Default Externship advice needed

Hi i am a final year med student. My univ helps us in externship by linking to some programmes in states. But i still havent given step 1. I need to know if i should apply for externship before giving step 1 or after step 1? If i give after step 1. By that time i wont be able to use my univ resourses. I wish to do residency in neurosurgery(yes it is a competitive field). Also could anyone suggest places where i can apply for externship in neurosurgery.

Default Step 1 first

I think you should focus on taking a step 1 first because your scores would really matter alot in choosing specialty.
