IMGs have been getting in IM with 81 or scores below that. While higher scores offer more opportunities, a score of 81 is not a bad one. A better score in Step 2 could lift your average score up for some programs.

However, scores alone are not predictors of success in obtaining a residency position. US exp., visa, years since graduation, US LORs etc. also play their role.

Do as best as you can in Step 2 and you will be in a good position for residency.

Hi.....i'am IMG, Us citizen, I've been working for 2 years in a Hospital as a first assistant in Surgery.
Is there a possibility of getting into Pediatrics.
It was my first time taking the exam.
Some one help me with advice.

Hi
I think so you have great chances since you have been in THAT system .You know what I mean to say ?
also depends on your scores ,work hard and get high scores then you will definitely have NO problems at all since you are a US citizen as well so these are 2 plus points ,your good scores can be your 3rd plus points ,what else do you want ?
Best of luck !

hi nicky, could you tell me how one can get a postition in a hospital? I am thinking about possible backup plans in case I can not get into residency in the timeframe as I planned. Where can I find a hospital offering opportunities for IMGs (positions like assistants or whatever appropriate in that hospital). I am still doing my exams.

Hi Nicky,

Hi, I am IMG from Europe. I've just got my Step 1 score, which is very low [76]. Just starting to prepare to Step 2. I've finished my neurology residency and fellowship in my home country [10 years of experience], I've published approx. 25 articles in IF journals, I've got approx. 50 SCI citations. I'am currently doing a research in US as a postdoctoral fellow. I've been observing the clinics since last fall. Do you think I've got any chance for the match - for the neurology residency especially with the low Step 1 score? Please, give me your opinion. :?: :?: :| Got bless you.
