Like Tufts University itself – long a leader in global education, with a multitude of international students and programs – the School of Medicine reaches beyond United States borders to promote global diversity in our programs for medical graduates and aspiring health care professionals.
We welcome international applicants that come to us through established sponsor organizations seeking residency placements, fellowships or professional advancement via pathways that often start with research scholarships. We also offer them public health and professional advanced degrees, as well as basic sciences doctoral degree programs, research and training. We are constantly expanding both the programs available to international applicants and our global reach.
Our mission at the Office of International Affairs is to help international candidates find the programs that fit their educational and medical career goals, make it as easy as possible for them to successfully complete the application and requirements process, and make every effort – given the considerable competition – to place them in an appropriate program.
We also are here, once they arrive, to provide the services and guidance to help make their Tufts education and stay in Greater Boston a rewarding one.
In addition, the Office of International Affairs provides a wealth of clinical enrichment, program analysis, lectures and other services to health care organizations abroad.
