Hello everyone,

I am a fresh graduate from my home country, not from US-medical institute
I am in the middle of here and there to practice in my home country or US.
There is something i would like to know more after step1 and step2 of UsMLe...

How can one become a laproscpic surgeon ... Is it very competitive ?
I hear say that IMG could barely become skilled subjects specialists like Orthopedic surgeon, General Surgeon , Cardiac Surgeon ,....
I'd be very greatful to you if you could give me the information...

With thanks ,
Jote

Its hard obviously but doable if u are very determined about it. U need very good scores, good letters of recommendation from surgery observerships and possibly research. You need to do residency in general surgery and then sub-specialize. (I am not sure if there are laparascopic surgery programs, even if they are available they would probably be very hard to get compared to general surgery especially for international graduates)
