Could you also give your USMLE scores? I think it would give a much better picture. Thanks.

Transitional year in New York infact is quite competitive..just because all the AMGs who get advanced positions want an easy intern year and transitional year is considerable more cushy than the preliminary medicine...but still you may try.. I am not sure abt the visas though... as I am going to join on EAD.

As you must have read in the posts above...it seems it helps more if you do an year of research in the speciality of your choice at a program u are interested in..than the intern residency year..if u want rads etc..even then its way toooo difficult for IMGs..

anyways no harm in trying..as I am..

Best of luck!

Hey..you have good scores..getting a transitional year wont be difficult for you if you arent particular abt good location.Having a radiology residency along with good scores and some research will definitely help.

Ofcourse doing a research here in US with good Radio PD will be a big plus if you can afford to spend an year doing that without being paid(paid research jobs are few & infrequent)

Transitional year can be surgery dominated or medicine dominated..Most programs are medicine dominated thoughyou can check from their websites about the curriculum..in a transitional surgery year you have 4-5 months of surgery rotations and the some IM, EM & 3 elective months whereas in transitional medicine you have 4-5 medicine months and then few months of electives.

Hope that helps.
