Default Do I have to pay for observership?

If I want to be part of an observership program do I have 2 pay for the time I spend in that hospital? Even if I've reached out them (two their observership program) w/no 'broker', no intermediary. Please Let me know as soon as possible, because I intend to apply for one

If there is no mediator between you and the ovbservership program then you will not pay a single penny.
Of course, you have to think of your accommodation, transportation, ...etc as they will not cover them for you.

Default Looking 4 Observerships

Hi, HouseWannabe!

For me It has being as easy as checking USMLE forum. Here You are going to find in different forums Hospital's Links which happen to be very informative and have plenty organized information in this regard.

You can also make your own reserch, going to different Hospital's Webpages, the ones of your interest to check What They can offer, (this advice I got it from here as well) or outsource this diligences to special programs that can make that for you, but You have to pay for the service.

I hope I could help You w/this information, any further question...do not mind to ask me again.

Good Luck!
