Default Any non US IMG that matched into Surgery residency?

Hey guys,
im a med student, aspirirng to write my step 1 in dec. Ive heard that its extremely difficult for an FMG to match into surgery! but surgery is what I love!! Alot!! Would greatly appreciate it if anyone could guide me as to how i can proceed! I spoke to a guy yesterday who said that you need atleast 8-10 months of research and publications in addition to the clinical experiences. Been quite bummed out since i was hoping to apply for 2018 match but doesnt look like i have enough time to do everything and apply for 2018!
Even your smallest advices would be greatly appreciated!
Looking forward to hearing from you guys!

Thanks in advance

Hello Ella ,
Seems we are sailing the same way ... IMGs trying to get a surgery residency....
I was doomed as well by the research thing , but unfortunately that's true.
Not only is it about the research , but the PDs look for many other things.
check the NRMP reports 2016.
hope it helps !

Have you started using Uworld for step 1 ?

Planning to give my step 1 in June 2017.
Have you looked for any Clinical Electives so far ?
you will need to apply to them just after the step 1 result.
