International Graduates


International graduates must meet the requirements established by the Graduate Medical Education Office at Baylor College of Medicine, as set by the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners and the Immigration Services. They will also need to contact the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), for information regarding the paperwork process for students and graduates of foreign medical schools. Baylor College of Medicine requires international medical graduates to meet the terms for an Institutional Permit, as outlined by the Texas Medical Board, and have the documents necessary for a J-1 Visa.

Any additional questions regarding international applicants can also be addressed though the International Services Office at Baylor College of Medicine.




The Pediatric Surgery Education Committee will review residency applications when completed through ERAS. Applicants who are considered competitive for appointment will be invited for a personal interview, which is an important factor in the final selection. This will provide candidates an opportunity to visit the Texas Medical Center and Baylor College of Medicine and learn more about the program.  Applicants will meet with Dr. Mark Mazziotti, Pediatric Surgery Faculty, and current residents. They will also be able to tour Texas Children’s Hospital with fellows as guides. Before adjourning, a luncheon is provided, at which time the chief and staff address any questions.


Formal Interview Sessions


The Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, Division of Pediatric Surgery, will conduct three interview sessions each year.  The interview dates for the 2022 application cycle will be released in late fall 2020.
