Hey guys… I heard different answers to this question. I understand that US Medical Graduates usually do not apply to many programs for obvious reasons, but as far as being an International Medical Graduate (IMG) what is the recommended number of programs I should consider per specialty? What if my credentials do not allow me to apply to the minimum recommended? anyone? or @OliviaM much appreciated!
