  ive been there. you dont do work in the actual hospital anymore (previous years they let you now they dont) ...instead you go through nursing homes. its definitely a good experience still, just a bit on the expensive side

  I did my FM externship last yr. Mornings: in-patient x 4weeks, afternoon,mostly nursing homes, some days out-patient. Being an IMG with no USCE, it was a really good eye-opener for me how the US medical system works. It's worth it. South side of Chicago sounds like not a good location, but don't worry, you'll be fine. Not as scary as I thought. You rotate with other externs and med students as well.
Good Luck! ^_^
