Yes, we do accept IMGs to our program who we feel match the educational, medical, interpersonal, and academic potietial of our U.S. based applicants.  You must hold a current, valid certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates(ECFMG).  Visa issues are dealt with on a case-by-case basis. As a general rule those candidates with direct patient experience within the previous 3 years are preferred.

Every application is considered on an indicidual basis. All applicants must have a passing score on both the USMLE Step I and Step II (CS and CK) in order to be ranked in the Neurology program. There are no specific requirements for foreign medical graduates. However, all IMGs must have been certified by the ECFMG.

Is clinical experience in the United States required?
Certainly, prior clinical experience in the United States is advantageous. However, candidates can be accepted into the program without previous U.S. clinical training.
