I hope you passed CS on your 2nd attempt as I'm in the same boat as you! I'm Panamanian, have you heard about the special observership program University of Miami offers to Latin American doctors?

That's the URL for the program. Did you pass CS in your 2nd attempt? What did you do differently?

That observership program is the Harrington Program. I applied to it but didn't make it. Too many applications they said. So if you plan to go there, make sure you apply with a lot of time, and also try to secure other options as well.
