Reg timing of step2 ck and cs

Hi Umarbhai,

I have given step 1 and i want to plan when to give step 2 ck and cs.. Am planning ck in may/june and cs in july.. 

But by doing so I will get cs score in oct.. So is it okay.? Should i apply in sept itself with step 2 cs result pending? or should i apply in oct when cs scores come? or should i give cs first and ck later?

 Also i got 221 in step 1.. Is it good enuf to get in neurology or im?

Emergency Medicine

Umar bhai,

Thanks again for this wonderful website.

I am a final yr mbbs student. I am interested in studying emergency medicine in the US. 

I have scored 244/99 in step 1. currently involved in research with the Emergency department at our college. 

Must I do a residency in Internal medicine before specializing in EM or can I do it directly? What chances do IMGs have of getting into EM residency?

Waiting for your reply.

Thanking you,

Sam
