For GME Applicants

Tufts Medical Center is committed to providing exceptional training and mentoring for our residents and fellows. One thing that really sets us apart is the fact that even though we are a large academic medical center, our trainees are essential members of our multidisciplinary treatment teams that work to make patient care better.

All applications should be sent through ERAS or directly to the program that you wish to apply to. If you have any questions related to your program application or the interview process please contact the coordinator of the program to which you are applying.

Initial Limited License Application

This application is for physicians who are enrolled in a post-graduate program in healthcare facilities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and have never held a license in the state of Massachusetts.  Please return your application to your program coordinator promptly to avoid licensing delays. Board regulations require that an applicant for a limited license must submit evidence of having achieved a passing score on Steps 1 and 2 of the USMLE, the first two levels of the COMLEX exam, or having received a certificate from the MCCQE.

Initial Limited License Application

The same license application link will be used by those trainees looking to renew limited medical license or complete a program change application for limited medical license. 

Full Licenses

Some trainees may prefer to obtain a MA Full license.  It is the responsibility of the physician to obtain and/or maintain licensure for the duration of their training if they apply for or have a Full license.
