  Hi guys,

I am very confused what to do in the remaining time till next residency match. I am ECFMG certified and I don't know observership is more helpful for my resume or working as a medical assistant in a private clinic. I really appreciate it if you sincerely share your experience or information. These are my questions:

Can International Medical Graduates work as a medical assistant in California? Is it helpful for strengthening resume? Is it important to work in which state?

Thanks in advance

  Doing as Medical assistant will not be considered as USCE. As an IMG you need to have hands-on clinical experience in US ang gain Strong LORs. So, You need have externship experiences which can make the application much better for the match process and will be provided with LORs.

  The observership is better.

Try to attend grand rounds and make as many presentations as possible so that you could get one or possibly more LORs at the end of it.
