Eligibility Criteria

If you are a graduate of a medical school outside the United States or Canada, an ECFMG certificate must accompany your ERAS application. Preference is given to candidates who pass the USMLE on the first attempt and completed medical school training within the past five years (or enrolled in an accredited internship or residency program within the past five years). Letters of recommendation written by supervising physicians in the US setting are very beneficial in helping us assess your ability to function in our clinical setting.  We do not offer observerships or externships for international graduates at this time.
