Default observership

Hi,

I am a 2017 graduate, non- US IMG with credentials 22X, 23X in step 1 and step 2.
With these scores, is it better to do an observership in a single hospital for 2 months or do it in 2 different hospitals for a month each? Which would benefit me the most? If I do for 2 months in the same hospital, will my chance of securing an interview there increase?

Thank you
VJ

it will be better to do rotations in different hospitals because you will be understanding the different hospitals work environment settings. Also, if you do rotations in a residency programs you may be having good chances during the interview.

Why you are looking for observerships try to glook for hands-on clinical experience they are more helpful for CV, also getting rotations in hospital setting is valuable than clinics.
