Default What shall I write Observership vs Externship?

Hi guys, I have done an Observership under a doc who let me examine patients and take history, and has asked me to make format for lor.
So I was wondering if this is counted as Observership or externship in terms of experience? thanks

whatever your preceptor wants to call it. The truth is that observerships or externship, are the same thing under the PD's eyes, both count as USCE.

Every PD knows that in order to touch a patient in US, you need medical malpractice insurance. Physicians in PC's may allow you to do examinations under their supervision at their own risk - but that does not change the laws. Write the truth, and it will count for more.
