Many IMGs get into neurology residency every year.

You need high USMLE scores, USCE, and good LoRs.

Research is not mandatory.

If you apply for Prelim IM, you can also apply to "advanced" neurology programs that start with PGY-2 at the same time.
However, the number of advanced neurology programs is less than the number of "categorical" neurology programs.
