at or visit our website to register to receive updates on availability of sites.
