Default If u r ecfmg certified u can apply for fellowship directly

But many fellowship program directors prefer those who finished their us residency
So it s getting harder if u want it directly

Default Also the type and location of fellowship make difference

Surgical fellowships are easier sometimes
But medical fellowships are much harder
Unless u choose low competition categories like geriatric
I contacted all geriatric fellowships a year before and only 2 or 3 were ready to take me as i have finished my home IM residency
