as we all know the USMLE isn’t available for most of us in the developping countries due to hight fees required
but to u all …. here is why u have to go through it
The average salaries for physicians in usa

New York: $170,000
Los Angeles: $165,000
Houston: $152,000
Seattle: $155,000

most International Medical Graduates (IMGs) like this field because:
1. it will be easier to get H1 work visa
2. Easier specialtiy you can get
3. exciting Fellowship opportunities

now … i think most of u will get through USMLE .. it really worth it
For me i didn’t take the 1st yet … still studying and hard working on it
but after seeing those salaries on site i got an aim and goal now to start the road to it
as you might know here in egypt our salaries reaches about 200 us$ /month if you work 16 houres aday and 7 days a week
well .. i think we all suffer from the same thing
in our countries : hard working + no enough money + no time to study for postgraduate studies
that’s what we get here .. i think it will wourth it to pay those 800 + 800+ 1200 US$
wish you all good luck
