Applications are accepted from foreign citizens who have completed at least 90 semester hours of college coursework in the United States at an accredited institution. The admissions procedures are the same as US citizens. All applicants accepted to the MD/PhD Program at SUNY Upstate Medical University receive a stipend of $24,513 and tuition waiver, regardless of nationality.

All else being equal, priority will be given to candidates who are US citizens or permanent residents. However, non-US residents with a strong record of academic research achievement are encouraged to apply.

If you have completed a minimum of 90 credit hours at a college or university in the United States or Canada, the TOEFL [Test of English as a Foreign language]is not required.

Upon acceptance to SUNY Upstate Medical University, our International Student Advisor, Ms. Jennifer Abbott, can assist international students who need to obtain or amend a visa to study at SUNY Upstate.

Students may apply for private loans through US banks, providing a US resident co-signs the loan.
