I want to know what are the chance of getting into a surgical residency after finishing am Internal Medicine residency? or something as I really want to get into surgery in USA. The reason I am taking this route is because my score are 219/229, ECFMG certified, taking step 3 soon but I am 6 years out of medical school and not getting any younger. I have responsibilities , so have to foot the bills and cannot keep on working odd jobs forever. I am working research manuscripts with 3 surgeons in Canada and working as a clinical assistant at a family medicine clinic in Canada.
I am going to apply for preliminary spot in USA this year. I have one strong letter from a surgeon in USA, another decent letter. One good letter from Canada in surgery and also one good letter from a research mentor. But I want to keep my options open.
P.S. I know this not the norm but I dont have a choice.
