Information for Applicants
We accept applications only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Your medical school dean's office or the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) will provide additional information about how you can access the process.
Faculty members review applications daily beginning early in September, when ERAS officially opens. If your application meets the program's criteria, the program coordinator will invite you via electronic mail to schedule an interview. We interview on Tuesdays from mid-October through the end of January. During your visit, we try to give you a flavor of the program by having you meet residents and faculty in both formal and informal settings. It is our goal not only to get to know you, but to give you the chance to know us; we regard "fit" as a shared goal. Toward that end, we encourage second look visits for those who want a less structured, more in-depth exposure to our program.
