International Medical Graduates

ECFMG status report from Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates is required. 

The J-1 alien physician visa sponsored by ECFMG is the preferred visa status for foreign national trainees in all UMN graduate medical education programs; therefore, the Department of Radiation Oncology sponsors only J-1 visas.  We do not sponsor H-1B visas.  More information on the J-1 visa can be found on the UMN-GME webpage.


Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our residency interviews will be conducted all virtually this year. We are committed to making sure that we offer the same experience virtually that we offer in person. 

We will begin conducting interviews in November 2020.
