Listening Gap Problems for the IMG!

I have graduated in 2005 and a bit worried of my prospects of landing a match even if I clear the steps.

Right now, I'm doing a PhD in Medicine in UK

Anyone with the gap problem?

Thanks in advance!

Stop It should not be considered a gap

You PhD from UK shouldn't be considered a gap in the CV.

I think you'll have a good chance of matching if you get high scores in the steps.
