International Applicants

Any applicant for a GME program who has completed his/her medical education outside of the United States must obtain certification from the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) in order to participate in Good Samaritan’s GME program.

Non-U.S. citizens applying to Good Samaritan’s residency programs must either: (i) have unlimited authorization to work in the United States (such as a Green Card or Employment Authorization Document); or (ii) obtain J-1 visa sponsorship from the ECFMG.  Good Samaritan’s Graduate Medical Education staff will assist in the application for J-1 status.  If, for any reason, an applicant is unable to obtain sponsorship from the ECFMG, the applicant’s offer to participate in the residency program may be withdrawn.

Sponsorship for visas other than J-1 may be available for Fellowship programs on a case-by-case basis, upon prior approval by the Chairman of the Department of Graduate Medical Education.

Eligibility Requirements

GSHMC programs select trainees among eligible applicants on the basis of training program-related criteria such as their preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills, and personal qualities such as motivation and integrity, as well as professionalism. Our programs do not discriminate with regard to sex, race, age, religion, color, national origin, disability, or any other applicable legally protected status.
