standards stay in japan and practice there. if you want to come to america you need to adapt. and more to the point: that's why residency programs have specific guidelines and minimum requirements - to level the playing field so that people are hired based on universal criteria, such as scores, publications etc. no on some unspecified criteria that only you and some other japanese doctor understand, comprende? i think you are completely missing the point, and more so you are argumentative and stubborn - qualities that are not helpful in residency, i assure you. maybe you should actually spend some time in the states and get to know the culture that you want to be part of and see how it fits you before undertaking a residency search and making a commitment - just a suggestion. i have a japanese fellow and a japanese professor in my program, and they are very different from you, i am actually shocked at your attitude. those two are so correct and professional, they even speak english amongst themselves during work so that i am not left out, even though i told them many times i am fine with them speaking japanese in my presence if it makes it easier for them. and i would never dream of looking for doctors from my culture, it's juts not done. it's getting late here so good night to you
