Applicants for clinical trainee positions at MD Anderson who earned degrees or obtained educational credentials outside the United States that will be used to meet the minimum education requirement for the position of consideration must submit a credential evaluation prior to the extension of an offer. Only evaluations conducted by an agency listed below will be accepted.
The evaluating company must provide:
- a certified translation of your diploma, if not in English;
- verification of accreditation of the foreign university;
- the equivalency of non-U.S. degree(s) to a U.S. degree(s); and
- verification of your attendance at and graduation from that university.
All expenses to obtain the evaluation will be the responsibility of the candidate. If you have already obtained a credential evaluation from one of the agencies listed, please instruct the evaluation company to mail the original evaluation to your department of appointment. Neither an ECFMG certificate nor a FCVS packet can be substituted for a credential evaluation.
*On September 30, the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) ended the foreign credential evaluation service of International Education Services (IES).
