Doctor, the only disadvantage is you being an old graduate. Many programmes prefer fresh graduates! Surgery is difficult for international student, you should have some clinical experience in Surgery out there! Being a surgeon in India may help you strengthen your CV and interviews Best of luck

thanks for advice...
appreciated...
yeah.. i heard surgery is difficult for IMGs..
what if i have to change for ..say..family medicine or internal medicine?
then having clinical experience outside of us will do anything...????
or being a surgeon in india will be taken against if i have to apply for above mentioned branches( because of branch differences)...-
