No. That's not correct.

You need at least 280 in Step 1 and Step 2 CK and pass CS with high performances and you also need 2 years US Clinical Experience and after all that you will get only one interview and you have to compete with 1310132 IMGs for that one seat

Its not like that.....265 is very high score....u can make it ur target but if u score less than it , u still can get into residency......there is nothing like lowest score to get residency but u definitely need above 230 to get into some good residencies.......thats what I know......

As far as i know,the rule is yet to be finalized. may be some time in future it might happen...there are lots of ifs and buts..if they want us to work for 5 yrs after our training first they need to recognise USA degree..The process started by forming a committee in 2006 or 2008(doesnot remember exactly) by our Govt. to recognise post graduate training of 10-12 countries(US,UK,Aust/Newzealand,Germany france,canada,s'pore to name a few) in order to brain gain, but as of now even that has not happened...
if anyone has more info pls provide.
