    usmle scores needed for fp and im?

    what are the usmle scores required for obtaining a residency in family practise, pediatrics or internal medicine.
    Is it easier for US foreign medical graduates to obtain a residency with scores like 78 or need higher than 85?
    also what are the residencies that we can get with scores ranging from 78-85

    USMLE scores arent everything in the world and not meant to be competitive, but if makes a difference if you have a high score for going for the competitive residencies. With those scores I guess it all depends on the people wanting to go into that particular residency and WHERE you want to do it at. I know some people who had high 90's scores and they couldnt get a surgery residency, and Im sure it was all because they had their mind set on a particular place but there are smaller programs in less popular hospitals makin it easier. Just my thoughts
    Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.
