Help Strengthening my application for EM match!

Hi all,

I'm a 2nd year IMG from a good Irish school. I want to match into an emergency medicine residency. All going well, my CV will have 2 EM publications, a 230+ in step 1+2, average or above average grades and 2 US clinical rotations (at least one of which will be in EM).
I'll also be attending this year's EM international conference, so will have good evidence of a genuine interest in EM.
What are my chances of matching with these statistics? Are there any other ways I can improve my chances?

Thanks for any help,

NAC

Your profile is excellent. No more stuff to be done.

I think you can easily get into EM residency if you don't have geographical restriction i.e you are not only after one part of USA.

If you apply widely, you'll definitely get more than 5 interviews which are enough for the match.

Good luck

Default Keep it up

I agree with steptaker, keep it up, you are doing everything right. Keep the extra-curricular stuff going, you're going to have to make your difference a strenght, and interesting things on your CV outside work can help you to do that.
