    What are my chances?

    Advertisements



    Hi. I am thinking about applying to Jagiellonian University Medical College. But I am wandering what are my chances to get an Anesthesiology Residency in the US after graduation. I've looked at a lot of threads and I see that getting a family medicine or internal medicine residency after JUMC is not too difficult. But I am really interested in Anesthesiology. Currently I am a senior at University of California Davis majoring in Microbiology. I have a competitive GPA and MCAT for US medical schools, but I would really like to go to the medical school in Europe. So if anyone knows if it is possible to get an Anesthesiology Residency in the US after graduation, I would really appreciate for any news on this topic.

    Well as I like to say, anything is possible. There have been anesthesia matches in the past but it is much more difficult being an IMG vs. a US grad. Unless you have some awesome connections, for the competitive specialties some programs won't even look at IMGs for their residency spots. If you really are as competitive as you say you are then stay Stateside. You will need to ace the Steps either way, but graduating from a US school will give you a huge advantage come ERAS time.

    Having said that, I would still highly recommend the program at Jag to anyone who was set on studying medicine in Europe.
