During my training lag, I volunteered for medical missions during the Typhoon Haiyan disaster and also worked at clinics and non-training hospitals as a reliever physician.
I just wanted to ask anyone with similar experiences (training lag of >1 year) regarding my chances of matching. Assuming I get competitive grades for my MLE, is the training lag a huge factor? Will it severely affect my chances of being matched? I've been getting mixed advice about this from different people. I'd really appreciate it if someone shed some light on this. Thanks guys.
Because what you did its not a problem, work on steps 1,2 ck cs and get US experience you will not finish step 3 in Time and not wise to expect to.
