Canadian Fellowship - Qualification to work in USA as Neonatologist?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I a UK neonatal trainee about to finish my neonatal training in next few months (Certificat of Specialist Training in Neonatology) and will be qualified to work as a consultant neonatologist here.

For professional and personal reasons, I have decided to move to North America. For this I have done the USMLE exams with good scores (Step 1 229 Step 2 241 and CS pass) and gained ECFMG certifications. I am a biritish citizen, born in and graduated from India. I have 2 questions:

  • Is this true that USA fellowship programs are no longer accepting International Medical Graduates for direct entry to fellowships?
  • If I did a neonatal fellowship in Canada, and passed the ABP neonatology board exams, will I be able to practice neonatology in the USA? or will I need to do the residency?

Thanks in advance for any answers.
