Is it possible to do a research fellowship after completing medical school and residency in another country? What are the limitations? My plan is to complete the research fellowship and then return to my country of origin.

Thank you.

yes of course. there are/used to be specific fellowships for foreigners. no one wants to do research here so at the level of fellowships they are fairly uncompetitive. you won't be able to apply for standard NIH fellowships however.
