Information for Applicants

The program will be conducting interviews virtually for the application season 2023-2024.

Current seniors or graduates from a medical school in the United States or Canada, accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) or graduation from a college of osteopathic medicine in the United States, accredited by the American Osteopathic Association Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (AOACOCA); or graduation from a medical school outside of the United States or Canada with a valid certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) prior to appointment.

International medical graduates are sponsored primarily on J-1 visas.  On a case-by-case basis, we will consider H1B visa sponsorship.  The program prefers a minimum of six months of U.S. clinical experience and graduation from medical school within the past 5 years.

Application Process

Our program receives applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS).  We also participate in program signaling.

All appointments are made through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Candidates must register through the NRMP website. Personal interviews are by invitation only and are based on the applicant's academic performance, United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) scores and/or COMLEX-USA scores, letters of recommendation and other accomplishments as detailed in the ERAS application.  Interviews are conducted on selected dates from October through February. If selected for an interview, applicants will be notified by email through ERAS. We are unable to provide applicants with a status report regarding their application or selection for interview.  

Applicants should complete USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK exams (or equivalent COMLEX exams) and release their scores to ensure that we can view the results of these exams before the NRMP rank list deadline in mid-February.
