  1. Great to hear about your success story! Unfortunately being an IMG makes it even more challenging. I don’t know of any IMGs who could transfer Also, if you don’t mind, can you share the reason for your transfer? Thanks.
  2. Great to hear that you could successfully transfer! Any advice for me? When did you start contacting your PGME office?Many thanks.
  3. Thank you so much for your detailed response! Very helpful! The next 6 months will be very stressful for me then! Do you think it is better if I contact IM programs first or I email the PGME office?
  4. Thanks! Well, I always want to practice as a cardiologist. I like FM, it is a great field, but I prefer to work in a field with more focused on a specific area rather than a general one and cardiology is my passion. Hopefully I can transfer.
  5. Thank you for your detailed response and kind words! It was very helpful. I’ll try to email all programs to see if I have any chance or what the requirements would be. Just out of curiosity, can I ask my program to change my rotations? I have one IM rotation at the end of Y1, I was wondering if I can ask them to have it in the first 6 months instead?
  6. Unfortunately I only got one IM interview although I applied to all the available programs. I am an IMG so I am not sure if that played a role in it or not. The program sent out the schedule, but I don’t have any IM rotation during the first six months. I have one elective that I can do IM. Not sure which rotation in IM I should get for that( CTU?)
  7. I will start my FM residency this July. So hopefully I will be in good standing! Any recommendations on that?
  8. Thank you for your response. Well, I wanted to do IM. But, I applied for FM as well to make sure that I get in, and I matched to FM. Although I like FM, I really prefer IM which is my passion. I know I only have a chance to transfer in the first year, that is why I want to make sure that I know all the steps.
  9. Hi everyone, What do you think about the chance of transferring from FM to IM? Is it doable? If it is, what advice do you have for me? Many thanks.
  10. Hey guys, Is there any post about the interview invitations for second round this year? Thank you!
