Requirements for International Medical Graduates

Because of the great number of highly qualified applicants, very few international medical graduates are accepted into the residency program. Currently, there are 8 international medical graduates in our program of 179 residents. Only those with outstanding letters of recommendation and a year or more of clinical or research experience in the US or Canada will be considered for interviews.

Requirements

  • United Stated Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) | Scores of 213 or higher on Step 1 and Step 2
  • Graduates eligible for J-1 Visa status sponsored through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)
  • We would support an H-1B Visa if the applicant is accepted into the program
  • ECFMG certification must be received on or before January 1, 2015
