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.

- We would support an H-1B Visa if the applicant is accepted into the program
