    US citizen in Indian Med School

    Advertisements



    I am an American born citizen currently studying at Deccan College of Medical Science in Hyderabad, India. I am now in final year with my exams coming up in October. What would be the next best step in my career to ensure that I get a residency in the US? I don't want to do my housejob here, can I do it in America? Would that count as me doing a year of clinical rotations and therefore increase my chances of getting a good residency? What about my USMLE, when should I take that? Before, after or while doing rotations? I know that IMGs usually get stuck with residencies in internal med, family practice, obgyn, psychiatry or pediatrics, but I'd like to do ENT. How can I increase my chances of getting into an ENT residency program? I know these are a lot of questions, but I'd love any advice. Please make sure its accurate though. Thanks.

    Yes you can do your internship in US provided your medical college in india allows it and you are able to find a hospital in US that is ready to accept you. Few students from my college who were on NRI seat did 9 months of their internship in US. 3 MONTH of community medicine posting is compulsory and is to be done in india only.(accoding to our univ).

    Yes it will definily improve your chances of getting residency.

    Take USMLE only when you feel you are ready for it.
    Most people take it in the end of their internship or after their internship. I t depends on how much time you get to study during your internship.
    you never know what you can become........

    I am in the same situation as yours. I am planning to do my medicine here in India,(though i am a permanent resident of U.S) so can you please tell me what are the exams I will have to take after I do my medicine here in India.
    I would be very thankful of you.
    Please reply
