I am a Final MBBS student in India. I havent done any research yet, but I am still looking for opportunities. Any advice on that will be appreciated.

I am interested in pursuing Orthopaedic Surgery in US, and so wud lyk to know the US Med schools who r IMG friendly, and how to improve my credentials.

Also i wud lyk to know how much tym does a Research Elective need to b in this speciality, and how I can do it.

Thank you.


Orthopedics is a field that many wish to follow and us such is a highly competitive area in which to gain a residency, many prospective residents becoming disappointed every year. Being accepted by a ACGME (Accreditation council for Graduate Medical Education) you need perfect orthopedic residency personal statement writing service to get residency in US.

Thanks buddy, but I was hoping if you could tell me more or point to some source of information- for example, is it worth trying for ortho? Do IMGs get selected? Or are the chances <1%??


Not sure if you are still looking for externship/USCE but there is availability currently in Ortho Surgery/Sports Med in Atlanta.
