Default advice

I am a IMG from Pakistan and I am looking for some answers.
I applied last year in few programs in IM based on 6 week observership in IM last year and I didnt match. Since November I have been involved in Research in surgery at state university and I have done poster presentation, gonna submit a study and continue to collect data in OR. I didnt get any good opportunity in IM. Now I am in a big confusion. My cv is going towards surgery and it is very tough to get a interview in surgery. If i apply in IM based on cv i have I am not sure i will get any interviews in IM either. I dont know what to do. I still continue to get opportunities in different departments of surgery for research and probably will get LORs from chiefs. Also If some one can tell me about IMG friendly programs in surgery I will appreciate.
BTW my scores are 233 in step1, 239 ck, step3 221
