Hi everyone
I am a postgraduate from India , worked in india for 14yrs as medical officer. now shifted to usa. step 1 score 235. now preparing for step 2. am confident of scoring fairly well, but I have no experience or connections in the us.
will my years of practice/job as govt. medical officer count for or against me in residency match?
I am on L2 visa(allowed to work). with green card in process.


Hi there!

I am taking MD final exams next week (Psychiatry) and will be starting my usmle prep thereafter. I am in the same boat! Don't worry, everyone told me just focus on your step scores, and if you have done your PG in Psychiatry, it will boost your CV!

235 is a excellent score for Psychiatry, I'd be happy with any score above 230 honestly. Don't worry, you'll get interviews!


thanks ubiq. That boosts my confidence.. just worried about the 14 years of gap!
