Do you think it's worth doing externships? I have done a month of it, but I'm not sure if i should continue the rotations for 1 more month..Any suggestions guys?? Thank you.

Well, the more you do and the more experience you get, the better. So unless you have a pressing reason to leave, I'd suggest you stay.

Maybe. It depends on how many US LORs you need and have obtained from your 1 month experience. Also, it depends on how much money you have to spend and the quality of your actual experience.

Different residency programs have different requirements for USCE. In general, it could possibly open up more doors for you if you have more externship time, but there are programs that require less time and others that don't have a specific length requirement.

I agree with everything above. It also depend of where. Of you have the opportunity of do an extra month in an university center,m(if you where in a office before ) it is worth doing
