What about interviews? Are you guys hearing from hospitals already? GL smiling face


Hi are all these calls or rejections. ? Please specify that too.


I have got interview calls from St.peters in New brunswick,NJ and Albany (but this program doesnt sponsor visas) I have got rejection from UTMB Galveston


i think albany sponsors visas.atleast j1.are u sure tasneem???


I got an IV from Albany too. They do sponsor visas but its J1 only.


I have started applying for Paeds as a backup specialty.. just in case i dont get IM; my specialty of first choice. I have applied to 1 few places in PA and NY. As my research did not revolve around Paeds, i dont have much info... Can anyone tell me which states / places are IMG friendly?

GL to all this week


NY, NJ, MI, PA are IMG friendly for peds.
It is interesting to note that people think peds is a lesser competitive specialty that IM.
I have never thought about it that way.


Paeds is certainly not less competetive..... the idea is to increase the number of applications... with my average scores; i have applied to very single program in IM whose criteria I can meet and so far I have 1 interview call... Majority applies to IM and eventhough quite a few Paeds programs require USCE or any CE, I have noticed ppl getting into Paeds when they have not been lucky in good(not average) IM programs..

Thats how I feel... may be wrong though


Most of programs in pedtiarics do not sponsor H1 b visas.


i called the Albany program coordinator,she said they dont sponsor any visas,but they do accept J1 visas,she said ECFMG has to sponsor.


Hi Tasneembanu, have you scheduled your Albany IV?
I scheduled mine for 5th of Jan.
