Listening IMG applying for IM and Radiology!


I have good scores 99/99..CS yet to be taken.
I know I am asking this a bit early on maybe but I am nervous.

I want to apply for medicine. I have 3 LoRs from doctors in US after doing observerships or whatever you call them with private practitioners in medicine for 2 months. Does that help? I mean it is a private clinic after all.

I have no radiology LoRs and no research experience. IMG, Graduated 2010.
plz suggest anything to improve my situation.

any chances of radiology?

Your profile seems to fit into IM match but I don't think your chances are high in getting radiology residency.

To increase your chances, you need Radiology LoRs and some research experience.
