Is it difficult to get an OB/GYN residence coming from a Caribbean school? Specifically a hospital in the Northeast.
I am not quite sure about OBGYN becoming more competitive (as I have not kept up with the recent trends) but I suspect you won't have any problem. Most American medical grads realize the medicolegal implications and overall poor status of pursuing OBGYN at the present time so I believe it is very reasonable as an FMG to pursue this. You WILL find a spot, I guarantee you. Have you ever considered anesthesiology? An excellent field, procedure oriented, friendly residents, happy people (something I rarely came across during my training) I believe there are still spots that FMGs can land. Just one person's opinion.
Anesthesiology has indeed become more competitive during these past two years. Good hours, interesting procedures, reasonable lifestyle, and GREAT compensation are the reasons why this field has become more competitive. Even with this trend, Carrib grads still match into Anesthesiology every year (especially schools like SGU, ROSS, and AUC). Also, I think that the recent gain in popularity for Anesthesiology is pretty normal. The wheel does go around and when the compensation starts to decrease, the popularity will suffer as well. Well, what do I know. I am not even a medical student yet.
