Default Australian doctor coming to USA/ worth it?

Dear all,

im PGY6 completed my IM residency in Australia and considering taking steps and moving to USA. two reasons: 1. better job prospects after completing residency and maybe better training in USA.2 ? lifestyle

I would really appreciate any advise or share an experience is it worth coming to USA and how easy is to find a good residency for an "old" graduate without greencard.


Thank you

HI,

I've just joined this thread. I am also thinking of going to the US for a fellowship. I am about to complete my FRACP. Have you sat the USMLE step 1?

Default Post FRACP, planning to sit for USMLEs getting ECFMG certification

I have got my FRACP and am aiming to do step 1 by the end of the year.

1. Any of you have any experience in getting Form 186 certification? I have paid relevant fees to sit the step 1 but still waiting for a scheduling number.
2. If you folks are keen we can start a whatsapp group so we can discuss issues relevant to Aussies in getting certification etc.

I am also PGY6 but FRACGP certified.

Going to USA because husband moved there. I have looked everywhere for fellowship in California but unfortunately not many opportunities, and is planned to go back to residency.

Pass Step 1 already.

Happy to help with application process for ECFGM.
