Medical Students – Audition Rotations
Fourth year medical students interested in a month long audition rotation in one of our residency programs, must meet minimum USMLE or COMLEX board scores before applying. If a program decides to offer auditions, there will be a very limited number of spots available. Please contact the Residency Program Coordinator responsible for the specialty in which you are interested to find out what the minimum board score is, or if they will be offering audition rotations for the upcoming academic year.
