Q: Do you have a minimum USMLE Board Examination score requirement for acceptance into residency?
A: No, we evaluate each application in its entirety and decisions are made on a variety of factors. We do give precedence to applicants with stronger performance on the exam and prefer individuals who passed their Boards on the first attempt.
Q: Do you accept international medical graduates as residents?
A: Yes. As we are looking for the most capable residents available, all applicants are reviewed by our Admissions Committee. However, for international medical graduates to be eligible for our program, they must have satisfactorily completed 12-months of training in an ACGME accredited program.
Q: Do you accept COMLEX scores for applications?
A: We accept COMLEX scores for review of application materials, but USMLE scores are required, even for graduates of osteopathic schools.
Q: What other criteria does your program have for residency selection?
A: We do not have any one particular criterion, but things that the Admissions Committee considers favorably are: AOA status, research experience, publications, community service, and/or a strong medical school transcript.
