Application Process

All applicants must participate in the National Residency Matching Program. Applications are accepted ONLY through AAMC's Electronic Residency Application Service (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.

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
  • Standarized letters of recommendation (3)
  • USMLE certified transcript scores
  • ECFMG Status Report (foreign medical graduates)
  • COMLEX certified transcript scores (osteopaths)

For the 2023 ERAS® cycle, our program will be collecting and reviewing data from applicants' supplemental ERAS applications. Completion of the standard MyERAS application is a requirement; completion of the supplemental ERAS application is optional.

In its second year of use, the supplemental ERAS application is designed to help applicants share more information about themselves and assist our program in finding applicants that fit our program's setting and mission. There is no cost to applicants and participation is optional.

The supplemental ERAS application includes:

  • Geographic preferences (by division and by urban or rural setting);
  • Information about an applicant's most meaningful experiences and other impactful life events, if applicable; and
  • Program signals

The supplemental ERAS application will be delivered via email to applicants with a unique URL that is separate from the MyERAS application and must be completed between August 1 and September 16, 2022.

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 November 1. 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 a sub-I here you will be interviewed for the residency program during your rotation. 

Interview dates: In person, January 13-14, 2023
