  • USMLE Transcript – Step 1 and Step 2 CS and CK results are required to be considered for interview and are also required to become a licensed trainee in the state of Massachusetts.  COMLEX scores are not accepted for residency application.
  • Official Medical School Transcript
  • Personal Statement

  • ECFMG certificate (for foreign medical graduates)

International Medical Graduates

  • All graduates of international medical schools must apply through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)
  • Must have had a minimum of one (1) year of “hands on” clinical experience in the U.S. (observerships or research rotations do not meet this requirement)
