Not necessarily. To the OP, what are your Board scores? Grades? Research? Letters of recommendation?Originally posted by cedricw
There is no way of sugarcoating this, but no there is no hope. As an FMG you may be able to get a gen surg spot, but ENT and other competitive fields are pretty much out of the question.
Doesn't ENT go through the SF Match?Originally posted by @70mphC2005--->
you can check www.nrmp.org to get match statistics. i just briefly reviewed it and i think there was 1 fmg that matched this year in ent and 1 fmg that matched last year. so yes it does happen, but i don't know what kind of students these are that do match
Hi there. It seems we are in the same boat. I am an IMG with scores of 96 and 95 in step 1 & 2 respectively. I have been working in Otolaryngology for the last 10 years. I have yet to apply for a residency. How many programs did you apply to and what criteria you used to select your list of programs?sdn2002 said:My background is:
Previously finished Otolaryngology in my home country.
Published 6 articles in US ENT journals.
Tried before once but got zero invitation for interviews.
Have visa requirements.
Any further suggestions?
Can I just work as a PA in ENT?
thanks for all your suggestions.
