Those are extremely good scores
Seems like USCE is a must but I am having a hard time believing that all of the several 1000's IMG's that match every year actually have USCE.

The only reason why PD's ask for USCE is that they wan't the students to be aware of the american health system.

But yeah if ur scores r extra-ordinary than not having USCE in nt a prob

Hello everybody. Just wanted to ask. If you get matched to Preliminary IM, and then want to move to a categorical progrm, do you start of as a PGY-1 or do you upgrade as PGY-2.
Congrats Dr. Laura

May I ask, what school did you attend? I'm wondering if the school makes a difference because I'm an US IMG as well but not attending an offshore school
