Get US observerships

Agree you need Step 3 to help with the numbers.

Star Agree

I agree with a good bit of what was said above.

Do extremely well on Step 3 (start studying now if possible), Pass CS on the 1st attempt. I would consider doing an observership/away rotation at a US Institution. This would allow you to get a few LoR from US physicians to help your application.

Are you looking to do Internal Med? Family Med? Peds? Whichever you choose, focus on that area specifically. Also if you choose PEDs, I would consider getting PALS certified.
