  4. Official transcript
  5. USMLE scores (Step I required, Step II and Step III if available). COMLEX scores are accepted.
  6. At least three letters of recommendation. It is recommended that the letters be written by someone who is very familiar with your work (research or clinical) and can fully describe your skill sets.
  7. Personal statement. We encourage you to use the personal statement to tell us how and why you became interested in anesthesiology and what you can potentially contribute to the field. We also ask that candidates tell us about their relevant life experiences, core value system, and unique skill sets.
