Thank you for your interest in the Baylor Family Medicine Residency at Garland. Please be assured that we review every ERAS application in its entirety. These are the guidelines we use to determine eligibility for interview:
1. USMLE scores in the range of 80. A score below 80 on one step does not automatically preclude an applicant from being invited for an interview. We look at and consider all components of the application. Although we prefer first attempt passage of the USMLE, we follow the guidelines established by the Texas Medical Board on the number of attempts on the USMLE.
2. Medical school must be on the Texas Medical Board’s list of medical schools that “do not have to prove substantial equivalence.”
3. Applicant must be eligible for full licensure in the state of Texas. Please see www.tmb.state.tx.us for further clarification
4. Some US clinical experience is required.
5. Legally authorized to work in the United States for Baylor without any further action by Baylor.
6. Graduation from medical school within the past three years is required, and you must be able to document what you have been doing for continuing medical education since graduation from medical school.
Again, we are pleased that you are considering the Baylor Family Medicine Residency for your post graduate training and look forward to receiving your ERAS application.
