Certificate Eligibility for Externship/Observership

Correct me if am wrong, do they accept students entering for the CS exam to there observership/externship, won't we require anything else for that
What I search among the forums is that you will require to be cleared in step 3 to get the license and so for the observership/externship/one of these, is it true?

Externship and observership is different from residency and residency is different from practicing medicine in USA.

Externships and Observerships are training rotations designed for IMGs (before they enter residency) and the requirement is usually Step 1 pass or sometimes just TOEFL pass or sometimes nothing.

Residency training require IMGs to be ECFMG certified which means pass Step 1, Step 2 CK, and Step 2 CS.

While practicing medicine requires you to get State license which means you have to pass Step 3.

again thanks for quick reply n for shifting my post here.
well i got myself clear idea about e/o-ship, thanks for the personal answer n also one of ur post that i came across in that thred , now whats this RECIDENCY TRANING means ,sorry ,but never came across this term in my search .i think every different word needs to be question it might be the term with different meaning so beter be clear headed than confused .
again as u said about practicing medicine n state license ,does that mean after step 3 i can work with payement there under someone may be a general practitioner (just thinking of all possibilities tough/easy) .also does that mean if dont get the match now i can use the time working with pay there .thanks again
