Default Observership or externship?????

I got a letter and on it says that I worked as an observer but the doctor also said that i was good at taking histories and performing full physical examination. So can I write this as an externship or should i stick with observer ship.

If you performed physical exams - it points more toward externship. Observership the definition is in the word itself-only Observing no touching the patient, whatsoever.

So even if it says worked as a observer i can say that i observed procedures like intubations, which i did. And secondly i didnt not hv insurance at that time, and if asked in the interview about the insurance, can i say no and will it still be ok?
