Applying to residency as a US-IMG medical student

What is more stressful than applying for residency during a pandemic? Applying as an international medical graduate or IMG. IMGs are broken down into two groups, United States (US) vs non-US citizens, and the latter requires a visa to train as a resident in America. Statistically, each year more and more IMGs are accepted into residency programs throughout the nation. Despite this, there are still many stigmas revolving around international medical graduates.
