International Medical School Graduates

International medical school graduates must complete at least two months of clinical training in an ACGME-approved pediatric program or a similar program in the United States, Canada or England*. A listing of these programs can be found in the AMA GME directory. Observerships and research are not acceptable as clinical training. We are not offering observerships at this time.

*International medical school graduates who have met these requirements should obtain a letter to that effect from the clinical advisor of the rotation and submit it with your ERAS application.

All national and international medical school graduates need to have graduated from medical school within the last 5 years. We sponsor J-1 visas only and only if all other criteria are met.
