Application Process

How to Apply

The residency program selects six applicants per year from over 500 applications. Applications are accepted only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). No other applications will be accepted. A completed application includes: an official copy of USMLE or COMLEX scores, an official medical school transcript, a Dean's letter, and at least three letters of reference from faculty members familiar with the applicant's performance. Additionally, foreign graduates must submit a valid ECFMG certificate. It should be noted that the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology does not sponsor visa applicants.

The deadline for receipt of complete applications is December 1. After careful review, highly selected applicants are invited for formal interviews which are held from October through December.

The interview process includes a formal presentation by our residents, program overview with our Program Director, Chairman and residents, interviews with members of the Residency Interview Committee, and a tour of our facilities. Breakfast and lunch are provided. Due to the volume of applications received, we cannot notify everyone who has applied to our residency in the event we are unable to offer an interview.

The Department of Graduate Medical Education is responsible for setting policy relevant to application for residency training positions. All residency programs employ the standard national Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Programs must not discriminate with regard to sex, race, age, religion, color, national origin, disability or veteran status.
