Could anyone tell me if a foreign trained Anesthesiologist, who has passed the USMLE's and is ECFMG certified, would be eligible to apply for a Critical Care fellowship in the US.??
Thank you or your thoughts,
But the fellowship scene in the US is still unclear to me...as some programs have specified that they would only take US trained graduates.....
Would the fact the programs go unfilled be reason enough for the programs to take in foreign trained MD's?
Is there a general policy that they do not accept foreign MD's (even if they are ECFMG certified) into their fellowship or is it just with a few programs?
Is the pay of the fellows provided by the NIH??...and is the fact the NIH not accepting to fund foreign grads be the reason for these programs not to accept foreign Anesthesiologists..?
Your thoughts please....
Certain states allow foreign trained physicians to obtain limited teaching licenses that allow them to work in academic hospitals in that state, with only their foreign residency training.
