Colorado University of Colorado Pediatric Residency and IMGs

Hey guys

How can one find out if the university of colorado takes IMGs for pediatrics?
On their website they list their requirements but not sure if it is IMG friendly? anyone match there?

I also found this in addition:
All applicants are required to have completed at least 6 months of clinical training at an accredited US or Canadian Medical Center (to learn about the US system of medical care, electronic medical records and available technology) and to meet all Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) requirements. We prefer candidates with prior training and experience in a Pediatric environment, and expect Letters of Recommendation from Pediatric Attending Physicians. Small amounts of outpatient “shadowing” experience will not suffice.

Why do they always have requirements that are hard to fulfill? I mean 6 months ??

Arrow University of Colorado Pediatric Residency does not accept IMGs

In the case of University of Colorado Pediatric Residency Program that you referred to,
Here's the page
http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/co.../WhoWeAre.aspx

You can see in that page, there's only two IMGs (one from the University of Melbourne and the other from Peru) during the last three years.

This is a strong indication that the program is not at all IMG friendly. Perhaps, it's due to that 6 months of USCE requirement.

IMGs are advised to apply for programs that do accept IMGs, It's a waste of money to apply to programs that do not accept IMGs such as the University of Colorado.
