Us Fellowships


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

I am a CMG and as such up till now found no reason to the write the USMLEs. I know in the past CMGs have gone to the US to pursue fellowships without the need for USMLEs. With the institution of the Affordable Care Act, is this reality changing?

 

I would be hoping to start my fellowship in 2016 when I graduate.

My question is: 1) Are the USMLEs required for fellowship

2) If so, are there any programs/states where the USMLE is not a requirement?

3) (Likely program specific) but do programs make an exception for Canadians?

 

Thanks for any insight!

Don't expect any exceptions, generally you just need a pass for fellowships.

All three of your questions are program specific.  Check with individual programs, or better yet, Canadians who have completed fellowships at these institutions.

 

Even if the program doesn't require USMLEs, you may have trouble getting a visa without them.
