* Shift from research onto residency
 #851178

  Hi colleagues
I am a researcher in the field of neuroscience and want to do neurology residency in the USA. As a researcher, I have many journal publications, conference papers, posters, grants. What is the problem, I graduated in 2003. However, after that time I did PhD, post-doc, worked as a researcher, all in neuroscience. I have major clinical experience gap but if we take into account research, the gaps can be filled out. By the way, I work in Canada and I am a permanent resident in Canada.
- is it realistic to get into neurology residency, in my case?
- if yes, how can I increase my chances?
Thanks in advance

  From what I heard, having research is a big asset for neuro. And unlike some specialties, old YOG is not such a big deal for neuro. I think you will most likely match even with average scores. But higher the scores, the better, of course. Good luck!
