Passport USCE and Visa for IMGs

I wish to pursue residency in Psychiatry in the US. Can anyone tell me on which visa type should I apply for a observership/ extenship so that I can earn part time to cover my expenses in USA?

For USCE you can apply for B1/B2 Visa.

In USCE (observerships or externships), you don't get paid and you have no salary. In fact, you might have to pay thousands of dollars to get it.
