Default Home country residency training?

What is the value of previous home-country residency training for an IMG?

Is it valuable on a CV for the match?

Is it considered a Masters? Is it nothing?

Does it help to lessen the fact that you're an old graduate (even if you got into a 4-year residency straight out of medical school) and it only took you a year to complete the steps?

Any insight from previous experiences or people you know will be highly appreciated.

Anything is valuable in your CV sir, I assure you this!

I have read about people stories crying after matching in their 40s and 45s age of life, in Radiology too! so inspiring, and I ask, what would they give for having your young age and ~4-5 year YOG status

I heard only (not fact I know), you can fellowship with ECFMG (your steps) + Masters degree...you need to ask more about this

I say most people must give this a shot...Good luck sir

Hi,
I have 3 friends similar to your story. They got into Residency last year. One of em pre match and other 2 match. They applied to the same specialty in which they did residency in home country. 240+ scores. No USCE . No gaps in CV. When they applied they had only step 1 scores. Also they had 12+interviews.



All the best
