urology/surgery residency after fellowship

Postby endurance » Tue Jul 16, 2013 11:32 am

Hi,everyone... please give your precious advice. I have matched this June for a transplant fellowship starting 2014. I have completed my general surgery residency in my home country and want to know how to get into working in US/getting residency post fellowship.

My scores 87/87/CS and Step 3 in first attempt.

1. Will 2 years of US experience gained during fellowship help my application? Will it be helpful enough to overshadow my average scores.
2. Is it possible to do research/publication during fellowship to help me into residency?
3. I have heard of people doing lesser number of years in residency after doing fellowship? Is it possible..and how

Good job on getting fellowship positions before residency training. Typical scenario is passing USMLEs and applying for the Match first, going to the residency training, and then moving on to the fellowship.
1. Two years of US fellowship training experience are extremely valuable for your residency application. No doubts this experience will make your application very competitive.
2. Research work, publications may also add up to the impressive CV that you will have. You should discuss these options at your fellowship program and research such opportunities there.
3. I don't think so, but it depends. Some residency programs may take into consideration your fellowship experience and therefore you may qualify for PGY-2/3. It depends of a particular residency program, policies there, and the way PD reviews your profile.

This is a good forum about the IMG and hospitals in which workshops and training for new doctors trained. Hospital here you mention is good in environment and facilities. Thanks for sharing assignmentlabs.co.uk review and keep it up. This type of workshops serve very sufficiently to the people.
