Both are for 1month each but Apogee group says they will try tio help but not guarantee getting into residency. I just want to check about their credentials and how helpful it will be after doing
I tried many places but so far I could not get any spot from other places

I haven't tried but I am going to use there service.
Chicagoclerkship. They have nice prices.
Anyways why you are doing observership on such a high price when you can get externship on more competitive prices.

I'd prefer if u find an observership through a teaching hospital by urself is more effective than through these associations as they r costy & many of them r through private clinic.
But u have to be patient as ur application will take 2-3 month to be processed but it worth ur time& money.
