No, quite the opposite actually. FM is a great speciality to apply to if you need a Visa, loads of FM programs are very IMG Friendly.

6 Months USCE: That's false. Some programs require a certain amount of USCE and if you have it great as it opens up more programs. However if you have less than 6 months or none, you can still apply to a large amount of FM programs that do have that requirement. You will be at a disadvantage without it but you can still match.
