Help Timing of observership and the CS exam

Hello,
I am an IMG trying to apply for observership after completing my steps.
planning to schedule my CS in June 2012. so do u guys suggest i do observership before that or after that? and when should i start applying for both CS and obsevership?
I hope someone can help me out in this confusion. I have gone through loads of threads in this forum but a few lists of medical schools appear to be old.
So can anyone suggest me a good plan? and I request you all to explain me how to approach with my application too.:sorry:

I suggest you do the observership before the CS, this way you'll get some idea about how the US health care system works and it might be useful in your CS exam.

How to apply for the exam?
Answer: just like your Step 1 and Step 2 CK

For more information read the ECFMG Forum
