Question All observership in same hospital?

Hi All
I'm planning to do 3 Internal Medicine observerships, some universities and hospitals are offering paid observerships even for consecutive 3 months, What are plus and minus of doing all the 3 observerships in the same institution

thanks
RR

Default Advantages and Disadvantages

Advantages:

Disadvantages:
1- Less powerful LoRs if they all come from same hospital
2- Less connections making
3- Less exposure to a variety of US health care systems
