Surgery Is 230 Enough for Surgery Residency!

Hi friends,

I want to know that how much score do you think is enough in Step 1 to apply for surgery residency for an IMG?
other enclosures-

1. articles published in own country's top journals.
2. recommendation from one or two Canadian Doctors.
3. research experience.

Is 230 enough along with the above materials??

With publications and letter of recommendations from Canadian doctors, I think a score of 230 or above is good for Surgery residency.

I'm not so sure about that. But you should check what the average score of matced applicants was in the previous years.

I have read that getting a PRELIMINARY position is easier for IMGs in Surgery.
