• Candidates must be at least 18 years of age.
• Candidates must hold United States citizenship, permanent residency, or a valid visa. International applicants must provide proper documentation in order for their applications to be considered.


English Proficiency

International applicants, foreign-born U.S. citizens or residents must be able to demonstrate English proficiency. This can be done in one of three ways:
• Proof of at least two years of study [60 credits] at a U.S. college or university (or at a foreign college or university where English is the primary language and where English was the medium of instruction). These credits cannot include any courses in English as a Second Language (ESL).
• Proof of professional licensure in New York State as an M.D., Dentist, Chiropractor, Physical Therapist, R.N., Nutritionist, Physician Assistant, Occupational Therapist, Pharmacist, Psychologist, Veterinarian, or Massage Therapist. Other health-care professionals may submit licensing credentials for review by the NYCTCM Admissions Office in order to support their claim of English proficiency.
• Score of 61 or higher on the Internet Based Test (IBT) of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), with a minimum speaking exam score of 26 and a minimum listening exam score of 22; or a level 6.0 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam.
