Default How to get observership?

Hi everyone
I graduated this year from Cairo University in Egypt and I'm currently preparing for my USMLE exams.

I moved to US last month with my husband and I have a relevant visa and work authorization so I will not need visa sponsorship.

My goal is to apply for 2016 match program but my problem is that I do not know how to start any observership or research. I'd be grateful if someone can help me with steps to do to start filling in my resume and avoid any gap periods.
Contact lists, places to apply for, anything from your experience or any information would really help. Please note that I'm a new graduate so I do not have any experience.

Thanks in advance for your help

If I haven't misunderstood you, are u applying this year's match?
This year's match is essentially 2016 match
if you are referring to next year's match > 2017 match

As for this year's match.. you are late already for application.
although many do say they take applications until Dec,
chances are interview slots have all been filled, unlikely you could get an interview.

If you are applying next year's match,
you can start mailing center's for observership.
email PD's.

This is a link you should find ample opportunities.

Contact the faculty directly.. search for their email addresses.
email program directors directly.
Dont just target one place. target many.
