Question IMG chances in getting ObGyn Residency?

Would like to know how difficult it is for an IMG to get an OBG residency. What must be the step scores & is it as tough as getting residency in radiology? have also heard there are more cases of litigation on IMG's pursuing surgical & obg branches? pls do help in clearing these doubts.

thanks in advance

In recent years, IMGs are having more and more access to ObGyn residencies. It's thought that this surge of IMG-friendliness of ObGyn field is due to the fact that more and more AMGs are steering away from it due to higher liabilities and more medico-legal issues associated with it.

As for the scores, there's no set score to say you can or you cannot. Although USMLE score are one of the major factors in determining your chances but there are many other variables such as your graduation freshness, prior experience, passing CS from first attempt, US LoRs, USCE, publications, interview performance, ...etc
