As a Chinese in the residency program, I also think that it might be easier for me with a CHINESE LOOK doctor. I am wrong. A doctor is Chinese, born and raised from Philipine, she is very strict with me. thinking that my English and knowledge should be the same as when she was an intern in the US. The differences are when she was an Intern, she just graduated from Philippine,speaks English, studied medicine in English. But me, studied English in Chinese, stayed away from medical school more than 10 years, not speak English well. She FAILED me in that rotation.
You are the only one who can help you. It might be better if your attending born and raised from the same country, going through the same path, then they might help you.
ABC (American Born Chinese)doctor, their behavior and thought are the same as the other attending, they did not know how much suffering you have gone through, they do not care. They wanted their color to be white during their growing up.
If you want Japanese group, I know that in UT southwestern, there are lots of MD PHD from Japan, doing research there.
Go to the website www.utsw.edu then go to research section, check every lab, there are Chinese and Japanese staffs, e-mail them and asked them what to think about doing residency in the US.
Chinese and Japanese are doing research in the US medical center, because their English needs time to develop and spend more time prepare for USMLE. Unlike Indian or others from English popular country, they prepare USMLE form the first year in med school. So only a few doctors work in the lab. They prefer to get H1 J1 in the residency, then earning big money as an attending waiting for green card. While Chinese and Europeans entered residency with green card or citizenship, in their 30s, 40s 50s.
Eva lute yourself and choose the right path, other Japanese doctors are successful does not mean you will be good. English is the problem.
If US only allow Spanish in the hospital, then all the Indian or others, can not be here that much. They have the advantage in English, not much extra effort to take to read and speak, even though their pronunciations (stress each syllabus) needs to improve in some way.
