    Failed in Med School ...

    Advertisements



    Thanks for reading my post. This may sound a little straightforward but still I'm asking. I'm an Indian medical graduate passed out this year. I haven't appeared in any of USMLE exams yet but I want to. In my Med school I failed in Pathology and Social Medicine once. So I have bad academic records which is gonna reflect in Dean's Letter of Recommendation.

    My question is "even if I qualify USMLE what are my chanches of getting a medical residency in US with this bad academic records" ?

    If you get USMLEs >200 and get good letters of recommendations from attendings/consultants during the clinical years, I really doubt you'll have any real problem.

    I think it all depends on the recommendations you get

    Yeah, you can do anything you really put your heart into. Study your A off! And get recommendations from very respected people in the profession. Best of luck to you!
