The best time to do your observerships is between March - June .....

In July new medical students,residents and fellows will be joining , so the faculty may not be very welcoming in teaching you.It is interesting to note that many hospitals have new openings for observerships during these months,and mostly they are first come first serve basis! Many programs do not entertain observers from September onward as they are busy screening applications and later busy with the interviews. Some say that it is also of great advantage to do your observerships during November to January months in programs you are really interested in as it is the interview season and the program will have a better opportunity to know you.
