Question Externships/Observerships for international medical STUDENTS


i am a 3rd year medical student in my country (our med school lasts 6 years)
and we started clinics this year

I am planning on taking the USMLE step 1 next October, and started studying for that already

But after taking the exam (and assuming i do well) and finishing my 4th year of studies, i would like to start and gain some medical experience in the US

but checking the internet, i see externships/observerships are usually offered to medical graduates
and electives usually only to last year students

is there any way I can come and just observe or volunteer at a good hospital there? i am interested in seeing how the examination process goes there and gain experience at the same time

thank you
