    I am not an IMG, US trained, but when I was interviewing, I did notice that there were IMG's at emory and UAB. I believe there were some up at Mayo as well.

    What I was also looking for is what kind of international applicants match into these programs?? What are their credentials??

    I have seen IMG's at some top programs... your USMLE scores will definetly help you and so will your research... another big factor is your actual school. PD's may view diff foreign schools differently.... for example carrib grads that come from the bigger name schools have an easier time than those who come from schools that have recently been accredited by WHO.

    Regardless, give it a shot! and good luck... I saw plenty of IMG's on the interview trail and at some of the best places (including BID, MGH, Cornell etc.... )

    GOOD LUCK :)
