Default Contemplating to improve my CV

Hi I am a U.S. FMG from India. I graduated in 2012 and applied for match 2015. Unfortunately due to my abysmal step 1 and step 2 score I did not get a single interview this year! I was wondering how can I improve my CV so as to improvey chances for the next time I apply! Would becoming a PA help? I was thinking of going to PA school and becoming a PA And then applying for residency again! Please guide me!

Thanks! But I was just wondering would becoming a PA hurt my chances of getting a position in a residency program? I would really appreciate if anyone can shed a light on that!
