Hey! Wanted to know what's the best way to get USCE, observerships? Does working as a medical scribe count too?
Also have you heard of anyone matching into Lenox hill program?
Thanks in advance

Hi!! I also need your help. I have scores of 241/242/pass all on the first attempt. I'm a 2014 graduate and I need a visa. I applied for the 2015 match for internal medicine but I did not match. In fact, I did not get a single interview despite applying to medium-tier places which had IMG residents. So I am a repeat applicant this year. I want to make sure I do not find myself in the same situation again come March. Can you help me out in this regard? I have no idea what I did wrong, if anything
