I have a background of general surgery in India and had cleared USMLE step 1 and 2, CSA in 2002 and was ECFMG certified, got into prelim surgery residency program and did 2 years (both prelim) before getting into surgery research at a leading renowned program. Unfortunately I have failed to clear USMLE step 3 in 3 attempts and am out of the 7 year requirement. I have several papers in leading journals thanks to my research but would like to know if I have to repeat my steps 1 and 2 again to get into a residency program as I have not been able to get in. I'm desperate.
