Application Requirements for U.S. or Canadian Medical/Osteopathic School Graduates


United States or Canadian medical school graduates must graduate from an LCME-accredited or AAO-accredited school.

In addition, applications require:

  • Dean's letter
  • Medical school transcript
  • Photo
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Personal statement
  • USMLE transcript or COMLEX transcript
  • Candidate must be able to be licensed in the state of South Dakota, which mandates passage of each USMLE component in three or less attempts, and completion of all three USMLE components within a seven-year time span

The program does not sponsor J-1 and H1-B visas (candidate must bear costs), but will assist with the necessary paperwork. We are exempt from H1-B cap (Note: We do not allow F-1 visas with OPT.)

Our typical interview day starts at 8 a.m. and concludes by approximately 1 p.m.
