Application Process

Deadline: December 1st.

All applications are submitted via the Electronic Residency Application Service.

U.S. medical applicants should provide a curriculum vitae, Dean’s letter, medical school transcripts and a United States Medical Licensing Examination (U.S.M.L.E.) transcript. 

Our program strongly encourages all applicants to complete the supplemental ERAS application. The additional information collected will help our program staff learn more about applicants’ medical education journey, including more meaningful information about work, volunteer, and research experiences, and will help us better identify applicants who fit our program environment and mission.

This supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform that is separate from the MyERAS application and must be completed between September 1-30.

To assist you in obtaining a license, we highly recommend that you use FCVS to verify your medical school and other credentials  which are necessary to apply for a medical license in Massachusetts as well as  in many other states. This process can take months to complete and is dependent upon the responses from your medical school and other required entities, which is why the process should be started now.

We require graduation within five years of application.

In addition to providing a curriculum vitae, Dean’s letter, medical school transcripts and a U.S.M.L.E. transcript, international medical applicants must meet the following conditions:

  • U.S.M.L.E. Score of 220 or above on Step One and Step Two. Preferred Step Three completed.
