There is a lot more involved with the US medical residency process. You will need to consider getting US clinical experience, and taking your USMLE tests before applying to programs. I suggest you get familiar with the following websites before jumping in and deciding to apply:

1. ECFMG http://www.ecfmg.org/
Advocate and IMG services, your best friend. You will need to be ECFMG certified to start a residency.

2. AAMC https://www.aamc.org/
Home of ERAS, the main application website

3. USMLE http://www.usmle.org/
The exams you need to take are Step 1, Step 2 CK and Step 2 CS

4. NRMP http://www.nrmp.org/
Home of The Match after you have applied to programs.

That should give you a good start on the process.
