  Hey itís difficult to get peds observership in hospitals. I went through an agency to get observership at outpatient clinic in Brooklyn but ended up getting hospital LOR. If you want to do the same you can email me and Iíll share details. I also did research at hospital as well.

  You need to send lots of emails to the programs for getting the opportunity and it is difficult to find rotations. You can apply through agency i have gained strong externship rotations and was completely inpatient hospital experience and received a strong LOR at the end of the rotation.

  Getting USCE is very much useful for IMGs nowadays for the application, try to look for agencies they can provide externship rotations. I have gained an externship rotations from an agency but in different specialty.
