Would it be wrong to do a year of medical residency in australia and then apply to the united states?

Wrong? No, just impossible. Hospitals don't take on new residents in the middle of a residency program. Furthermore, with more Americans earning MD degrees annually than there are residencies available, why would a hospital spend so much time & money on visas for foreigners, even if they earn their MD in the US?

Once you are a qualified doctor you can apply for a specialist residency/fellowship anywhere in the world. You presumably know that you have to pass the three USMLE exams to be able to do this in the US. A friend of mine recently passed all three exams in a single year but she has an Oxford MBBS and is rather exceptional, most people take two years to do them, they are hard work.
