How to Apply

We participate in the match at the R-1 level each year. There are two distinct tracks for a total of four slots. Application should be made through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  Nothing else is required. The ERAS Application acceptance cutoff date is Oct. 31 at midnight each year. A group consisting of five full-time faculty members and at least one clinical faculty member makes up the selection committee. Each application is reviewed by two committee members. All the applications are discussed, and approximately 40-50 are selected for interview. After the interviews are complete, the rank order for the purposes of the match is established by the committee members conducting the interviews, with appropriate input from the resident staff who either know or have had interactions with the candidates.

Interviews will be held in Jan. 6 & 7, 2017, with a welcome reception the evening before. Special pricing for a one-night stay at a reputable hotel is available. After the interviews are complete, the rank order for the purposes of the match is established by the committee members conducting the interviews, with appropriate input from the resident staff who either know or have had interactions with the candidates.

All residents are taken through the match and selections based solely on qualifications. Each year minorities and women have been ranked.
