My son completed his Medical degree, MBBS, in India. However, he took 9 years to complete this 5 years degree.
Would this affect his chances of Residency placement, even if he scores well in all his USMLE tests?

Thank You Achilles7

What was the reason it took him 9 years?
Going from Canada to India.
Very different accents.
Lethargy, for sure.

Achilles7, would this affect his chances of getting accepted if he does well in his USMLEs?
Regards,
Kanti

As long as he has good scores, speaks English and interviews well, he shouldn't have a problem.

The number of years it took to graduate is not as important as the year he graduated. If he scores well on the USMLE and has sufficient USCE his chances will be higher that he will be matched.
