International Medical Graduate Applications 

You must apply through ERAS and have first time passing scores from USMLE Steps 1, 2 (both components) and 3 (if taken). Competitive applicants will have minimum scores above 220 on USMLE exams. Your three letters of recommendation must come from US clinical rotations. Strong preference is given to applicants who have secured meaningful hands-on clinical experiences within the last 3 years in the US health system, rather than observerships or research fellowships. We sponsor J1 visas only, and our application deadline is December 1.

Because we are bound to fairness for all applicants, we cannot discuss ways in which any applicant can strengthen his or her application.
