It depends on the division. Foreigners 375$ + departmental charge 300$ + division charge.

Did you need sponsorship from a faculty member to get this position? If you don't mind sharing, can you provide more details on which department/school you applied to?

Dr S, thanks for your reply. If you have all the proper references/sponsorship in place, then it should merely be a matter of processing the paperwork. Have you heard back from them yet?

Based on your experience, is it easy to get a faculty member to sponsor you or are they very selective? I am thinking that I may request my clerkship professor to sponsor me for something similar down the road.

I had a senior of mine doing fellowship, and he found a sponsor for me,but then he told me it was not easy to find. I have send my applications around 3 weeks back, waiting for the approval..I have asked for the month of feb and march..

Your application has to go through 3 or 4 departments for review and approval. That is why it is taking time. It might just be sitting on someone's desk who is out on vacation. Clerkship process is simple it only goes to one department for review.

Regardless, once you hear back from UT HSC, please post your final thoughts here for the benefit of others.

Default Mail to the Residency Program Coordinator

I was told to send an email to the Residency Program Coordinator of each hospital, but I don't know "mail etiquette". Is there a thread with help on this?

Also, do Hospitals charge you for having you there doing an observership, etc?

In University of Texas, Houston,they don't have a formal observership program. The applicant need to identify internal medicine faculty in first step that will sponsor them for an observership.
