What?!?! How is that possible, where are you getting these email from. Are you asking for externships/observer ships. Considering in regards to the residency process the programs don't even know we exist at this time as we haven't applied yet.

I was writing about SLORs for emergency medicine residencies and USCE requirements and one program said that.

Emergency medicine is really tough for IMGs. Prepare for a really rough ride ahead.
