I would really like to know the answer to that!!! Considering I read somewhere that 8% of IMG doctors in states are Pakistani, which is second highest, next Indians who are 20%.

APPNA has a Committee for Young Physicians (CYP). Have a look at their website http://www.cyponline.net/. They have a facebook page as well.

APPNA members visit pakistan every year around december and organize orientation seminars regarding USMLE and residency in the US at different medical colleges. This year's meeting is planned to be held at QAMC, Bahawalpur. I had a chance to attend their meeting held in my college(AIMC) a few years back.

APPNA has very actively pursued visa problems faced by pakistani doctors who had been selected for residency positions for the last many years. They have also helped candidates in the post-match scramble. Not sure if they arrange observerships, but they definitely will help if you contact them. They also give out interest-free loans. Plus there's an APPNA house in New York that provides subsidised accomodation, but presently it's for guys only. The present chairperson of CYP is a lady, and i believe the committee is looking at setting up an accomodation for females as well, but that might take some time to materialize.
