Hi everyone,

I'm a second year medical school in Malaysia who is transferring to Dalhousie Medical School in Canada for clerkship years. I am planning to take USMLE steps and go to the USA for my residency.

So, I was wondering if international medical graduates (neither Canadian nor American) who graduated from Canadian med school are considered as AMG? or are we still in IMG category??

And does it increase the chances of me getting into a residency program if i am inside AMG category??

Please reply

You need to get above 95 to get into surgical residency.

Yes, Step 1 score is more important, for details read here
