How to Apply

Our residency program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Our ACGME Identification Number is: 320-35-11-176. Applications will only be accepted through ERAS.

Application Requirements

Through ERAS, please submit the following:

  • Personal statement
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Photograph (optional)
  • Medical School transcript
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) Letter
  • Three Letters of Recommendation
  • USMLE scores
  • If applicable, your standard certificate from the ECFMG. This is required prior to the start of residency.

Criteria for Selection to Interview

We accept both USMLE and COMLEX scores. There are no cut-off scores for performance on either, but there is a preference given to applicants who pass their examinations on the first attempt and demonstrate strong academic and clinical performance in medical school.
