Dollar Sign Average pay for USCE

Hey guys,

First of all I wanted to ask, what is the difference between

1) Externships
2) Observship
3) Clerkships

and if I wanted to go through the paid route, what would be an average price for a month attachment?

and when do you recommend (which medical year) to go for one? or after graduation?

Thank you guys

I was in the same boat a few months ago before applying for a program, I came across this article which helped me a bit:

http://medclerkships.com/observershi...the-confusion/

As far as average prices, I've paid between $1800 and $2500 for 4 week cycles with 3 different services (1 while I was in med school and 2 after graduation)

Hope this helps
