I would like to get a board certification in order to practice is US as a doctor.
I am graduating in October in Italy and I am aware that before getting a residency in US I should pass USMLE exams STEP 1, 2CK, 2CS.
Taking into account I don't have any contact in US, which is the best route I should follow in order to maximize my chances of getting a residency?
I am sure that getting outstanding marks in USMLE exams could help a lot but it isn't a guarantee, nor sufficient to be hired.
What about trying to get an observership, PhD program or similar.
