What do you mean? Observerships are not really 'competitive' they are there so you can observe how patient-physician interaction occurs in the hospital, most of the AMG's do Electives, which involves hands on patient contact. Unless you're a student of a school that lets you do 3/4 year clinical rotations in the US, you wont be able to do the same "electives" AMG's do.
