Hi, If you need help getting an observership or externship, I can help you get one. Let me explain some things: - If youâ€™re on a visa (eg B1/B2), then you canâ€™t do an externship. You canâ€™t work in the states on that visa. So your only option would be an observership. - As for externship, you can do it if youâ€™re still a resident in some training program (even in one outside the states). If youâ€™re not currently a resident, then the majority of hospitals wonâ€™t take you. When Iâ€™m talking about observerships and externships, Iâ€™m not talking about private practices and hospitals. Iâ€™m talking about university- and community-based hospitals which are fully accredited by ACGME. Letters of recommendation from such places are stronger than others. I can also try to help you get a research position. I have no experience or affiliation with the private services that can help get you a rotation. As far as I know, they get you positions in private places. Iâ€™m not sure how legal that is though, due to the visa issues. Anyway, Iâ€™d suggest you ask other members online about such services and what their experiences with them are. Many people are contacting me and I canâ€™t accommodate all the requests or help everybody. These things take so much time and effort. Thus, I charge a fee. If interested, you can contact me at mat4steps2007 at gmail dot com for details. Please change the subject to what youâ€™re interested in â€“ â€œobservership/externship/researchâ€ â€“ so that I can know itâ€™s not spam. Otherwise, you can try to contact the hospitals and see if they can offer you an observership. Good luck.
