*International Applicants

Academic transcripts for degrees conferred by non-U.S. institutions are required to be evaluated for their equivalence to similar degrees earned in the U.S. – see credential evaluations.  Physicians who have completed ECFMG certification may submit the Certification Verification Status Report in lieu of the course-by-course evaluation to satisfy this requirement for their medical degree.
