||I am certified by ECFMG in 2012. I have not applied for Step 3 yet. My primary goal is to make use of my certificate so as to have abroad experience and do some publications. You may think that I can do it in my home country but it is a reality that an orginal research paper can be accepted much more easily when it is submitted from USA. Any advice, help etc. will be appreciated. By the way, I am from Turkey.
