Any FMGs here match Med/Peds in recent years? I have a couple of questions for you.

Since the stats available on the Charting Outcomes aren't the best, given the small number of foreign grads that apply IM/Peds every year, I thought it would be best to ask more directly.

1) How much US Clinical Experience did you have? Did you do electives in both Medicine and Peds (in the states)?

2) What did the interviewers seem to care most about/what were the most frequent questions you were asked?

3) Did you match Med/Peds as a first choice, or did you take it as a backup in case your main IM or Peds choices didn't fall through?

4) Is your experience at your program positive, negative, or neutral? Why?
