  • 2. Worcester Medical Center __________________________________________________________ OBSERVERSHIP 2009 Dear GSMC / KEMH Interns and Residents, We are in the process of setting up the 2009 "Observership" Program. There are several changes in the set up. 7. Because of limited number of available mentors only 6 - 8 candidates will be selected for the 2009 program. Selection will be based on merit, strength of recommendation letters, scholastic and extra- curricular activities. 2. To assure a spot, the sooner you submit all the required documents the better your chances of confirming a position. Incomplete data will delay your registration and you could lose your priority. 3. Rotations will be assigned on an as available basis. We will try to meet your requests but no guarantees. 4. List of required documents will be sent to you separately. 5. Print out the "Confidentiality Agreement" and sign and print your name where indicated and return a scanned copy with the rest of the documents. 6. Once we receive and review your completed application you will be informed about our decision and rotations. 19 July 2008
