Q: Do you have a minimum 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. We are looking for the most capable residents available, and they come from a variety of backgrounds. We do give preference to applicants who have had clinical experience within the last three years.
Q: Do you accept COMLEX scores for applications?
A: We accept COMLEX scores for applications, but USMLE scores are required, even for graduates of osteopathic schools.
Q: Do you sponsor any visas?
A: Yes, the J1 and H1B.
Q: What other criteria does your program have for residency selection?
A: We do not have any one particular criterion, but things that weigh favorably are: AOA status, research experience, publications, community service, and/or a strong medical school transcript. We recommend that you provide explanation for any extraordinary information within your application. For instance, if you have failed a medical school course, you should briefly discuss in your personal statement any extenuating circumstances that may have contributed to the situation.
