Hello fellow doctors,

Im an IMG , graduated last year doing my internship year now , I recently received my step 1 score I got 263 , planning to take CK soon ,Im really interested in Ophthalmology , I have one publication as a first author it is a case report but not in Ophthalmology , I have 1 month USCE in Ophthalmology and I have 3 LORs form US faculty members.

It's really difficult but can be done. A friend of mine matched to ophthalmology as an IMG. It'll take research and connections though.
