Application Process

Residency Application Information (2023-2024)

The Anesthesiology Residency Program at the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita will accept applications only via the Electronic Residency Application Services (ERAS) from the Association of American Medical College (AAMC).

ERAS application materials are distributed, each year, from the dean's office of participating medical schools after June 30. Applicants from non-participating medical schools should contact the AAMC for information on ERAS.

Our program is a four-year program beginning at the PGY-1 level. Applicants with prior graduate medical education (internship or residency) will be considered only if the number of qualified applicants from senior medical students is insufficient.
