1. I finished medical school last year in Nicaragua,
2. I hold US Citizenship and
3. I have not completed any USMLE steps.
4. I find myself currently searching for a residency, fellowship, internship or research opportunity.

5. Can I do a residency without having any steps of the USMLE?
6. Can I do a fellowship without having any steps of the USMLE?
7. Can I do internship without having any steps of the USMLE?
8. Can I do research without having any steps of the USMLE?

In response to your questions

You cannot apply for residency in the U.S. without ECFMG certification which requires completion of USMLE Step 1, Step 2CK and Step 2CS.
You cannot do a fellowship without ECFMG certification.
You cannot do an internship without ECFMG certification.
However research does not require completion of any of the USMLE examinations.
