Default observership with a relative

Hi everyone,

I am planning to do an observership with an uncle who is a surgeon in the US. I have obtained a letter from him but i wanted to know that during the visa interview can i mention he is my relative or not? I will also be staying with him. Should the letter from my uncle mention that hes sponsoring me? I am in my final year of med school but havent graduated yet.

I plan to give Steps in the future. Can you also guide me which visa to apply under so i can preferably get it for a longer period of time? Can anyone advice me how to go about this as i have no idea about the visa process.

Thanks!
