Everyone who has done externship from the companies providing it, please share your experience here.. How useful it is to get into residency? I'm thinking of doing one.. But need to know its usefulness before paying a real big amount for it.. I have heard that its always better to do externship in the International Medical Graduates friendly hospital.. Do the companies provide externship in such hospitals and so we can apply to the same in future?

They'll put you in private clinics

No,
These companies will not put you in a place where there's a residency. In fact, they will not put you in a hospital, they usually put you in a private clinic.

However, the experience you get from the externship is still important because many residency programs require hands-on experience and paying of an externship company is the only way you can do it :toosad:
