Hi all
I'm international medical student and will graduate in 2013
I want to continue my study in US and I wish to get into a residency program
i want to get a research position while studying for steps
but my problem is i don't have a good cv
i just have 2 publication ( one is case report) and my other 2 researchers are not done yet
and they are all in pediatrics field but i love cardiology and want to work in that field
i was never a research guy but i know how to perform a research and i really need this positions to get paid while staying in S and studying
do you think i will have chance to get a position? what should i do to get that?
is there better option for me?
i'm lost and desperate and i'm waiting for your advises

While you are still a student, try to find electives in the US. This is going to be much easier then finding clinical experience after you graduate and will have high impact on your application.

Is there any program that won't need USMLE step 1 score for electives?
do they provide visa for me too?

GME requirements will vary by hospital. I do not think STep 1 is a requirement. Most US medical students don't have Steps passed when they start electives. I doubt any would provide a visa. I think visitors visa would be OK since you are not going to get compensated. Keep in mind that this is just my thinking and only immigration attorney can provide you a legal advice about visa.
