With the advancement of medicine and the need to develop new skills and techniques, health professionals are increasingly looking for new opportunities in international institutions to observe first-hand cutting edge medical procedures.
International Medical Observership Program
An observership program is established by a medical association or interested group of physicians to assist international medical graduates who wish to observe clinical practice in a U.S. setting.
Through this scientific exchange program, the observer follows professionals in sponsoring institutions in their clinical and surgical routines.
Observers cannot have direct contact with the patient and must adhere to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations. They are there strictly to observe.
