I am an american IMG now working as a research assistant in neuroradiology at a major medical school in the midwest. I have been involved in research and should have a couple papers as a first author and some case reports (not first author). do you think that my publication history is enough? i am planning and hoping for a about 3 papers and 2 case reports by the end of next year with myself as a first author. i was told about doing observerships so as to obtain some US clinical experience, but my boss told me that he would add to the fact that i did also an observership (as i spend lots of time in the reading room.. watching people work). what else could anyone advise me to improve my chances?? my first and only love is RADIOLOGY.. i was thinking of doing an observership/ maybe try to sneak my way through an externship in medicine/ neurology.. Any further advice would be greatly appreciated.. thanks!
