    Specialist Residency after medical school

    Advertisements



    I heard that getting into specialist residency after medical school is hard for students studying abroad. I live in Canada and I want to go into neurology would it be hard for me to get into residency in either USA or Canada for that because I attended Ross?

    When i say neuro i mean neurologist.

    Thank you

    go to ross and look at the match list its on the website under the alumni section... we have a few neuro residents each year...

    i hope u mean neuro not neurosurg

    neurosurg is hard to get no matter where u go and from ross u will need a lot of luck and maybe a girlfriend whose daddy is a Program director to get in...

    i hope this answers ur question effectively.

    In talking to residency directors I can say that the foreign medical school stigma is getting less every year, but that all things being equal, a IMG will rarely get the spot. All this means is you have to beat 'em, we are taking a more difficult route, but are better for it in the end.
