What really sets us apart is the fact that, even though we are a large academic medical center, our trainees are essential members of our multidisciplinary treatment teams that work to make patient care better.

Helpful forms and resources:


All applications should be sent through ERAS or directly to the program that you wish to apply to. If you have any questions related to your program application or the interview process please contact the coordinator of the program to which you are applying.

For Foreign Medical Graduates

Each year, we have new trainees join us from countries around the globe. If you are interested in one of our residency or fellowship programs and are a foreign medical graduate, please visit the ECFMG site for more information.

Tufts Medical Center sponsors J-1 training visas.

Massachusetts License

House staff are required to hold a valid Massachusetts medical license during their training. Please choose the appropriate license application:. 

Initial limited license application

This application is for physicians who are enrolled in a post-graduate program in healthcare facilities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and have never held a license in the state of Massachusetts.  Please return your application to your program coordinator promptly to avoid licensing delays. Board regulations require that an applicant for a limited license must submit evidence of having achieved a passing score on Steps 1 and 2 of the USMLE, the first two levels of the COMLEX exam, or having received a certificate from the MCCQE.

The same license application link will be used by those trainees looking to renew limited medical license or complete a program change application for limited medical license. 

Full license application

Some trainees may prefer to obtain a MA full license.  It is the responsibility of the physician to obtain and maintain licensure for the duration of their training if they apply for or have a full license.

Note: If you hold or are applying for a full MA license, please inform the coordinator of the training program you are entering.
