Arrow Examples of required documents

It depends on the place you are doing the rotation in.

Generally speaking these are some of the documents required:
  • USMLE Scores (not all of them)
  • Proof of vaccine and TB status
  • Visa status documentation
  • Medical school diploma or dean letter
  • TOEFL or CS pass (not all of them)
  • Letter of intent
And some other documents according to each clinic/hospital/university
