Surgery can you reapply to PGY-1 again after finishing preliminary?

Hello guys,
I have a quetion
if you get matched to preliminary year ( internal medicine for example) at below-average community hospital and finish it successfully
is it possible to reapply to PGY1 (internal medicine categorical & not PGY2) the year after at more prestigious university hospital using the bonus of having full 1 year experience in USA.
Thanks

Yes it is possible, many IMGs do that and many others also find opening PGY2 positions.

Thumbs Up Good idea

Yup, that's a good idea
Because by then you'd have one year USCE and good US LoRs and you can get into good PGY1

go for it
