EMRA Hangout 05/04/17 DO & IMG Student's interested in EM
where do you rank step 3 for a candidate who has taken it aleady?
Matched @ Indiana
My medical school doesn’t have an EM residency program - should I still get a SLOE from them? Will it be a red flag if I DON’T have a SLOE from my school? Thank you.
How would you approach an applicant who took only the COMLEX and either scored really high or really low? Is there a cutoff?
When you view an IMG applicant what is one mistake or one weakness that you see repeated by various IMG applicants?
How did you go up setting your audition rotations?
Is it necessary to take the USMLE step 2 CS if one is taking COMLEX PE?
How important is research experience to you? Is there a certain extra-curricular that you really like to see?
Where do you rank step 3 for a candidate who has taken it aleady? Does it hurt/help/matter?
Obtaining audition rotations seems to be a relatively common issue DO students. How would you recommend approaching sending out VSAS applications? What if you only have offers back from programs after September?
Besides going to conferences, what can MS1-3 do to show committment to EM?
Josh, could you share how you managed to attack starting EMS in a 3rd world country?
Are students from Canadian schools (which are accredited by the same body as American MD schools) still considered IMGs? Are there “tiers” of IMGs?

Many IMGs want to go into global medicine but we have heard that PDs see this as an “excuse” to explain why we went to an international med school instead of staying in the US. What should we say in an interview if we actually ARE interested in global medicine?
What certain things help an applicant obtain a excellent SLOE?
Are there any EM residency based hospitals offering electives or rotations to non US IMG through an application? (not VSAS)
Thank you all, very helpful!
Thank you all for your time.
