If I complete medical school and residency in Africa, how can I practice in the U.S.?

I am an American considering medical school and residency in Africa, specifically, Uganda. After becoming a registered doctor in Uganda, what must I do to start practicing in the United States? And how difficult would such a transtition be?

you would have to totally re-train as an american resident.

if you did your residency in say, internal medicine, you would have to do it again in an american program to get a license to practice in the US
