Default CS passed in second attempt + CK failed! what should I do??!!

Hello everyone, I need your help please
I'm an IMG... I passed my CS last year from the second attempt... but I decided to go on with the steps... However, I recently got my CK score... I failed

should I continue with the steps? what are the chances for me to get a pediatric or family medicine residency in the US? should I lose hope?

what are the alternatives, like Master in Public health? health adminstration? and so?
please help me with your ideas and experience... I really need it

Yes, you should continue,(mine kinda similar story) because you never know how it ends.I told myself " you have to go to the very end and see, because if you drop it now , you will always have regrets and doubts , what if.......?" So, never give up! and good luck!

Dont worry. try to complete CK and step 3 with good marks. Also, Try to do some research in US and get some USCE experience. And try to impress the guys where you will do research. Build some inside connections and apply in the same place. This will take some time before u will get a match. But if you are crazy enough, you can DO IT. I believe u will get it.

Hey, I work for a hospital and I hear from residents and fellows incredible stories pretty often.Just one example.We had a fellow couple years ago and he showed me a pic of his friend ans then said" He is 40 y.o, failed once Step 1 and once Step 2CK, now getting his residency in FM", so I believe its hard, but not impossible! So, go for it!
