Default paid clinical training or USCE

hello everyone,

I wanted to know about paid externship/observership offered by various groups. I have got an offer to do training at a teaching hospital, Hackensack university medical center palisades. On their website, i found that their residency programs are approved by American Osteopathic Association. I dont know what that means, would this be worth? Can anyone give me an opinion on this.....

usce refers to the clinical experience not whether it's paid or not and you do not have to volunteer that info. The AOA refers to DO physicians but hackensack is acgme accredited in a variety of residency programs. This site helped me gain a lot of information http://imgtoresidency.com/

Hi, Thanks for your response. I understand that Hackensack University is ACGME accedited, but the specific observership I was talking about is this one: http://palisadesmedical.org/Content/...y-program.html

It says its accredited by the American Osteopathic association. If I do this particular observership, will it be beneficial for me considering that I plan to include it in my Resume when I apply for Residency?
