In hospitals where there are residency programs, usually they are busy in June (saying goodbye to leaving residents) and in July (welcoming new residents). Therefore, they might not be ready to take observers in those times.

But there are thousands of other places where there's no residency program and I don't think they have any issue in June and July.

Yes. It's useful.

But, if you can get into a place where they have residency program then that's better because there's a chance you meet the program director and he/she likes you enough and they'll send you interview.
