All applicants must participate in the National Residency Matching Program. Applications are accepted ONLY through AAMC's Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) https://www.aamc.org/services/eras/ . This allows equal evaluation of all applicants as well as maintaining a complete online database and using other powerful functions contained in the program. Foreign Medical Graduates may find useful information at the ACGME Website under GMEducation Useful Information / Entry of Foreign-Born Medical Graduates to the United States.
Materials needed for a complete application in ERAS (to be transmitted through ERAS program):
- Curriculum Vitae
- Current color photograph
- Personal statement
- Medical school transcript
- Dean's Letter
- Minimum three, maximum four, letters of recommendation
- USMLE certified transcript scores
- ECFMG Status Report (foreign medical graduates)
- COMLEX certified transcript scores (osteopaths)
It is the responsibility of the applicant to solicit the letters of recommendation and to see that they are submitted to the appropriate office at their medical college (e.g. student affairs or academic affairs office) for scanning and transmission to our program.
If you have questions about the ERAS system, you may contact the Association of American Medical Colleges by telephone at 202/828-0413, fax 202/828-1125, or visit the ERAS website.
It is mandatory that all application materials be received by October 15th. All completed applications are reviewed by committee and a letter of invitation for interview is e-mailed through ERAS to each candidate considered to be competitive. The concept of interview by invitation only gives the residency faculty the best opportunity to evaluate competitive candidates in as fair a manner as possible. This policy averts a great deal of unnecessary traveling expenses by candidates who are not considered to be competitive based on their application credentials. Furthermore, if you complete an sub-I here you will be interviewed for the residency program during your rotation.
Interviews by invitation are scheduled for December 1-2, 2017.
