    Looking for help picking a residency...

    Advertisements



    Hello,

    I've graduated two years ago from Med School in Portugal (Europe). Since then I've started clinical rotations in my country. I would like to do an ophtalmology residency in NYC, and I know I first have to get the ECMFG certification. What I would like to know is what are my real chances of getting that residency? Thank you all for your help and good luck.

    residency

    Ophthalmology is a highly competitive residency.Some IMGs do match every year ..without knowing your board scores it can not be said what your chances are.you would need to do very well on the test.I would suggest not limiting yourself to programs in the NYC area which are in big demand.You will have a much better chance of matching if you apply to a broad range of programs elsewhere in the US as well.
