Default Hmmmm

Cleveland Clinic Clerkship is $95,000 USD

they are exploiting the industry and raping it of its natural appeal. We wanted experience without buying the hospital people!! Luv Hopkins though..

Hi Doxy, I have pretty much no idea what you just said. Avoid using slangs because this is an professional international forum and not all slangs have same meaning worldwide.

If your intention was to get the site URL please ask same i'd be happy to give.
I was talking about observership only, not electives.

Informal is free. Try emailing people there with your CV if you don't have contacts.

you were right doxorubicin..

i never came across this link ..asked a IMG med student abt it who is doing his electives in JHMI Downtown and he said it is legit and costs around 5 lakhs INR just for 2 weeks of Observership..not even hands-on

Thank god i`m done with em and i would advice that spending so much in some externship agencies will get you more useful hands on IMO-In my opinion
