It is definitely possible for you to still match if you are able score competitive scores on your other step exams, with no failed attempts. You can also increase your chances of matching if you obtain US clinical experience. Hands-on externships at university-based hospitals are the best forms of USCE to enhance your candidacy.

This is some advice that may or may not be helpful.

First: you will have to do well on your step 2 exams
Secondly: possibly the most important- get US hospital rotation experience. If you are unable to do that, then apply to externships. Having those US medial connections is very important to improve your chances.

You need to be very familiar with how US hospitals work in comparison to other regions around the world.

Keep focused and believe in yourself.

Good luck!
