Eligible candidates must have completed an ACGME-accredited pathology residency in the United States.
Applicants should also provide:
- Three letters of recommendation (at least one of these letters should be from an academic dean of the applicant's medical school. Applicants for advanced-level training should also include a letter from the director of their current pathology residency program.)
- Passing USMLE Step I and II scores, preferably with a minimum score of 195 for Step I and 210 for Step II, or an equivalent examination. Applicants who pass their Step I on the first attempt will receive stronger consideration than those who do not.
Graduates of American medical schools must have passed USMLE Step III (or equivalent) to participate in a Scott & White program beyond the first 12 months of training. An extension of six additional months may be made if extenuating personal circumstances exist. There is no extension beyond 18 months of training.
Foreign medical graduate applicants who received their diploma within five years of their application date are preferred. The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine – Scott & White sponsors only the J1 visa for those individuals who require a visa in order to be work-authorized.
