I think it traditionally means people born, raised, and educated in the USA...and then go abroad for medical school. It's more a sign of their social abilities rather than citizenship itself (GC/citizenship is just a technical status, but doesn't ensure total social integration into American culture).

That's just my guess from how I've heard people use the terminology, I could be wrong though!

Default ....

NRMP match reults divide applicants on this factor.according to them,nonUS IMGs have much lower percentage of matching than US IMGs.but we all know that visa factors play a major role in selection.so does it mean that non US IMGs include those applicants who need visas and plus who have greencard???if this is so then what is the benefit of greencard???furthermoremore you said citizens are those who are born and raised in america.but what about those who got citizenship by residing there for a long time and who were not born and raised there...
