Default General Advice regarding Match

Hello Everyone,
Hope all are well. I am an IMG who has just started the prep. I know i won;t be eligible for the 2017 match. I have a few questions for the 2018 match.

So from my understanding, i need to have completed step1, 2 by June of 2017 to be eligible o apply for 2018 match, is that correct?

And also regarding USCE. I am currently in MI. the the universities that offer observershio are Wayne State University besides that if i observe any other doctors by myself will that be counted?

Hi. Yes, you have to finish step 1 and 2 by June/July 2017 to be certified by September when you apply for the match.
Doing observership in teaching hospitals may be better as you would have the chance to make contacts but observership in a private clinic is equally good. Getting a strong letter is more important.
