Default IMG friendly list of states

Hi,
Your question should specified into specialities
So it depends on which specialty you are looking to match
However if you want to generalize
then here's a list of the highest IMG matching states:
  • Philadelphia
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Maryland
  • Illinois
  • Ohio
  • Pennsylvania
  • Texas
  • Virginia
Note that I don't have a documentary statistics for the list, this is just out of personal and friends' experiences.

Good luck

I doubt it, at least for IM! Sorry bro.. But Portland is highly regarded among AMGs and OHSU has one of the best IM programs in the country.. Among the states on the west coast, only Arizona, NM and Nevada has a couple of programs notable for taking IMGs as far as I know.. Please correct me if I'm wrong..
