HAVE TO, HAVE TO get into an Int Medicine residency program in 2003........preferably in the NY, NJ, PA area. Qs are:

    c) What have been the trends over the past year or two regarding FMGs getting into residency programs?

    I know there's one at Our Lady of Mercy Medical Center in the Bronx (NYC) which takes lots of Indian FMGs. It's affiliated with New York Medical College and the director's name is Dr. Pitchumani (I believe). Good luck!
