Licensing Policy

MT Licensing

All residents are required to renew their MT licenses annually in June, regardless of whether or not you already hold an MD license. Renewal forms will be disbursed in the months prior to the renewal deadline. Forms must be filled out completely, signed, and accompanied by a check for $15, made payable to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This check is not the responsibility of the DSE office. Salary promotion is commensurate with completion of the licensing renewal. The Graduate Medical Office will not promote your salary to the next clinical level without a copy of your renewed license.

USMLE

Step 1 and Step 2 are required to enter your second year of training and must be presented to the Education Office prior to MT License Renewal. Residents entering the third year of training must submit a USMLE Step 3 passing score to obtain an MT License.
