Thank you for your interest in the University of Colorado School of Medicine Internal Medicine Residency Training Program.
✔ We will accept only applications submitted to us electronically. If you are an international medical graduate, you must apply to our program through an ECFMG office.
✔ The minimum USMLE Step 1 score is 225. We expect that individuals have passed the exams in their first attempt and performed competitively.
✔ We require clinical (one month) experience in a U.S. healthcare system. We do not count observerships or research as clinical experience.
✔ We require a chairman's letter and two letters of recommendation with application which is a total of 3 letters. Chairman's letter is optional for preliminary applicants.
✔ You must have graduated from medical school within the last two (2) years. We require International Medical Graduate's to be ECFMG (Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates) certified at the time of your application or far enough along in the application process that you will receive certification no later than February 1 of the year in which you plan to match.
✔ Residents in our program must be a U.S. citizen, a lawful permanent resident, refugee, asylee, or possess the appropriate documentation to allow a resident to legally train at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine.
