Default really need advice

Hi everyone,

I really need your advice.
I geaduated non-US medical school 16 years ago (2000)
I have been working for international companies (medical equipment) as sales representative in my home country for all these years.
In 2016 I completed one year IM residency in my home country.
I passed Step 1 (score 222), Step 2 CK (score 229) and Step 3 CS in first attempt in 2015.
I don't have any US clinical experience.
I need H1B visa sponsorship from residency program.

Do I have any real chances in match?

While every candidate is unique and it is difficult to offer any specific tips, it appears that you have been away from direct patient management for some time now.
You should try to get USCE (hands-on, observership). Visa wise- may be willing to accept a J also?
A lot in your case will depend on how you are able to align and showcase your work experience to the needs of the residency program. The profile is definitely not the usual one.
