Step 2 CS - failed twice

Hello Doctors,

Greetings for everyone.
I am posting this on behalf of my spouse.

The details are mentioned below.

IMG 2007 pass out.

Step 1 - 208 first attempt
Step 2 CK - 218 first attempt
Step 2 CS - failed twice unfortunately ( yet to take it again)

Experience
Physician - 4 years outside United States
Volunteered to see patients in free clinics in United States ( about 6 months).
Research - one year in Endocrinology with lots of patients hands-on
Research - currently in Derm with lots of patients hands-on

Green Card holder about to get US citizenship.

Goal:
1. To get more research experience
2. To get USCE
3. To pass step 2 CS
4. To get a decent score in Step 3

Please let me know what are the chances of getting in to residency ( IM/Ped/FM).

Thanks in Advance
Best Regards
Aspirer

You have to give more information, what did you apply for? how many places? any interviews? visa/no visa? what happened on step 2?

you need to pass step 3 to help
