Now my husband wants to move to America ( he is not doctor), so I am gonna start usmle prep.
Please tell me what are my chances of residency? If I apply in psychiatry or continue internal medicine then what are my chances in psych and medicine and what is scope of psychiatry?
Don't sell yourself short, you can def match. You have a lot of experience now you just need some good scores. Study hard and land some great board scores and I think you will def be able to get IM, pysch and maybe some other stuff depending on scores. I am rotating at a program now and I would 80% of the IM residents are from other countries, they all appear to be very proficient residents and they few I talked to scored very well on their boards. If they can do it so can you!!!
