Change of speciality


#1

Hi !
I am an IMG, having completed my Internal Medicine residency in my home country 3 years ago. Have written step 1 and step 2 CK with scores in the 240s. I’m currently working as a physician. Over the last few years, I have felt that I will perform better in a research / lab-based field and want to apply for Pathology residency. Will require a visa as well. Have a couple of publications and 3 paper presentations. What can I do to increase my chances of matching into Pathology residency

You are heading towards the right direction already. You will need to show extensive work on Pathology and especially research which you are already doing. Now you must collect impressive LoRs and write a strong personal statement for Pathology.
