Info Pre-residency fellowship in Ortho/Urology

Hello there
Is it possible to finish my residency in my home country (in something competitive like ortho/uro) and do the USMLE steps then apply for a fellowship for 2-3 yrs then come back to my home country ?

There's a good chance that my home university would sponsor me ..Does that improve my chances at all ?

Do I need good scores to get a fellowship as competitive as that or just pass scores and a sponsor will suffice ?

Thanks

As far as I know, it's very possible for pathology

Check this thread , it has a lot of info on fellowships without residency
Fellowships without Residency?

Hopefully someone can provide some insight on a chance of sponsored competitive fellowships
