Default Getting residency with observationship (without elective)

Hi... Has anyone got residency with observationship??
In fact I am really worried.. I have already completed my final year MBBS and I have not been able to do elective. So, I will have to do observationship. I just wanted to know what are my chances of getting residency with just an observationship.
Please someone reply me. I am very anxious.

Hi,

I am quite new to USMLEs and USCE so do not take my words for granted. I have looked into residency a little and it seems that the need for previous hands-on experience depends on the program(s) you are applying for - some programs mention that it is not mandatory. But unless you know somebody (who knows somebody) who can help you get into a residency program I still think that hands-on experience is a must-have as being accepted is very competitive. Hope that helps.

hands on experience is extremely important and very beneficial to aid in matching. i have been in contact with many of my seniors who did observerships and externships at hospitals all over the states and recieved LOR's. message me for more info/details on the steps they took to obtain these rotations.
