Passport visa for externship

Hi,

can someone please help me with this..

i have taken apaid externship in internal medicine..letter sent by the organisation mentions that it will be an unpaid supervised position..however i have already graduated (i am working in my country post m.d)

can i do an externship on b1/b2..how do i explain that to visa officers?
i went thru page 16,17 of u.s foreign visa policy manual..it mentions that clerkships can be done on b1/b2..externship( after graduating) are not mentioned..

wat kind of document can i show to visa officers which convinces them of externship on b1/b2..

also there is agap between my step 1 n step 2 of four yrs because i did m.d in my country..wat do i say if visa officer asks abt my decision of applying for residency in u.s after completing residency im my country,..can i say that i wish to do a fellowship in u.s in int medicine related specialty?

if someone can help me with this..it will b every helpful for me as my visa interview is in few days.

Regards
