Getting into Residency

The process for an internationally trained medical student or graduate is clearing all of the hurdles. Placement into a U.S. residency training program is very ominous and daunting. Do I take a board review course? What specialties should I apply to? What programs are "IMG friendly"? What is ERAS? How do I become ECFMG qualified? These are but a few of all the questions that must be addressed for one to have a legitimate chance of residency placement.
