The deadline for submitting all materials is December 15.

- All applicants must be within 4 years of graduation from an LCME accredited medical school or direct patient care activity (either as an independent practitioner or as a trainee)
- Candidates must have passed USMLE Step I; there is no minimum score requirement
- Completion of a sub-internship/acting internship in either medicine or pediatrics; this does not need to be completed before you apply
- International applicants must have an ECFMG Certificate in addition to three months of direct clinical experience in a U.S. hospital. Observerships and non-clinical graduate work such as research are not accepted. VCU only sponsors J-1 visas.
Interview offers will be extended based on a holistic review of the entire application packet.
