Do you accept International Medical Graduates?
At this time, we regretfully do not accept IMG.
Do you offer any observerships or preceptorships for international graduates?
We are not currently offering observerships, externships or preceptorships.
How long can I be out of medical school and still apply for your program?
Applicants must be recent (2 or less years) graduates from medical school to be considered competitive. Special exceptions will be considered for:
- Candidates entering a new residency after completion of a first residency in an ACGME accredited program
- Candidates with an MD or DO with a MPH/MS/PhD and extensive prior research experience after completion of an LCME or an AOA accredited medical or osteopathic medical school in the U.S. or Canada, or
- Candidates who have served a prolonged period as a general medical officer in the U.S. military.
Do you hire outside of the NMRP match?
All GME training programs use the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) to receive and accept applications to the program. All programs at our facility will participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) “The Match” to recruit residents.
Do you have USMLE minimum score requirements for Step 1 and Step 2?
Applicants must have passed USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination) Step 1 and have taken both components of Step 2 or the COMLEX (Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination) Level 1 and have taken both components of Level 2. For standardized test scores, those candidates who have passed both step 1/step 2 USMLE or level 1/level 2 COMLEX with high scores on the first attempt will be considered more competitive in that category.
