How to Apply
All applications are accepted through ERAS at www.aamc.org/eras. We do not accept paper applications. We require three Letters Of Recommendation. We review the Dean's letter, the medical school transcript, USMLE scores, personal statements, research activity, etc.
At a minimum, you must pass the USMLE exams on the first attempt. We do not divulge the “minimum scores” that we expect from our applicants.
For those of you inquiring about our program who are FMGs, we sponsor J1 visas and H1B visas. If you are planning to get an H1B, you must agree to go for the premium expedited process. FMGs are expected to already have step 2 CK and CS scores (and should be working on their step 3 exams, if they haven't already sat for them).
We do not provide any observerships or externships, due to the fact that we have many medical students rotating through our department at any given time, and cannot accommodate so many people at once.
Our fully accredited program has 20 categorical residents, and we fill five PGY-1 categorical positions each year.
Thank you for your interest in our program.
