Default Observership fate?

I did a couple of electives in a hospital in Rhode Island under Brown university back in 2012. Now I graduated and I wanted to go back for observerships as I am highly interested in their program. The 2 attendings that I worked with then know me and therefore agreed right away to allow me to shadow them for a period of 3-4 months. Now the secretary emailed me saying that it has to approved by the program director in order for me to do the observership.
Is this going to be an issue will the PD deny my application even though the attendings are okay with it? I have never done an observership before so anyone have any experience w this?
Do I need to look into other options and apply to other places?
Thanks in advance guys! Kinda freaking the eff out here!
