Doctor of Medicine Professional Licensure Disclosure

34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v)    Institutions are required to make public whether a program is designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional license or certification that is required for employment in an occupation, or is  advertised as meeting such requirements. Institutions are required to make public, for each state, whether the completion of that program would be sufficient to meet licensure requirements in a state for that occupation, did not meet requirements or has not made a determination.

For more information on professional licensure requirements in medicine, please contact Jamie Cvengros, PhD, assistant dean of accreditation.

Rush Medical College (RMC) at Rush University offers a number of programs that lead to a professional license or certification. Provided below is licensure information regarding Rush Medical College’s Doctor of Medicine program.

While completing their RMC medical degree, students will take Step 1 and both parts of Step 2 (CK and CS) of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). The third and final step of the USMLE is taken during postgraduate residency training. The USMLE is a three-step examination for medical licensure in the U.S. and assesses the doctor’s knowledge, clinical skills, and communication skills. Students must pass all three steps in order to be eligible for state licensure. Students are able to receive a training license based on Step 1 & 2 alone and then a temporary license after Step 3.

Rush Medical College makes every effort to ensure information about educational requirements for licensure or certification information is current; however, licensure regulations are frequently revised. Separate from educational requirements, state licensure boards may require applicants to complete professional examinations, background checks, years of professional experience, jurisprudence exams, etc.
