Instructions and Help about Visa for medical residency in usa

Okay so we're going to answer the following questions how to get a fellowship in the US without doing a residency how to match into fellowship without going through resonance in the u.s. how to do a specialty fellowship in the u.s. when you have already completed our residency or a fellowship in some other country no surprise but this is actually a common question that I have been asked at least a couple of times in this two past month so when I make a video out of it okay so you can watch and read this on the i'ma tracker dotnet website or the Facebook page for the I met tracker medication list and reminder app and the Cohn MD comm Facebook page and the doc and YouTube channel all links below end of commercial all right so it seems that there are a lot of people who have already completed their residency or may have also specialized in any given field of medicine and want to gain some u.s. clinical experience or an advanced qualification in the US I have known people who did take this route what actually was in radiology the other in physical medicine and Rehab and another in anesthesia it appears to my knowledge that if you want to have any experience in the US you need to be EC SMG certified that means you will need to go through the United States medical licensing exams and the u.s. Emily but this will likely not be as straightforward as applying for the match such as for the residency or even for a regular fellowship you will have to research individual especially programs and you can find that information on the a Reyes website and look for participating programs and specialties before fellowship have to contact them directly one by one have your CV ready and updated call them and email them directly on the contact information that's provided on the ER AF website give them detailed information on your qualifications and your eagerness to be part of that fellowship and all the scales as you can possibly bring to the program so basically you have to market yourself you have to ensure your skills you have to have extensive I mean if you have extensive research experience then that's going to be a plus and your risk research skills may be something that they are looking for and you have to try to get them to want to take you and you will have to try to make it as easy for them as possible there may be visa issues involved they may have some additional costs here there there were also be extensive paperwork that may be involved but as you can see this would be going through a process that is not normal but you can talk to enough people and encourage them and show them that yes you are the person that they want then they may be willing.


Which is the best way to immigrate to Canada? I want to live and work in Canada permanently.
Be careful now.The other respondents all want you to spend money.Don’t waste your money on agents or lawyers, the Canadian immigration selection system is set up for you to do-it-yourself and based on a point system, greatly favouring the young and the best educated immigrants.It is easy to find out where you may fit in, what kind of visa to apply for and how long the process will take. Spend the next 15 min CAREFULLY reading and answering all the qustions on this web-page.Do you want to come to Canada, or extend your stay?It takes from one to five YEARS to get a visa after you have submitted a COMPLETE application, with every single sheet filled in CORRECTLY, so be patient. The total costs, including your medical examinations and more, is in the order of CAD 1,500 to CAD 2,000.Also, start saving your money. You must prove that you have the equivalence of CAD 12,500 for a single person, more for a family, BEFORE you will get your visa. All immigrants are expected to have enough money to look after themselves for the first few months.Remember, having an agent, lawyer or anyone else “helping” you will not make the process faster. It may even slow it down as they draw out the process to be able to charge more money…Welcome to Canada.P.S. There is no “best way”, only a correct way and it is NOT FAST or simple.
Is it better to go to medical school at USMLE or NEET? After graduating from an Indian medical school, is it a good idea for a doctor to do his/her residency in the US, or should they stay in India?
Lets start with the first and basic question, that is which one is better..We'll take factor by factor...1. Home advantage. With AIPG you have an advantage of home country, being close to family - Its very hard to spend years abroad and many students become home sick because you don't find many people with our culture. Students, too much attached to their families might find it very difficult there when you celebrate Diwali/Holi/Eid alone. But then Indians abroad do form their own little groups and celebrate all festivals together.2. There is a risk of being treated as 2nd citizens at the USA. But then regional, caste and creed considerations do exist in India too and sometimes are grave enough. I know people who had to leave their PG seats when limits of discrimination were crossed. So its not a very strong factor.3. Risks. In AIPG, Selection means a seat and If u get a seat, u will surely complete a PG. But clearing MLE even up to Step 2 CS doesn't guarantee a residency slot. You may return bare handed or may have to compromise with a branch you don't like, for the whole life.4. Expenditure. At least in the short run, expenditure for AIPG runs only in few thousands. But for MLE it is in the tune of 5-8 lacs (details later). But again in the long run MLE people earn lot lot more than their Indian counterparts. So it can be considered to be an investment.5. Visa? Mera no aayega? This is the most critical factor for MLE. You may be denied visa even after getting 99 in both steps, that too for no reason at all. The situation these days is pretty rosy, but we gotta remember the fact that its very very unpredictable. 12 months or so from now when we apply, what the situation may turn out to be, only god knows. So never decide solely on the fact 'My senior got the visa, so will i'. Same is true for vice-versa.6. Working conditions. MLE definitely scores over AIPG on this aspect. You'll get very good working conditions even at the lowest ranked program at US. No need to comment on the situation in india. Still i'd like to remind you here you'll be faced with lack of infrastructure n lab facilities, poor clientelle, general bias AGAINST medical community, Very frustrating payscales, broken/malfunctioning instruments, filthy hospitals. Conditions in private setup are better but then most people prefer govt jobs. In private sector you earn well only as a consultant, buts it would be 7-10 years at least before you get a consultant job at a good hospital.A distinct disadvantage in US is that you have to be thouroughly professional. Any laxity and you are always at the risk for litigations (specially true in surgical branches). You should be willing to give best service to the patient there cos pts there are well educated and well informed. Don’t forget that the number of litigations in India is on a sharp rise. Every other day you can read about patients, relatives, local politicians storming and mobbing the hospitals on small so called lapses. Episodes of manhandling of docs is also increasingly common.7. Earnings. Do i need to elaborate??? In the US, even during residency (in the tune of $45k per annumn) you earn more than most of us would earn here 5 years post-PG. Its very frustrating when during PG you're given 30-35K and you have to look towards your parents for support. Or if you do SR-ship (Senior Residency) it runs from 55k-75k at the max.Post residency pay scales in the US are in the tune of $ 1 lac plus p.a.8. Job satisfaction. Well its very subjective and variable. But most people who are in the field agree that it’s highly frustrating in majority of India. According to them Few reasons why:* Yours pt has more faith in local quack/ compounder than you* Pt Compliance is very poor due to illiteracy , poverty etc. But the blame of failure of treatment will always be on you.* If you prescribe an investigation it’s always unnecessary in pts view* Indian pts are highly reluctant to pay your meagre consultation fees* Even after specialising you have to work as a GP because of lack of facilities you can't make specific diagnosis or perform big procedures (barring big centres)* Pay scales are not commensurate with the quality of your qualification and workThere are hundreds more. In summary, here you feel incapable of applying the hard earned knowledge properly leading to dissatisfaction.While in US, you get paid well, plus ample facilities at most hospitals n literate pts. who don’t worry about expenses (also due to health insurance) allow you to try to prthe best treatment according to your judgement.9. MCI Recognition. MCI doesn't recognise PG from US, so you would be counted as an MBBS in govt. setup, even after residency from US. So your scope in India is restricted to private hospitals. Its a good option but competition among US returned docs is increasing day by day, so it might not be a cakewalk on return from US.10. Time spent. Well its a big issue at hand. Definitely here you have a chance to get into PG early concurrently with your batch mates. While if you go for MLE, you might be delayed by 2 years. By the time you’ll join your residency your friends myt be in final year PG. But i look at it differently, In india we myt start the race early but what'll be the situation only 5-6 years from now. With the kind of earnings in US you'll have accumulated more money than your friends here, even after deducting what you'd spend for MLE.Careerwise, as far as i know, a fresh PG from US wil get at pays least equal to, if not more, than an Indian PG after doing SRship for 5 years, of course only in private hospitals.11. Choice of branch. Well if you are hell bent on surgical branches, reconsider your decision for MLE cos its tough to get them (not impossible mind it). To get them you need very high scores, good LORs (Letters of Recommendation), USCE (US Clinical Experience), some research background etc. Even if you take surgical branch, you might be a bit discriminated (not in all programs), plus Asians are more at risk for litigations. I know a senior who left Surgery within 2 months due to aforesaid reasons.12. Exam itself. Well MLE is definitely easier than AIPG. MLE study material is:* Significantly Less exhuastive* Less ambigous* Clinically oriented* More of conceptual* Hence involves less crammingSo, if u find cramming difficult, love clinical cases, have spent more time at wards than at your study table, you are more likely to love studying for MLE.13. Indian PG + prep for MLE simultaneously? It requires a lot of patience for MLE aspirants specially cos lot of risks are involved at multiple points. Plus its very very tough to prepare for AIPG and MLE simultaneously, both might get spoiled cos remember, in MLE scores are very very important n you can't improve scores once you’ve cleared a step.Yes, starting PG and then preparing 4 MLE is possible and many people do it but it is associated with following difficulties:* You gotta prepare for AIPG if you don’t get selected this year, which means 1 additional year.* During PG its hard to find time to study, of course depends on branch and college* You won't be able to join any coaching if reqd.* A small disadvantage is that a few programs prefer recent medical graduates or at least who have passed within past 2 years. This incurs a loss of at least a few more programs which u can apply for.Now lets take various issues in a bit more detail. I’ll start with finances cos they appear to be very important for most of us.How much money needed for USMLE?A rough rough estimatestep 1- 880$step 2-880$step 2 CS- 1535$step 3 - 830$Study material - 30k (excluding coaching)Online mock tests - 6-12k per stepAirfares - 50k (economy class for one round trip), double if u plan 2 come back to india in betweenApplications for residency - 60 kCoaching at Kaplan for 1 step • 60k (not very sure for individual steps)Commuting within US for interviews, exams etc • 50kSundry (like ISD calls, visits to us consulate, booze etc.) • 40kStay in US for 6 months - 200k (If u know someone, at whose place you can stay, it might be much less cos it forms the major chunk of living expenses)Attorney fees H1B visa processing • about 60kTotal (excluding coaching, online mock tests, H1B attorney fees) = approx. 6 lacs INRThese all expenses are valid if you clear everything in one attempt, otherwise add accordingly.But remember this is just an investment if you get a residency. You can cover the money in 1-1.5 years.How much time?Well that’s pretty subjective again. Still I’ll outline average suggested time frames for a good preparation. These are based on average of 6-8 hours of thorough studies a day (adjust according to your schedule)Step 1 • 5-7 monthsStep 2 CK - 4-6 monthsStep 2 CS - 45-60 daysStep 3 - 2 months (I’m not very sure about this)Now this totals to 15-18 months. But you gotta know a few facts:* To be able to apply to max no of residency positions you should have cleared all steps (Up to Step 2 CS) by mid-September.* Interviews are conducted around Jan-Feb period. So its no use even if you complete your steps in Feb or April for that matter. You’ll have to wait till next year’s match. This is the dilemma for many like me who have decided at this point. We can’t be eligible for the match of 2022. We’ll have to wait till 2022. which IS a long time..Visa of Step 2 CS?Toughest question! First I’ll talk about visa for Step 2 CS. Its usually the biggest hurdle. You can be denied visa even after getting 99 in both steps without any obvious reasons. It depends totally on luck. I won’t go deep in technical details. Usually when you apply for a visa, you are given B1/B2 (which one of the two I don’t know) tourist visa which can be given for month to many years multiple entry. All depends on your luck. But the factor which is most important in getting a visa is your ability to convince the Visa Officer (VO) that you will surely come back to India once your purpose is achieved)The VO believes that every visa applicant is a potential immigrant unless convinced otherwise. The arguments in favour of the fact that you’ll come back may be:- Your or your parents• fixed assets in India- If you are the only son, it’s a plus point- If you are married and your wife stays back in India. Plus point if you have a child.- If you have your own hospital, or have a contract with a hospital that you’ll come back and serve it.- During interview convince the VO that you are attached to your family and culture and wanna come back- Liquid assets (your own or your parents’). In the tune of many lakhs.Still if denied, you can reapply. Don’t loose hope. Most of the MLE aspirants do get a visa sooner or later.If you’ve come back to India after CS, getting a visa for residency interviews is relatively easy.Visa for Residency?It is commonly of two types, J1 and H1B.J1 - Exchange visitor visa- You need to clear up to Step 2 CS.- Most programs (60-70%) prefer J1 visa- Sponsored by ECFMG- You need to come back to India for 2 years (mandatory) after completing your residency. There is a talk of increasing this mandatory period to 5 years. So this is not for people who badly wanna stay in US.- There are certain conditions in which J1 waiver (ie. No need to serve in India for 2 years) can be obtained. But it is very very tough.H1B - You need to clear step 3- Less programs offer H1 cos it has to sponsored by employer itself. They are unwilling to do so much paperwork and bear the attorney costs.- It is easier to get it converted into green card.- The H1 cap that we hear about doesn’t apply to docs.- If you are aiming for this visa the number of programs that you will have as your options will be less.GRE route:- You clear GRE and take up courses like Masters in Public health for 2 years or so (some say 1 year??!!, not sure) Give MLE while in US- Normally you have to pay for your course which entails a expenditure of around 7-10 lakhs- There are aids/scholarships etc available but not for all, you’ll have to try hard for them- Plus 2 years more before you can get residency.No. of Residency seats?I’m giving approx. numbers:In USA during past years:No of US medical graduates per year • 14,500No of residency slots per year • 22,500Hence about 8,000 slots are there to be filled by IMGs (International Medical Graduates). But mind it Indians are not the only ones applying!!No of IMGs who got residency after clearing MLE • 55%No of students (including us graduates) who got residency(MLE score 75) = 75%No of students (including us graduates) who got residency(MLE score 90) = 90%Scope after Residency?Well if get to stay in US, its great. You earn good, life’s good. If you have to come back to India you still earn more than your Indian counterparts of same batch. But mind it its getting tougher these days even for US returned PGs to get good jobs since we are restricted only to private sector. But since US PG is recognized all over world, you can head towards other countries. Believe me if you are prepared for that the scope is great.Edit: Examination fee updated.
How do I get a visa and start medical residency training in the USA?
To be eligible a Foreign Medical graduate (except Canada with whom the US co-accredits both medical schools and residencies) must:Be attending a medical school in the World Directory of Medical schools.Pass the USMLE step 1.Apply through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates which will vet your ability to speak English and your medical education. They will certify you to take the USMLE step 2 (both parts) see United States Medical Licensing ExaminationTake USMLE Step 2 clinical knowledge and passTravel to the US to take Step 2 clinical skills. It is not offered outside of the US. Testing is only in 5 centers:Atlanta, Georgia, Chicago, Illinois, Houston, Texas, Los Angeles, California, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and pass. Return home.Once you have passed these USMLE steps (there is still one more you must pass but can be in training while this happens) you can apply to residency programs. Many do not allow foreign medical graduates and the specialty surgical programs rarely take international students. The positions are assigned by the Home - The Match, National Resident Matching Program . Many foreign graduates go unmatched. Most who do match, match in primary care in out of the way places. Remember if you do not apply to a program, you will not match at that program.If you match the program will issue you a visa.Then you must pass the USMLE step 3. Different states have minimum of training requirements from 1 year (usually for US medical school graduates) up to 3 years for international medical graduates.Then comes state licensing which varies from state to state. Usually one gets a license in the state you trained in and then get reciprocity from another state. Remember to stay in the US you will need a job.Passing the USMLE tests is not as easy as it sounds. Some people take years of study to pass. During this time you are getting further and further in time away from your education. Additionally, applying to a residency requires recommendations. In the US, it is standard to get those from your medical school professors. You don’t have those. Some international medical graduates get jobs in academic medical research if possible so they can keep their hand in the medical system, get recommendations, and work while they study.Good luck, this can be a long and arduous process.
How can someone get a translator for a USA tourist visa interview? Is there any form to fill out or do they give a translator during interview time?
The officer who interviews the visa applicant will usually speak and understand the most common local language. If not, another officer or a local conemployee will probably be able to translate. If the language is obscure enough, the conofficer might still find, somewhere in the embassy/consulate, an employee who has it.I remember an instance when the only employee who spoke both the primary local language and the very rare language of the visa applicant was one of the oldest, shyest, most reticent, lowest-level gardeners. He was so proud of the officers• need of and appreciation for that rare skill that one time, that he began to dress better, stand straighter, feel and act more confident, and volunteer for and learn from special, complicated jobs. He eventually earned a permanent promotion to head gardener and did an excellent job at it.

How do I apply for a Schengen visa in the USA as an Indian on an F1 visa?
I am answering this question considering that you want to apply for Schengen visa for tourist purposes.Well, I’ve always thought of writing a post about this as I spent quite some time researching on this topic, but never really made it. But thank you for the question, I’ve got a chance to help folks out.As an Indian in the US, one of the most important things is to have a proper itinerary with you. So let’s say you have a Europe trip planned, you need to identify which is the country where you will have the maximum stay, that’s the consulate where you need to apply for the Schengen visa. For example: If your trip comprises 3 days in Germany, 2 days in Italy, 1 day in France, then you need to apply at the German Consulate. Other factor is based on first country that you enter.I hope that I got the basics covered as of right now.Now let me quickly walk you through the steps for the same:Fill in the Schengen Visa Application: The application forms contains information about your current stay, nationality, which country you will enter first, details of stay, etc.If you do your trip with a tours and travel then you come under the category of prepaid accommodation and transport.Download Schengen Visa Application Form - Schengen VISA InformationGet Medical Insurance:For your period of stay, you need to get medical insurance which covers 30,000 euros. It is recommended to get it from MAWISTA,that’s where I got it from.Health Insurance for Schengen Visa and Foreign VisitorsVisa Appointment: Book a visa appointment at Consulate based on your country of maximum stay or the country where you first enter. For me this was the French Consulate and I managed to get an appointment within a couple of days. One also has to remember that appointments are based on your residence so you will have to book an appointment at a Consulate-General closest to you which was Houston in my case ( I was residing in Texas at that time)Put together the Document Set: You need to get all documents arranged in a proper manner which include Passport copy, latest photographs, proof of accommodation, flight details, financial account information ( show amount which justify your period of stay considering 50 euros per day if you have prepaid accommodation and transport)Attend the Visa Interview: They will ask you a basic set of questions including your reason to visit Europe, length of your stay, your current status in US and will ask you for financial documents, visa copy and so on. Once they are happy with financials as well as your reason, you will be good to go. Make sure you carry a prepaid envelope with your address to be given to Consulate if you want the visa to be shipped back or else if you do stay in the same city you can go in-person and collect the same.Enjoy your Europe trip!Let me know if you still have any questions!
Now that Saudi Arabia is pulling hundreds of new doctors out of Canada (due to diplomatic spat), would new USA medical graduates and residents like to come up to our nice country and help fill the gaps?
Unfortunately, it isn't that simple.Modern medical education systems carefully parcel out residency positions, which are in tremendous demand as, if you complete a residency, you're looking at a substantial bump in income. However, hospitals also need residents to perform crucial patient care functions as, in most cases where a patient is in a hospital bed, for the majority of the time they are under the direct care of a resident and not a full attending physician.Depending on the speciality, a residency can take three to seven years to complete. Both the physician and the hospital want to (1) make arrangements well before the residency period starts so they can assure their future plans/have proper staff in place and (2) ensure that both sides are committed to the full residency terms as long as both go well. Think of a residency position as something like signing a sports contract with a "no-trade" clause.Most residency positions are finalized in the spring, even before residents complete their basic training for a physician. The newly minted physician takes a short time off after finishing their internship and then dives right into their new job.Now, hospitals will account for the loss of a resident or three and make plans to replace them the following spring. If someone isn't cutting it, they're usually told as early as possible. Sometimes a resident will quit because they find out they don't like the field. However, it's extremely rare for a resident to switch hospitals. Moreover, you can't just take a new resident and given them the same responsibilities as a more senior resident. So, here are the hurdles:- Anyone seeking a residency position has already made arrangements. - There aren't enough qualified people for the middle and high residency positions unless you poach them from other hospitals, and that would get you and the physician sued.- Any candidates that might be available fall clearly into the "second tier". There are lots of reasons why people who are new physicians might not be suitable for a residency position. You still have to screen these people thoroughly before you give them the extra responsibility.
How do I apply for a permanent residency in USA with student visa?
