Eligibility Criteria


  • Must be fluent in the English language. 
  • Needs to have completed medical education with language of instruction as English or have passed the TOEFL or IELTS.
  • Must have passed any Step exams taken on the first attempt.
  • Must be a medical graduate and have completed their medical education in the last five years (no later than 2018). 
  • Medical students are not accepted for the program. 
  • Visiting international candidates must hold a valid visa. Our Institution does not sponsor visas.
  • Must be fully vaccinated against COVID, including booster if your second dose was greater than 2 months prior to your observership.
  • Once your application is accepted and you book a session, you will need to send a non-refundable deposit of U.S. $50 to hold your spot, along with your initial documents.  This deposit will be applied to your BIO Program fee when you make your payment for the Program.  
    • For example, if you were to attend for 2 weeks and your cost is U.S. $1500, you would have already paid U.S. $50, so when the time comes to pay for the observership, you will only need to pay U.S. $1450.

The following documents and payments will be required to be sent via email once your application is accepted:
  • Copy of your medical diploma
  • A copy of the biographic page of your passport
  • Step Exam Score Report Document(s)
