Hey Everybody long time viewer first time poster. I wanted to know if anybody thinks I have a chance at matching into Ortho or Urology? I know they are different, but I really like them both. Just some info about me:
I am and IMG born in the US went to Ross currently in 3rd year.
what should I do to get matched in orthopedics ? I am an international medical student with no green card or u.s citizenship?is that possible to get matched in orthopedics?
what scores required?
what us clinical experience required?
what other things needed in application?
I'm a PhD graduated from Cairo University, Egypt. I have over 10 years in practicing active orthopedic surgery. I want to have an observership in a well-known US hospital. I'm not planning to move to the US so I don't have any USMLE exams scores.
I just need someone to point me to...
I am an IMG from India in 3rd yr of med school. I'll be taking my step 1 after the electives (electives in yr 2013). my field of interest are orthopedics and internal med (in order of preference). can anyone tell me......
a)what are the mecca (i mean best places/cities) for orthopedics and...
People here say orthopaedics is near on impossible for IMG, however according to NRMP 2009 (last one I can find with specialties individually examined):
average USMLE score for step 1 for matched IMG applicants= 226
average USMLE score for step 2 for matched IMG applicants= 228
I've done my post graduate M.S in Orthopaedics.
I am doing my private practice in India.
I am not satisfied with the work and am not getting paid for the hard work I'm doing.
Do I see a better future after giving USMLE?
I'd like 2 thank u 4 ur great efforts Sabio..
Just wanna ask u if it is practical to think abt orthopeadic surgery in USA as an IMG..do elective and research? I found that u replied to dr-dana as regard ophthalmology, can I follow the same steps for ortho residency?
