International Applicants

It is the responsibility of the individual to secure the proper visa. The only acceptable status is an ECFMG sponsored J-1 visa. We also recognize "green cards." The University of Rochester policy does not permit H-1 or H-1b visas.

If you have any questions regarding visas, please contact the Graduate Medical Education Office at (585) 275-4607. For information regarding ECFMG certification, visit the ECFMG website at
