I am an International medical graduate, US permanent resident. I applied for residency previous year with the following credentials:
Step 1 251
Step 2 CK 244
Step 2 CS Second Attempt
No US clinical experience
I applied for residency with failed CS in ERAS. I applied to 46 pathology programs and 53 Internal Medicine programs. Out of that I got 5 calls from pathology and 2 calls from internal medicine. I got ECFMG certified in December 2012. I matched to a university pathology program. I would not say it is a top program but it is ranked somewhere at number 50 according to internet sources.
I have heard that current pathology market is really poor. People do not get a job even after fellowship. Should I try to switch to medicine? If yes, what are my chances of matching again next year to family medicine, internal medicine or neurology?.
