The both of you should be fine.

Numerous AMGs, FMGs and IMGs match each year with multiple attempts and lower scores.

Keep in mind that USMLEs makeup 30% of your ERAS application while 60% is directly related to hands-on US clinical experience. Your CV, Personal Statement, US Clinical Rotations, Clinical Evaluations, LORs and ERAS Application should highlight all US training and experience.

Make sure to remain competitive by completing as you study and take USMLEs by completing Physician supervised insured hands-on clinical rotations in the US. Securing Clinical Evaluations and LORs from US Physicians for hands-on clinical rotations completed and related to the specialty applying to will also help.

Im sure you will do well on Step 2 CK and CS.

Are your LORs from US Physicians and related to hands-on clinical rotations completed under their supervision?

If you are a Canadian resident then it is much easier for you to come to the US for hands-on clinical experience. Dont make the mistake of dedicating 1-2 years to only USMLEs. Residency program dont like to see 3-6 month gaps between hands-on clinical experience.

If you are not working as a physician outside of the US one of the best options for IMGs is to complete 1-2 hands-on clinical rotations in the US as they prepare and take USMLEs. After passing Step 1, Step 2 CK and CS completing an additional 2-4 hands-on clinical rotations in the US is also beneficial.

This way you are able to show a steady amount of US clinical experience.
