  I am an old IMG. I have failed usmle 1 on border line in 3rd attempt. Please advise what are my chances of getting residency, should I take a chance for next attempt or leave this field?

If I continue, what should my strategy. Also, please let me know of someone who was in my situation and got residency. Please advise as its very important as I have worked very hard for this exam. I read kaplan books, 1st aid, uw and goljan rapid review.

Your help and advise is very much needed and appreciated.

Thanks

  Apply to Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, in the USA so you can apply as USA grad for residency

  Have you thought about alternative route like a PhD programs. They do a great job with science and research. Their job is more valuable than physicians.

  You only have to pass the GRE and do some research before applying, the beg for Phd students.

  don`t give up if MD is that you want to be - you need to go to Kaplan Course as you by urselves can`t go it-it $3000+ -If you can afford must attend kaplan -NO DIT-NO UWORLD--NO BANK can help you -you need assistance from a source that is master of usmle domain and over there talk/Discuss with as many student as possible .

Residency or NO Residency discussing right now is like "Grapes are sour" ie you couldn`t pass exam and pretend you can`t get job so quit .If you`ve usa papers you`ll get job no matter what -sooner or later you `ll work as MD --PERIOD

If wanna give up then MPH is way to go it has more respect and salary then PA
