Listening Old IMG done with residency and fellowship

Hi,

I am an old IMG (>10 yrs). Due to financial problem could not start prep. for USMLE before. After MBBS, practised medicine, then did post grad. in Pediatrics followed by research fellowship in Neonatology in Germany and published a couple of research papers. I wanted to know from the forum, is it possible for me to get residency in US (for which I am keen to from my first day of medical school) after clearing MLE.

Hello Rakc,

Yes, it is possible for you to secure residency in the U.S. According to the Selection Criteria for Residency, the top five selection criteria for those applying to residency were (1) grades in required clerkships, (2) United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 score, (3) grades in senior electives in specialty, (4) number of honors grades, and (5) USMLE Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK) score. As you are able to gather from this survey, aside from your USMLE scores, residency programs look for an applicant’s U.S. hands on clinical experience. Observerships, shadowing and research do not count towards this type of U.S. clinical experience; these clinical experiences need to be “hands-on”. One way for you to assess your competitveness for residency is by utilizing a self-assessment tool called the Residency Applicant Competitive Index (Butterfly). Here is the link for your reference: http://butterfly.americlerkships.org...670&modal=true

If you have any further questions regarding hands on clinical experience or the competitive index, feel free to private message me.
