Earlier I asked in these forums about the age as a limiting factor becoming a physician, and most people told that it should not be a problem. Now I have other, more complicated question: I am not native US citizen or permanent resident. As far as I know there is a posibility for foreign citizens finish their native country med schools, and the take USMLE tests (3 tests, difficult) and apply for residency in US hospitals. So far, I know 2 people from my country that succeeded in this way - they successfully passed those USMLE and got residency position. Maybe you can tell me more about such way of getting into US hospital ? It would be nice to hear from native US citizens.
