Default Hands on experience through private company

Hi everyone,

I have recently been told by a famous private company (lets not mention its name) that their externships involve inpatients and outpatients but I can only observe while being in a hospital setting - which means no hands-on experience with inpatients.

Is it always true with externships (I can ONLY do externships as I am an IM Graduate) ? Or is it just this company ? How does it usually work ? Thank you for your input.
