Doctor Peres,

First of all your ECFMG Certification should be valid. What you can do is checking if you could take USMLEs again to refresh the exams and hopefully get better scores. That would increase your chances, as with the credentials you have now your Match chances are not very high.

In order to select the programs that you should focus on I suggest the stretagy of searching the programs before you apply, contacting them to get their feedback and also apply to the programs you qualify for
