Apply to Our Program

 

We accept applications only via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) from the Association of American Medical Colleges. All residency positions are offered through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP).  

For our program, a complete file included in the Eras application are the following:

  • Dean's Letter aka MSPE
  • Medical School transcript
  • 3 letters of recommendation

Letters from medical school deans are helpful. Minimum eligibility requirements to be considered for an interview are a USMLE Step 1 score grater than 200 (with the addition of Step 2 score preferred), and graduation from medical school within the last 2 years. Preference is given to graduates of US medical schools. Once an application file is complete and the applicant has met our eligibility criteria, the program evaluates the applicant for an invitation to interview, and invitations to interview are extended via email to those selected. We interview approximately 80 candidates in October, November, December, and January.
