    It starts with a series of exams on the search function, though I believe it then moves on to the USMLE, and some applications from thereon.

    I think you have to start over in terms of specialist training also if you go there.

    A surgeon? Didn't think they were particularly short of them. How do you fancy family medicine in rural Ohio instead?

    There was a thread like this not 2 weeks ago. Look it up, you'll find your answers there.
    In short, you'll have to sit an exam. Obviously.

    Being a bit pedantic there...

    I have two cousins (Egyptian Grads) who are on residency programs for anaesthesia in NYC. Admittedly they didn't make it onto their first choice of surgery and had/have to work very hard but they are still set for a good career in a popular location.
