Hello Dr Rock
I finished IM residency last year and am working as Assistant Professor in a University.
I have been very interested in anesthesia but at that time, as an IMG, I just took the first residency spot due various reasons that apply to IMG ( visa, family, US $ was expensive for me to sustain without me working, no other opportunities etc )
My stats are 89,85, 80 all 1st attempt, US + Canadian exp and now am Board Certified in IM.
Do you think I stand any chances of going into anesthesia ( esp with those kind of scores, usually anesth applicants have v. high USMLE scores ) ? Is doing a 2nd residency viewed poorly upon ?
Thanks for your honest input.
