Requirements for foreign applicants
Candidates must meet the DHMC GME Eligibility Requirements (PDF). You must have a currently valid certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) to be eligible for application to a GME-accredited clinical training program.
Please note that it is a requirement of the New Hampshire Board of Medicine to have successfully passed USMLE Steps 1 and 2, or NBME Parts 1 and 2, or have obtained ECFMG Certification in order to apply for a training license. It is imperative that you meet these requirements in order to begin your training on time, or jeopardize acceptance of your application.
Candidates who have graduated, or are expected to graduate, in good standing from a U.S. Medical or Osteopathic School, presently on an F-1 Visa, will be considered for H-1B status. The program may also consider candidates who are presently holding H-1B visas from other training programs. Each training program will apply certain program specific criteria for screening of H-1B applicants. The program then will present these candidates to the GME Office.
