Advice for getting ENT? It's a tough residency to get for US grads, so it's even more difficult for FMG/IMGs.

You need:

Incredibly high Step Scores (240+ for an IMG)
Research with publications (preferably 4+)
Outstanding evaluations
Plenty of USCE, preferably related to ENT
Connections
Brilliant interviewing skills
AAAAAND...
A healthy dose of luck.

I do have a friend in ENT residency now, but he's a USDO grad. Sharp guy, excellent candidate, international research work, humanitarian aid and missionary experience on multiple continents, etc.

In short, as an FMG/IMG it is unequivocally a long shot. But if you have the stuff, GO FOR IT!
