Hi. I wear the hijab(headscarf) and I’m not willing to give it up at all. I’ve always wanted to work in a stimulating environment like the United States and I also need to support my family in the following years. I was really looking forward to take my Step 1 next year till I came across some depressing headlines and comments full of hatred against muslims on social media, forums and on the internet in general. Ever since I’ve seen those, I’m considering staying back where I am. I really want to know from the residents out there, is it difficult to live in the US with the headscarf on? Should I really step back and stay away from the US if I want to continue wearing the hijab(headscarf)?

Im an IMG that graduated residency frm 2013. This was my favorite forum to goto back in the day. I happened to come across your post since Im helping my husband now.

Though the environment is starting to get bad here dont let it deter u because ure a hijabi. Its all taqdeer. I only started hijab in my 3rd yr of residency and was pretty scared about how ill get a job etc. But now that Im practicing I find I was overreacting. Yes, you do have to prove yourself more than others because of the hijab, but if you are intelligent and most importantly have a friendly personality that comes across, then you shouldnt inshaAllah have as much trouble as you think. Its still manageable. But I did grow up here, so I understand the customs here and what they are looking for in interviews. They dont want someone shy, or stand offish. They want someone who they can communicate with and whose friendliness shines through and someone who they can relate to.

Also the medical world have more open minded staff/ppl so less discriminatory. Just dont be lazy. Work hard while in residency. InshaAllah you will get it

Let's not kid ourselves - America is filled with racists. There's no point in denying that. You wouldn't believe how difficult it was to get a good start in couch cleaning, and it didn't matter how hard or smart I was working. You should value your identity and cut yourself loose from companies that refuse to recognize your value.

Hmm. They should respect you wearing a hijab like how you respect them.
