Frequently Asked Questions

Can I submit materials in addition to what is required by ERAS?
Yes, you can send us any additional materials you wish. These items can be submitted directly to the Residency Coordinator, Room 5065, The Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center, 601 N. Caroline Street, Baltimore, MD 21287-0877.

When and how will you notify candidates about interviews?
We begin reviewing applications shortly after our application deadline which is usually in the latter part of October. After applications have been reviewed, candidates selected for interviews will be contacted primarily via e-mail. If no response is received, or there is no e-mail available, candidates will be contacted by telephone. Generally, the interview notification time period runs from late October through the month of November. Candidates may be contacted at any point during this time period, depending upon when their application was received and reviewed.

Does your program accept International Medical Graduates?

What kind of visa do you offer foreign nationals?
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine supports the use of the ECFMG sponsored J-1 for clinical trainees. We do not offer H-1B1 visas except to foreign nationals who are graduates of U.S. medical schools.

Do you have USMLE score requirements and other specific qualifications for IMGs?
We do not have specific requirements for foreign medical graduates. Every application is considered on an individual basis. However, all IMGs must have be certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (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.
