@ Doc Mav

thanks for your reply. Do you think it would help more if I got step 3 done?

If 2010 was the last year you completed US hands-on clinical rotations and your LORs are related to those rotations then you have much to prepare for.

Residency program expect LORs to be within 1-2 years and dont like for applicants to have gaps longer than 3-6 months between hands-on clinical rotations.

You would benefit by completing 4-6 Physician supervised insured hands-on externship rotations between 02/13-07/13 and securing 4 clinical evaluations and 4 LORs.

CV, Personal Statement and ERAS Application being professionally revised would also benefit you.

Contact me if you need any help.


Best - Victor
