It depends dude to be honest, pvt clinic externship doesnt count much but something is better than nothing.

Just make sure that he doesnt mention in the LOR that u were coming only for 2 days a week and also make sure that he mentions that u had both inpatient and outpatient experience..

Default about observership at private clinic with a primary care physician

hello friends, i am new in this forum.. i have some doubt about observership. i have done observership with a PCP doing private practice and i have got 2 LoR through contacts.. so what should be mentioned in our eras cv? does that make my profile weak because of LoR that i got through contacts from physician practising at USA? I havenot shadowed them so should i still mention that i have done observership in my cv with those physicians? plz reply and advice...

Is your letter going to be on a hospital letterhead or clinic's?
I think if it's hospital letterhead than it will make a difference but if it is a clinic's one than it may not weigh the same.
Jus give it a try and ask physician if the letter is on hospital letterhead or not..

And I guess no experience is a waste if it is related to the field of your work.
Good luck.
