There are currently over 160 medical schools in the United States, and more than 80 of those schools accept international students as transfer applicants. The most common reason for transferring is that you’ve completed your pre-med requirements at another institution. However, if you’re like many students who aren’t sure what they want to study, a medical school transfer may be right for you.
The first step in transferring is to determine which school is right for your needs and goals. You can do this by researching the different schools and their respective programs on websites such as USNews or The Princeton Review. You should also do some research on each school’s transfer policies, as well as speak with current students who have transferred into the program from similar backgrounds as yours (i.e., non-traditional students).
Once you have narrowed down your choices, it will be important to apply early decision or early action if possible (some schools offer both options). If neither option is available, then apply regular decision which means submitting all required materials before November 1st; however, note that there are fewer spots available for regular
What U.S. Medical Schools Accept International Transfers
The majority of U.S. medical schools accept international transfers, but the process is complicated and you should be sure to keep these things in mind:
- You will have to meet all of the school’s requirements for transfer admission. This includes submitting all required application materials and paying any application fees, as well as providing proof of English proficiency and completing an interview with an admissions representative from the school you wish to transfer into.
- You will need to submit transcripts from your previous institution(s). You will also need to provide proof of your citizenship or immigration status if applicable, as well as proof that you have completed at least one year of college-level coursework before applying for a transfer into a U.S.-based medical school program.
If you’re interested in transferring to a U.S. medical school from another country, there are a few things you’ll want to know.
First, most medical schools won’t accept international transfers, but a few do. If you’re interested in applying for an international transfer, make sure you find out which schools will accept your application first. You can find this information on the school’s website or by contacting them directly.
Second, if a school does accept international transfers, it may not admit new students every year. This means that if you apply for an international transfer and aren’t accepted because they don’t have any available spots at the time of your application, then you may have to wait another year before reapplying again with more updated information about yourself such as work experience or volunteer work done since your last application was submitted (more on that below).
International transfers are a great way to get a top-notch medical education at a school closer to home. U.S. medical schools that accept international transfer students include:
• University of Texas at Austin
• University of California-San Diego
• Tulane University School of Medicine

First off: transfers are hard! Only about 10% of transfer applicants are accepted, so it’s important to be prepared. But don’t worry—we’re here to help! Here are some things to consider as you apply:
1) Choose a school that fits your needs. Look at the schools’ websites and find one that has a program that matches your interests and needs.
2) Be sure to pay attention to the requirements for admission. This can include GPA requirements, standardized test scores, and letters of recommendation from professors or other professionals who know you well.
3) Apply early! It will take time for your application materials to be processed by the admissions office, so make sure everything is submitted before the deadline (which is usually around March).
