Residency Program

Columbus Central University graduates are completely qualified to take an interest in residency preparing and licensure in the United States. We trusts that one of the elements for an exceptional accomplishment while in transit to wind up a specialist is the quality of our Clinical Rotation Program, which is firmly administered and takes place in United States showing healing facilities and clinical focuses.


The United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) has four sections, prompting licensure. The USMLE Step 1 is taken promptly after the finishing of the Basic Sciences or inside the initial nine weeks of Clinical Science; that is, toward the finish of Semester 6. Center Rotations are accessible just to understudies who have passed the First Step of the USMLE. An understudy who has effectively finished at least 48 weeks of clinical preparing including Internal Medicine and who has passed USMLE Step 1 is qualified to be confirmed to make the USMLE Stride 2 CK and Step 2 CS (Clinical Knowledge and Clinical Skills) . Worldwide medicinal graduates (IMGs) who are affirmed by ECFMG or seeking after ECFMG Certification ought to be comfortable with these controls.

If you don't mind Note: Students need to pass Step 2 CK and CS in a most extreme of three endeavors, and inside two logbook years of getting to be qualified, so as to get the Doctor of Medicine degree from Columbus Central University. USMLE Step 3, the last advance for licensure, is taken after graduation or amid (or at the conclusion) of residency preparing.


The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) is a universal placement service, which significantly optimizes the chances of getting a residency position. Applications have to be submitted between July and October for the following July session therefore the application deadline is October. Applications can be obtained from NRMP’s website.

In order to be eligible to participate in the NRMP, students must have passed USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK and CS, by December of the year prior to which they wish to enter residency training. Additionally, they must be scheduled to graduate medical school on or before May 31. Upon registering with the NRMP, students should submit and application to each residency program, which they are interested in, and undergo an interview.

In February, students are required to submit a “rank order list” to the NRMP. It’s a preference list of the programs in the order of most desirable to the least. Simultaneously, all the residency programs submit their rank order lists of the candidates they have interviewed.

A computerized system begins the matching process, which results are released in March. A student, who has matched at a specific program is obligated to start the residency. A student, who has failed to match or is not eligible to enter the NRMP, will be still able to apply to residency programs by obtaining a position “outside the match”. Simultaneously with the NRMP results released in March, a publication listing all unfilled residency positions is sent to all those who had participated in the NRMP, but failed to match.


All residency programs as a major aspect of the application procedure require:

  • All attended medical schools transcript(s),
  • A Dean’s Letter from a current school
  • Three letters of recommendation

Most projects require the transcript and Dean's Letter to be authentic (sent specifically from the school) and the letters of suggestion to be secret (sent straightforwardly from the prescribing people). For a few projects, nonetheless, it might be conceivable to send informal duplicates of the transcript and letters specifically with the application, and afterward have official/secret firsts sent just if the understudy is welcomed for a meeting. Understudies ought to check this issue with each program, before sending the application.

A Dean's Letter is an archive issued by the Dean of Clinical Science that contains data about an understudy's scholastic execution and extracts from letters of proposal in the understudy's document.

If you don't mind Note: Students are required to present a Dean's Letter Request Form (downloadable from our site) to the Clinical Department for their Dean's Letter. The Department will require a resume and an individual articulation to be sent alongside each demand.


Residency programs start July first of every year. So as to be qualified, students are required to show the accompanying reports by May 31st:

  • Passing scores on USMLE Step 1
  • Passing scores on USMLE Step 2 CK and Step 2 CS
  • CCU’s graduate diploma
  • An ECFMG Certificate

The application procedure is unpredictable, and due dates are basic. Most residency programs acknowledge applications from July to December for passage the next July. Subsequently, students should apply to every one of the projects, they have an enthusiasm for, and get applications as right on time as could be allowed. Meetings are for the most part directed from September to January; if welcomed, understudies should go to.

The most ideal approach to get comfortable with programs and their delivers is to get a duplicate of the American Medical Association (AMA) Graduate Medical Education Directory (likewise called the "green book") from any restorative library or book shop.
