MCAT is an exam to get you admitted to a US Medical school which you don't need as you are already in med school in your country.

Master in surgery is an academic degree not clinical and therefore you don't USMLE to do it.

You have to do USMLE if you want to do clinical training (residency) in USA after you graduate from your medical school.

You need to get very high scores (240+) in order to have a chance in getting surgical residency, for more information check Surgery-Match tag.
