✔ The minimum USMLE step 1 score we accept is 221, and expect that the individual will pass the exams in their first attempt.
✔ We require clinical (one month) experience in a U.S. healthcare system. We do not count observerships or research as clinical experience.
✔ We require a chairman's letter and three letters of recommendation with application which is a total of 4 letters. Chairman's letter is optional for preliminary applicants.
✔ You must have graduated from medical school within the last three (3) years. We require International Medical Graduate's to be ECFMG (Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates) certified at the time of your application or far enough along in the application process that you will receive certification no later than February 1 of the year in which you plan to match.
