Externship/Observership in a private clinic

Postby sailu_img » Sat Nov 22, 2008 7:36 pm

Hi All

I know this question has been asked by many.But I am posting same question again.

I am an IMG living near to Los Angeles.
I approached few doctors for shadowing/observerhip/externship.
One indian doctor (Gastroentrology) accepted my application.

He has his own clinic (where he works during morning) and visits hospitals in afternoon.

1.He asked me would you like to shadow or assist me?

I promptly answered I would like to assist him.
Right now I take case history, formulate treatment guidelines under his supervision... etc , accompany him for diagnostic procedures (Endoscopy, colonoscopy...), seminars ..etc

(Does all these constitue as externship? Which I presume)

2.He also OK'd me to visit all hospitals along with him.

q1: I would like to know does externship experience from a private clinic be considered as 'Externship'?
q2: Does my visits to all the hospitals add for Externship than as Observership?
q3: I know getting in University hospital would be great, but right know I am visiting
hospitals which are big.

Will this experience be considered at par to University hospital expereince??

Please suggest, I would like to know the weightage of this USCE apart from scores.
Thanks again

If the doc you are assisting is OK to call it an externship, go for it.

No, it isn't the same as formal externship at a teaching hospital. But latter is impossible to get. So, what you have is a great USCE, which will help your application big time.
