Star Orthopedics MS/Diploma b4 USMLE? IMG

After browsing through a lot of forums m happy i found yours,iv gone through all your posts on Ortho Residency and 10% chances. Thank you so much !ur ideas on improving CV were incredible.

Sir , iv just completed my internship.

Should i do a diploma(2yrs) in orthopedics before i apply for USMLE. as iv come about its more imp to do USCE then Indian/Foreign exp.

so my diploma will get counted as just an experience plus the added disadvantage of being an old graduate after 2/3 yrs ?

wouldn't doing work in US unpaid research be better coz iv done a lot of publications + research work in my MBBS?

Anything you do outside the USA is a waist of time. Simply, pack your bag, come to America and do any kind of USCE.
