Medical Schools that Accept International Students

Posted in: IMGs| MCAT| Pre-Med: Applying

The medical school admissions process is competitive enough as it is! But as an international applicant, it’s even harder. There are a limited number of medical schools in the US that accept or even interview international students.

International applicants are also required to meet an additional set of criteria, such as completing coursework at a US accredited university and demonstrating adequate proficiency in the English language (usually through a TOEFL exam).

Nonetheless, thousands of international students are accepted into international medical
schools in the US every year, including some of the most prestigious North American institutions.

If you are an international student, you should know which MD schools even interview international applicants before starting to make your selections. This list below will help you narrow down your choices to medical schools that interview and accept international students.
