Question Fellowship for IMGs ?

Hi Doctors !
I'm new to the forum and so apologies if this has been addressed in some other thread.. I want to ask is it possible for an IMG to continue in a fellowship program if he/she don't have the American Board in certain specialty ? For e.g If someone has an Arab Board in Ob-gyn, can he continue in gynecological oncology fellowship program in US ? providing that he has already done with the steps successfully ..

Thank you very much

Default Some did fellowships but not all

Specially in cardiothoracic surgery and anesthesia
I know some people for sure
I heard about 2 or 3 geriatric or other non competitive fellowship programs like endocrine and nephrology but medical fellowship is harder
The only way to make sure is by contacting all ob/gyn fellowship programs by email or phone
At least u should be practicing in the field and had done research
Fortune favors the bold,Fortune favors the brave
