    We are participating in the Supplemental ERAS Application, in which each applicant has 3 gold and 15 silver signalling tokens.  More information about the Supplemental ERAS Application can be found here.

    Post Interview Communication Policy

    The University of Kansas Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology will not contact applicants after their residency interview. 

    Applicants are welcome and encouraged to ask our faculty and residents any questions they have about our program after their interview, but we do not recommend any other post interview communication, including thank you notes, and such communications are never included in ranking considerations.  Communication from candidates about rank order or preference are highly discouraged and may be considered match violations.

    • MyERAS common application and CV*
    • Personal statement*
    • USMLE Step I results*
      • USMLE Step 2 Clinical Knowledge results will be required for ranking
    • Medical school transcripts
    • Three letters of recommendation, one of which must be from a member of your medical school's obstetrics and gynecology department.  One of these letters should be a Standardized Letter of Evaluation (SLOE)
      • One letter of recommendation required for review of application*
    • MSPE Letter

    *Denotes items that must be received before an application will be reviewed

    Applicants are reviewed based on academic record, professional background, personal qualities, recommendations and interviews. The rank list is reviewed in a meeting that includes faculty and present housestaff prior to its submission to the NRMP.

    Invitations are extended via email. Candidates selected for interviews will have an opportunity to meet with faculty and residents on their interview day. 2023 interviews will be conducted electronically to comply with recommendations from CREOG.

    If you have additional questions, or need assistance, please contact Emily Fuchs, Residency Program Coordinator at

    "I chose KU for residency not just because of the great experiences the residents get in both obstetrics and gynecology, but for the sense of family the program has. I could tell from just one day of interacting with the residents and faculty that everybody really cared about each other and I wanted to be a part of that family."
