  Which one is better? two months of externship vs two months of research experience? I am applying for IM this year. Graduation year 2013, step 1 score 21+, step 2 ck 24+, both 1st attempt, awaiting cs result, preparing for step 3. I really want to improve my chances. which one should I go for? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks much.

  Doing externship rotations will be more useful for the application because it will help in getting strong LORs and can show to the programs that you are clinically active. But if you dont have publications for the research experiences you have gained then it will not useful.

  Getting externship rotations are much better than research experience. Try to get more than 3 months it can improve your CV for the application.
