- No. The NRMP verifies candidates on the final rank-order list with the ECFMG to ensure you have passed Step 1 and 2CK. If NRMP is unable to verify this information at that time, candidates are withdrawn from the Match. All international graduates MUST be ECFMG-certified prior to start of residency training.
What if I have a USMLE/COMELX fail?
- We will consider applications with 2 or fewer fails, but rarely more.
Is there a graduation year cut-off?
- We will rarely consider application from candidates who have graduated more than 2 years from day 1 of residency.
Do you offer externships, observerships, research experiences, volunteer experiences, or pre-match positions?
We review the overall application and the applicant’s fit with our program. Meeting our criteria will not guarantee you an interview. CMMC FMR does not discriminate with regard to sex, race, age, religion, color, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, or any other applicable legally protected status.
Anti-Racism and Non-Discrimination
PURPOSE: To outline the program’s position toward and response to any act of discrimination affecting the learning environment of residents of the FMR.
CMMC FMR is committed to creating an environment where resident learners can participate in education free from the threat of discrimination and harassment by colleagues, supervisors, teachers, peers, other staff, or patients. This is an adjunctive policy to CMH’s anti-harassment policy to outline the specific protections in place for vulnerable resident learners and provide a clear pathway for resolution if resident learners witness or experience any disruption to their education due to harassment or discrimination.
No resident shall be excluded from participation in, denied benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination in the provision of care or educational activity on the grounds of race, color, national origin, citizenship status, ancestry, age, sex, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, disability, other legally protected basis or group membership.
If any member of the FMR team witnesses or directly experiences discrimination or harassment perpetrated by another team member (staff, other learner, attending physician) directed toward a resident learner (including themselves), they are expected to report it immediately so it can be addressed and the program can ensure a safe learning environment for all. Reporting options:
- Reports directly to the Program Director are preferred, but if for some reason the individual is uncomfortable making report to the Program Director, they can make a report to
- John Alexander, MD, the Chair of the Graduate Medical Education Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org; or
- Tonya Bailey-Curry, LCSW at email@example.com. Tonya Bailey-Curry is contracted with CMMC FMR to receive reports of harassment confidentially (meaning she will not share the identity of the reporting individual with the program if requested). She will meet with residents to provide support and provide anonymous reports with recommendations for resolution to the program.
