Osteopathic Medicine, D.O. - Émigré Physicians Program

Osteopathic Medicine, D.O. - Émigré Physicians Program

The Émigré Physician degree program is a full-time, four-year medical education program that offers internationally trained physicians to retrain as doctors of osteopathic medicine in the United States.

Many émigré physicians who come to the U.S. are highly trained and very experienced. However due to various licensure and other relevant regulations, many qualified physicians trained abroad are unable to continue their education or practice their profession the U.S. without proper licensing. This one-of a kind program, allows successful physicians who are accepted to this program to successfully complete all the medical school requirements set by NYITCOM in order to qualify for graduation with the D.O. degree.

Acceptance into the Émigré Physician Program is selective and competitive. Candidates are chosen based upon academic excellence, an in-person interview process, and other requirements.
