Question Neonatal Perinatal Medicine Fellowship without Residency

Hi,

I recently asked a question if I can do fellowship in US. I've done Diploma in Child Health (DCH) that is 2 years residency program (not 3 years like in MD) in Pediatrics after MBBS in India. I just went through this thread http://www.usmle-forums.com/residenc...residency.html where its written that we can get into fellowship even after MBBS. So can I do fellowship in Neonatal and Perinatal Medicine? What do I require for the same?

Let me be clear here that I'm not planning to practice in US. I just want to do fellowship and practice in my home country. Please help me with this. Thanks.

Thumbs Up Yes you can do it

Perinatal Neonatal Medicine fellowship can be obtained without doing residency in USA, specially when you have the experience and the DCH you mentioned.

However, most fellowship programs would require that you pass Step 1, Step 2 CK, Step 2 CS, and Step 3 before they can take you.

I suggest you contact the fellowship programs one by one and inform them of your intention. They will tell you the requirement in details.

But it's absolutely possible, I even know an IMG with no residency in US, who joined in neonatal fellowship program in Shreveport Louisiana.

Default Thanks

Thanks.. Could you provide me the link/website where I can find the list of the institutes that offer fellowships to IMGs because I'm not finding it on NRMP website.. And do you have any idea if I can do fellowship even without taking any of the USMLE steps? I've heard that some people have done their that way too..

Question Thanks

Thanks.. By the way, could you please enlighten me about the whole procedure for Foreign Residents to get into a fellowship? The application process, the requirements, time between the application and beginning of the fellowship, what visa they sponsor etc.

Plus, is there any list of institutes that are friendly in accepting foreign students?
