I'm aiming for OBGYN. Kinda taken aback by the this year statistic though, only 77 out of 12,000-ish position were given to Non-US IMG.

I really hope you get your research position. Also you can always do 1 year Transitonal or Surgery [5-year] and switch to Optho.

ER anyone? I find it odd than many IMGs do not for EM positions as majority of people coming into seek care in american ER's are foreign nationals with no insurance. I think EM will be the next big thing behind FM, IM, and Peeds for IMGs. its competitive yes but it makes sense. Anyone care to comment?
