Ok what exactly IS an externship?
Although I am not close to getting an externship I was just wondering, what exactly is that? I won't have to do mine until next summer. Here is what I think it is, a glorified volunteering job. Is that close? From what I've gathered it seems to be 10 or 12 weeks of volunteering somewhere in order to gain more experience. Is that right? And if so, how do you get the job? Are there only certain hospitals where it is allowed? Do you just apply to a bunch of different places and hope you get in? I am wanting to apply to Vanderbilt
in Nashville, and so far that's really my only choice. Is this something where I don't need to not put all my eggs in once basket?
Ok, that's enough questions, anyone have any answers?
