most imgs who have done residency at their home country usually would go back to PGY1 here in US. it was only long ago that they credit foreign residency & allow you to match into US fellowship. for me i think, its easier to do residency again here in US & get a fellowship. rather than go directly find a fellowship to match with just ave scores & b1 visa.
with your ave score, clinical xp & home residency, i think you will get high chance of matching to residency, compared to fellow match. think of it this way, it is a little bit hard for US residents to go into fellowships.
not really expert on fellowship, still applying for residency. but just heard this from old(age 60s) family friends who did US fellowships & had home residency.
