FAQ for IMG applicants

Do you have special requirements for international medical graduates?

We require that international medical graduates have active, unrestricted ECFMG certificates. We require a clinical rotation of at least 8 weeks duration that involves DIRECT PATIENT CARE, with at least 6 weeks in a family medicine office in the United States for all applicants. We also require applicants to have graduated from medical school within 1 year of beginning training in our program.

Do you sponsor visas (J1 student or H1B worker visas)?

We do not sponsor visas; we do accept ECFMG sponsored visas. We do not consider applications with only an EAD visa. You must be eligible to work in the United States by June 1 of the academic year in which you begin training (example: 6/1/24 for academic year 24-25).

Do you accept paper or universal applications?

No. We accept only those applications submitted through the ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) system. Please contact the ECFMG if you need additional information on applying through the ERAS system.

Do you have international medical graduates in our program?

Yes, see our Meet our Faculty and Residents page.

Do I have to have to participate in the match?

Yes. We will only consider and interview those applicants who are planning on ranking our program through the National Resident Matching Program.
