Now you come back to the States but you don't get matched into any residency, even family practice or internal med. What are your options now? What can you do with an MD degree that's not accredited by US institution? I would think you could get a job working in research but it's probably highly unlikely and your MD degree wouldn't even count. It's like getting a research job with a bachelor's degree. Has anyone been in this situation? If so, what are you doing now? I'm sure there are people out there who are/were in this situation. I mean not all graduates of carib school get matched into a residency. Right?
