So is observership not of such worth? I thought it is one of the best opportunity. Please elaborate.

Selection Criteria for Residency: Results of a National Program Directors Survey

"Despite student perceptions that research in medical school is an essential ingredient for a successful application to residency, our findings indicate that research experience ranks low among selection criteria when all specialties are grouped together. The NRMP also found that research experience in medical school did not differ significantly among U.S. seniors who matched in their specialties of choice and those who did not.1 This was consistent across competitive and noncompetitive specialties. It should be noted, however, that in our survey, program directors in particularly competitive specialties (radiation oncology, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, and dermatology) ranked research experience highly (Table 3). It may be that when all other selection criteria are outstanding among applicants to a particular specialty, research experience or research publications may help discriminate candidates."

When preparing for US medical residency you must keep in mind that the selection criteria is different for every program. In addition you must take into consideration what your competition is doing to distinguish themselves. US Medical Graduates average 2 or more years of hands-on clinical experience in primary care and related sub-specialties. More than ever, foreign and international medical graduates are completing hands-on clinical rotations in the US as medical students and graduates.
