DID you take step 1 and 2 CK-CS yet? DO you mean Certification? Bout the Bond that is the India's government, I know in the US there is a movement to make people go back as promised since India needs physicians.

thanks doc! i will keep that in mind.
i have tried sending letters to various hospitals across the country for an internal med observorship/externship, but have always recieved a negative reply.

i heard it is kinda difficult to get one during this period and also we need to personally meet with the program manager in person if we can manage it.

have you been able to do any observorships? how did u go about it?
