Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a USMLE cutoff score to apply to our program?

There is not a cutoff score. However, we typically match with applicants with a score of 220 or greater on USMLE.

Is the Step 2 of USMLE required before applying?

Step 2 is not required for the application process, but is required for appointment to our program. We prefer to have your Step 2 score before our rank list is submitted.

How many SLOEs are mandatory for application to your program?

We require one SLOE at minimum, but we prefer to have at least two. Ideally one of these would be a consensus letter from your home insitution. A minimum of three and a maximum of four letters of recommendation are accepted.

Will you consider an applicant with only one EM rotation?

Yes. There are many circumstances that come into play, and we understand that not all applicants are able to secure or afford additional EM rotations. We do require at least one EM rotation.

What is your policy of post-interview communication?

You are always welcome to contact our office with updates and/or questions. We do not initiate any post-interview communications unless there is a question about your application. Please understand that even if you do not receive any communication from us after your interview, we remain deeply interested in our candidates after their visit to our program.
