Default When to apply for Observership/Externship?

Hello, I am currently a 4th year medical student in Lisbon, Portugal (here medical school is a 6 year course) and I am interested in pursuing a residency in Internal Medicine (or Pathology, haven't quite decided yet) in the USA. I was wondering....I am planning on doing my USMLE Step 1 exam in February/March of 2017 and I was thinking if it would be possible to apply for an observership/externship (for the summer of 2017) after I have my USMLE Step 1 score? When is the deadline to apply for an observership/exernship in the USA? Is the TOEFL required? Is the USMLE Step 1 an important requirement?

Thank you.
