My country has a few ACGME international-certified residencies. If I complete, say one year of residency here, then apply for the match in the US, would program directors see that as an asset? (assuming I'm also applying in the same specialty) I know I'll have to start the first year again, so I'm not even gonna ask if I can skip to 2nd yr. I'm just guessing that since I had experience in a similar setting, they would see that one year as a good thing. Anyone have any idea about this?
