There are many more factors that are taken into consideration.

USMLEs are very important but only makeup 30% of your total ERAS application.

10% of your ERAS application is related to graduation year and accomplishments while in medical school.

60% of your ERAS application should highlight US training and hands-on Clinical Experience. (Number of US clinical rotations completed, CV, Personal Statement, Clinical Evaluations and LORs)

Residency programs dont like to see gaps of inactivity larger than 3-6 months between hands-on clinical training.

Contact me if you need help developing an effective plan will help you secure residency in the US.
