Do you accept international medical graduates?
International medical school graduates must be certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) at the time of application.
Is US clinical experience required for international graduates?
No, US clinical experience is not required but it is strongly preferred. We do not consider observerships, externships and/or preceptorships to be clinical experience, nor do we offer those opportunities.
Does your program sponsor Visas?
No, ECFMG is the sole sponsor of visas for physicians in clinical training programs.
How long can I be out of medical school and still apply for your program?
Applicants must be recent (2 years or less) graduates from medical school to be considered competitive.
Where can I find support in applying to Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS)?
The ECFMG offers a service called ERAS Support Services to anyone who is ECFGME certified. The ERAS Support Services will issue the ERAS token, receive the applicant’s supporting documents, and transmit them to the ERAS Post Office, and provide client support between the various organizations.
