This is definitely attainable. Your score is awesome.I'm going for a clerkship in Pediatrics at Weill Cornell next month and in the future I would like to apply for a residency in Peds only.
I hope this will improve my chances. Would like to know your views on it.
Thank you so much for the reply
This was very helpful and I sure as hell am going to study hard for step2. Thank you very much.New york wow, congrats to you!
The average mark it seems in terms of Pediatrics for US seniors is a mark 217. Your mark is 225! your chances are very good. Heres the Link to there USMLE average thing that im refering to (Its also in the 2010 version of First Aid on page 12) http://www.nrmp.org/data/chartingoutcomes2007.pdf
But there is an increasing number of hospitals that are looking at your step 2 scores more than the step 1 scores now. But doing your clerkship in new york absolutely boosts your chances! If they like you, they till put you on the top of there Match choice!
So make sure to do well on your Step 2 Also!
Thank you. This does boost up my moraleThis is definitely attainable. Your score is awesome.
Apart from super highly competitive specialties (such as plastic, neurosurgery, ENT) no residency program put a filter higher than 95. So if you apply to pediatrics your score will put you at the top of their list, no doubt about it.
Congratulations for the great score
