International Medical Graduate Application Requirements

International graduates must meet the requirements established by the Office of Graduate Medical Education at Baylor College of Medicine, as set by the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners and Immigration Services. They will also need to contact the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates for information regarding the paperwork process for students and graduates of foreign medical schools.
