hey guys I'm an international medical student from Syria and I'm wondering if I have a chance in an ortho residency.
I have 268 on my step 1 and I think I can get a similar score in step 2. I'll be doing step 3 too.
i'm doing 5-6 months of electives this summer/fall then I'm graduating, one of my electives is an AI in ortho .( how many months of the 6 should I dedicate to ortho/general surgery ? I need to make sure I can get internal medicine in case ortho is as impossible as it seems for IMGs)
after I graduate I can do a year of research since i can't apply for this year's match.

I think my problem is the non-american medical school (syria ?)

what do u think ?
