Default Importance of experience in same speciality

Hey there

lets say I have got experience in anesthesiology, microbiology or whatever in my homeland and want to apply in IM or Neurology in the US... do you think that is a problem to "justify" in an interview? Do you think interviewers will see it as an disadvantage if you change the country AND the speciality?

Thanks for your reply
