Application Process

Thank you for your interest in Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM). All of us at the Office of International Affairs want to make it as clear, efficient and painless as possible for international medical graduates — as well as those working in technical fields — to apply for our research scholarship, residency, fellowship and allied technical training programs.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Medical Student Electives program for international students is fully subscribed for the 2014 spring and fall terms and we are no longer accepting applications.
Please check back periodically on the Visiting Student Program section of the TUSM Registrar's web page for additional updates. In addition, the Clinical Observership program no longer offered for international medical graduates. Observerships for international visiting physicians actively engaged in clinical practice remain available.

In this Application Process section of our Web site, you will learn all you need to know about how to complete your application, when to do so, and what happens after you apply. Please click on your program of choice below, or in the list to the left, to begin and continue following our application process.

We also have briefly listed all the application process requirements for each of our programs in a chart for quick review at any time. See the Program Requirements at a Glance.
