How easy is it to get a residency in Neurology in the US compared to Internal medicine? Also, can an MD in Psychiatry in India increase my chances of getting a residency in Neurology in the US?

A residency in neurology in the US is quite gettable...often it is more of a headache getting a prelim spot for 1 year of medicine than getting the actual neurology residency itself. While experience in India might help (I would think MD in neurology and psychiatry more than others), the bottom line is that good scores are a must as everyone is scoring very high these days. Finally any research experience or publications will also help.
