    Is it possible like, getting into a full residency program unpaid i.e without a match? (with good usmle 1&2 scores + step3)
    I am a US citizen IMG, and planning to do radiology. I am not rich, but I have a private sponsor.
    If yes, what will the department take in consideration, terms....etc.
    What are the advantages/disadvantages from this residency?
    And does this apply on the fellowship too?

    thank you, I will look more into it.
  5. Good post by Winged Scapula above.

    Basically this is discouraged because you're basically trying to "buy" your way into a spot that doesn't yet exist. It's almost like a bribe.
