    He would apply for a Hand fellowship like any other physician. The NRMP has fellowships listed in Hand at several US facilities...go to http://www.nrmp.org and follow the links to Residency/Fellowship training.

    Kunz and Kleinert in Louisville, Kentucky is probably the most known for accepting foreign trained fellows - about half of their yearly contingent of hand fellows are IMGs. I do not know whether or not they require ECFMG certification - if so, this is a long haul, but information can be had at www.ecfmg.org

    Best of luck...

    BTW, moving this to General Residency Forum...
