Default Masters program worth it after graduating from non-american medschool to match US residency?

Im a 4th year medical student studying in Ireland. I hope to practice in the US and my goal is to get into Otolaryngology program. I have one year left at my home institution until graduation and am preparing for USMLE Step1. I'm currently doing a one month elective at NIH (national institute of health), during which I was advised by one of the ENT physicians that I may not be a competitive candidate to match into US ENT program due to my non-North-American citizenship. He advised me to do some research work for a year or two after graduating from my med school to boost up my CV (I already have 3 publications btw). I heard that the best way to be involved in research work is by doing a masters program. Should I do masters program or just find one year research job? If I were to get a very good score on my USMLE would I be able to match into US ENT program without spending extra time after graduation in masters/research? *I entered 6yr Irish medical school straight after my high school graduation in Canada
