With students and faculty drawn from more than 140 countries, we truly are an international institution, with a uniquely global perspective, perfectly poised to help educate students in this rapidly shrinking world.

Entry points, requirements and curriculum
Entry points are available for students from any education system around the world—including a four-year program for those entering with a traditional baccalaureate degree and five-, six-, and seven-year programs for those entering with international degrees. Students presenting secondary school (or Advanced Level or International Baccalaureate) credentials are placed into the five- or six- year programs based on academic background and performance.
English language requirements
If English is not their principal language, the applicant must have achieved a minimum score of 600 (paper-based), 250 (computer-based), or 100 (Internet-based) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or a 7.0 overall score on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
Medical college admission test (MCAT) exemption
International students are exempt from the MCAT admission requirement. Based on the complexities of different curricula from around the world, we do not encourage our non-US and non-Canadian citizens or permanent residents (including those educated in North America) to sit the MCAT. It is a US-centric exam and international students tend to not score well.
