Hi wanted to know what are my chances of getting a Radiology Fellowship in Interventional Neuroradiology and also getting a board certification. This what I have done after high school.... I never did a Pre-Med degree.... so I don't know if thats good or bad?

MD/PhD --- Completed in 6 years (PhD in Molecular Biology/Genetics) from European University. (Austria)

MRCP (Membership of the Royal College of Physicians) Completed with 2 years of Postgrad training in the UK.

FRCR (Fellowship of Royal College of Radiologists) also completed with 4 years of Radiology Training. (actually in the 4th year now)

Don't have a CCT (certificate of completion of training).... but I don't want to specialise in the don't really care.... and Really want to specialise from the US in Interventional Neuroradiology .....

USMLE done just recently got Step1 score of 254 and Step2 CK 245....... planning the finish CS in the next 6 months........

Also did some courses form the Open University in the UK, while in training .... did enough part-time modules to get a BA/BSc..... in Mathematics/Physics...... Don't really know if its worth anything i mean its from the Open University, so not sure how much its worth on Paper .... but did gain a lot of valuable knowledge ....

I'm also thinking of Doing a MPhil from Cambridge in Philosophy of Science..... just because I really want to do it... don't know if I will get in.... but time will tell.....

So what do I need to do to get a board certified fellowship from the US ??.... by the way, i'm originally from Pakistan, just got my British passport.....
also could I get a H1B sponsorship?...... and how long will it take to get board certified?


Someone correct me if I am wrong, but you can't be board-certified in the US if you don't do residency there..However I heard that radiology is different in that if you can do 4 years of fellowships, in the SAME institute/program, you can be board-eligible, which means you can sit for the boards exam..

I don't know of anyone who did this, So if this info is wronf then please someone correct me..

All the best!
