Default Step 1 score 206 - how to improve my profile

Hello People,
Inspite of getting good scores in the model exams(240+ in form 16 and 15), I only scored 206 in USMLE Step 1. I wrote the exam in October 2014.
I felt the exam pattern has significantly changed.

I understand I need to change my preferences since this score may not be sufficient for Internal Medicine. I am an IMG.

Can you advice me of my chances of being able to make it to either Pediatrics or Family medicine or Physical medicine?

Also how to improve my chances of getting into these programs? How do I improve my profile for these programs. How to find out research programs in these fields? Appreciate your inputs.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Don't think you can. Pack it in. That won't get you much in this day and age of USMLE and how tough its become to land a residency
