Default Plastic Surgery for IMG's

Hello everyone!

probably u guys are already fed up with that topic. I'm absolutely aware to get a residency place in plastics is unrealistic for IMG's.

on detours? what about if u are luckey and get a residency in general and after that u apply again for an plastic surgery residency place.

is there a slightly chance to get in plastics after general.
is it not common in the usa, that most plastic surgeon started with general residency?

what would u recommend? with is the best path? where would u quess are the best chances to get a residency in plastic surgery in an english speaking country? US, UK, Canada, Australia.

looking forward to hear from u guys! Aaron

From little than I know in the subject is that only LoRs counts in so try to collect the max number of LoRs from US established plastic surgeons. contacts is very very important. AMG/IMG have the same chance and because IMGs generally don't have any contacts and usually LoRs are from overseas, chances are dramatically reduced to near zero percent.
