Griffin Hospital Residency Program Applications

We carefully consider the entire application of each candidate to determine those who will be invited for an interview. This includes the applicant’s letters of recommendation, medical school performance, extracurricular/volunteer experiences, scholarly activities, commitment to the specialty, and USMLE scores. Most of our applicants have USMLE Step I and Step II scores of 220 or higher. We prefer recent medical graduates (typically within the last 5 years). However, we have had residents in our program who began residency more than 5 years after graduating from medical school. For International Medical Graduates, US clinical experience is preferred.

Visa Sponsorship

We accept International Medical Graduates (IMG) and support any visa which will allow you to legally work as a resident physician, typically J1 or H1. The program does not pay for visa or attorney fees except where mandated by law. Since immigration and visa requirements frequently change, you should contact an immigration attorney to discuss your visa options. It is your responsibility to meet the requirements for the desired visa.
