  hi all
I am a 2002 graduate, mom of two middle school kids, wanting to get started with my USMLE Step 1, but feeling scared. Anyone in the same boat, wants to create a motivational study group here or on whatsapp to help lift leach other in this long journey? The first step is always the hardest after a long break. Anyone from Dallas DFW area in Texas?

  Hi Everyone
As you all know that, most of the Residency programs are looking for Medical Graduates with in 5 years of their graduation. 2002 Year of Graduation certainly make it much harder to get into residency, even if you pass USMLE in first attempts with and good scores.
But don't get disappointed, following is my advice, which I have given many Medical Students who were struggling with the time, being an older graduate and score factor. I am currently a Chief of Gastroenterology , in USA. I am a practicing Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist for last 20 years. I have mentored many students world wide from India, Pakistan, England, Latin America etc.
My advice to you all, if possible to get into MS /or with PhD (Master of Science) in subjects related to the field of Medicine.
e.g MS in Hematology, MS Immunology, MS Microbiology, MS Pathology, MS Anatomy, MS in Cancer Biology etc. You can go through any of the Universities at your state or Province and find these out.
By obtaining any of these MS/or PhD degrees, now you have become a fresh Post Graduate Medical Student, which will help you in the following ways:
1- Now you are fresh Medical Graduate.
2- Better Degree than just and MD/MBBS
3- You may develop relationships with Residency Programs, if your MS/PhD University has it, and you may be presenting in their conferences as Post=Graduate Student.
4- You will also have the current LOR from your Supervisor/Dean at the Master/PhD Program.

I hope this will help you all.
I wish you all the very best.
Dr. Shams Tabrez
