Default Can I do fellowship in USA without a residency ?

I am currently finishing my MD in Anesthesia and I want to do a fellowship in Cardio Thoracic Anesthesia. Can anyone please let me know if I can do my fellowship without doing residency? I know I have to take the steps but do I have to take all the steps or just steps 1 and 2 are enough ? Please someone advise me? Is there someone like me who are in the same situation and eat to follow the same future? You can join me if you want to. Please respond and guide.

I find all this so complicated ecfmg, eras, match ???? Sometimes I feel that I should just settle here and forget everything . But that's my dream. Please someone help me.

Priyanka

Yes you can, but you have to finish your steps first.

I have a friend who is doing Ortho fellowship at NY and he didn't do residency in US, he only did it in his home country but as I said, he did the steps.

You have to be ECFMG certified (which means you have to do Step 1 + Step 2 CK + Step 2 CS)

You need to take all steps(1,2 CS,3) which means you are ECFMG certified, after that you will be able to get US residency.
