Post Observerships, research or a a paid externship?

Hi,
I am an IMG searching to get the all important USCE in my profile.
I have two question.

1. Is it better to do an observership at a good university program or to do an externship attained by the commercial companies providing them for a fee (in thousands)?

2. Or is it better to find a research position again at a good university program and then after working some time there changing it to to a paid research position?

How would these fair in the residency application?
Thanks
