International Candidates

An Important Message for International Candidates:

The University of Florida Department of Medicine welcomes residency applications from outside the United States. Please be advised that the University of Florida College of Medicine will only sponsor J-1 (visitor exchange) visas. Resident aliens who already have permanent work authorization are welcome to apply. All applications must be filed through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). Of particular importance for all international graduates, we require a score of 250 or greater on the USMLE Step 2 and at least one year of formal post-graduate clinical training. Failure to meet either of these criteria will exclude you from the interview process.
