California Any chance for an IMG matching in UCSD, for IM ?

I was wondering, if there would be any chance for an IMG to match in internal medicine program in San Diego.

Did any IMGs ever matched there?

What scores / other requirements are they looking for?

Arrow Difficult but not impossible

The chances are very low, but not impossible.

For example,

Last year there was only one resident accepted out 43 residents! that's less than 2%!

The accepted guy was from Addis Ababa University and his name is Melaku Birhanie.

To see the full list of residents see these pages:
