Maricopa Medical Center needs 2 months of USCE for an observership. Has anyone applied without that? Any experiences?

I have research experience which they do not count as Clinical experience. I have passed step1, waiting for step2 cs results and attempting CK in July

Hey Jinx. You have to call them and find out. I am not sure if they do externships or not. All the above information is gotten from various usmle forums and websites. I cant guarantee that the list is error-free.

I just read this about efforts of AMA toward making externship and observerships trainings for IMGs, that`s promising:

I intend to do externship/observership in orthopedics, any help in this regard is highly appreciated.

Hi marwa. Observership is without hands on experience meaning you just observe and dont touch the patients. In externship, you would be able to do a complete history and physical.
yes, Johns hopkins it is 3500$ per month (you need to pay)
