Postby sij » Sat Sep 01, 2012 1:19 am

I am FMG, graduated in 2011. Passed step1(206/85) step2(206/86) and cs in 1st attempt plus eight weeks of US clerkship and a LOR from a fellow. I did not match last year in FP. Now I am reapplying this year with 3 month of voluntary work and 2 LOR from FP doctors. Please advice what else I need to do to increase my chances to get accepted in FM residency. Thanks

How many programs did you apply last year? How many interviews did you get? Your credentials are looking strong and I am surprised if you didn't get 5+ interviews. My only guess would be that you applied to too few programs and didn't spread your application across states, e.g. applied only in NY/NJ.

Last year started a trend of more American graduates going into Primary Care, so FM is becoming more competitive.
