  Background:
Canadian, medical degree from Ireland, just graduated in December 2019.

Academics: Had to re-sit surgery because I failed an oral exam. Graduated with second-degree honours overall.

USMLE Step 1: 229
USMLE Step 2 CK: 230
USMLE Step 2 CS: took it but didn't pass, will re-take in the Spring 2020.

Clinical experience: Great letters from Canadian psychiatrists and electives.
4-weeks psychiatry elective at Larkin
Looking to do some externships and possible research in NYC or Michigan over the spring-summer 2020 after I do my exams (US+Canada).

Research: Presented at 3 medical student conferences/summits (3 psych projects), 1 manuscript submitted to a Canadian journal for publication.

Do you guys think I have a shot for psychiatry in the States? My main concern is my re-sit of surgery and my CS attempt.
