Maybe the title needs to change to “how to get into IM program, then,
Several things to do to improve your credentials:
1. Pass the Step 3. Step 3 has lots of question from the practice clinical,
and not from textbooks, so it is important information to show the PD how
much you know about the medicine practice in the state.
2. Try to do some OB, as much as possible, especially in the inpatient
setting. The office experience may help, but the in hospital experience
will really let you be ready for the pace, and intensity of the internship,
and know to how to practice, and show the PD's that you are ready.
3. Improve your English. if you want to do IM, most of the time, you need
to talk, talk to attending, to RN's, to patients and family, so only get a
high score during the exam was not enough, you need to show PD's that your
English is understandable, and you know the different way to talk to
attending/RN and to family/pt.
4. Get some networks, which is very important anywhere.
5. Try to apply many programs. Normally, the ratio will be 100 applications,
10 IVs, one program.
Until you get into the program and finish your intern year, all those
Chinese MD, and PHD/research did not count too much. Sorry to say that, but
this is the US clinic reality.
BTW, most of the community hospitals, and some Univ. programs would not
emphasize too much on your PHD or research experience, since the main thing
they care about is patient care, so clinical experience become very
important. The PHD or research work may be some useful during fellowship
later, since most fellowship program would like to have some research thing,
although how much people could do it is another question.
