Smile Home Country Psychiatry Observership!

Hello all!

I am in IMG and will be applying for 2013 match.
I am interested in psychiatry. I will be getting some USCE....but I want to know if doing an observership now from my home country under a psychiatrist for a month or two be good or just a waist of time?
Presently I am working but will not be working for 2 months so I thought to utilize this time in doing some observership!!!
as it will also help me fill gaps in my CV......

plz help!!!

Gaps in the CV don't look good during an interview. Go for the observership. It certainly wouldn't even come close to carrying as much worth as USCE, but it still is better than not doing anything. Plus you might get a good LoR out of it.
