Default Doing US residency after finishing the same residency somewhere else.

Hello

I was wondering how good/bad to you CV is doing Internal medicine residency in a ACGME accredited University hospital outside the US and after getting the Internal Medicine Board from that country reapply for Internal medicine residency in the US. Is this considered a "Gap" after graduation or considered an advantage as an experienced Internist is trying to repeat same residency in the US with multiple publications from home country?

Thanks
