Hospital Harvard and Johns Hopkins for IMGs!

hey guyz m just wondering is this is possible..

Can I (or any IMG) do residency at well known colleges of US like Harvard, Hopkins etc? can I do in any faculty?

One more thing is if I want to do residency in some ''X'' program and i do elective in that ''X'' program, will it increase my chances of admission?

Thanks in advance~~

Yes, it's possible that IMGs do residency in elite programs such as Harvard and Hopkins but it's very difficult and you need to be very highly competitive such as super high scores, MPH, PHD, USCE, research, publications, ...etc

Yes, when you do electives in a program it increases your chances there as you will get LoRs from them and build some connections. But note that am saying "increases your chances", I did not say guaranteed.

Hey ,
I was wondering if you need to finish getting certified by the ECFMG by Jan 31 2015 if you are applying for 2016 , to Johns Hopkins.
I am an IMG and will possibly be getting ECFMG certified by August 2015.
