Info Looking for Ortho residency!

Good day to you
I have finished my MBBS from india and my internship as well. wasted a year trying to prepare for the indian entrance exams and apparently things arent going too great with the INdian system of post grad entrance. I aspire to do my post graduation in ortho. Is giving the USMLE worth, if i want a residency in the ortho field?

please advice.

no man. to be frank, its impossible to get ortho in us.

unless of course you work and do research in ortho for many years with lots of publications; and with high scores in all your steps.

even after all that, it is hard for an img.

just stating the facts.

Well they say surgical discliplines are hard to get into but why not give it a try, if it your dream and passion ,I encourage you to go ahead,but you have to commit to releazing that dream.The road may be long and lonesome but sometimes in life that is what really fulfills us taking the road that few pple take or one that pple are scared to take
