We appreciate your interest in our program and look forward to reviewing your ERAS application. We follow NRMP match regulations and do not personally respond to requests from applicants or their representatives regarding the status of their applications or eligibility via either telephone or email. We will not review any applications received outside of ERAS.
Our interview season runs from mid to late October through January. We match eight applicants to participate in our 3-year training program. We have both a primary care and hospitalist track. We support residents wishing to specialize through various methods, such as shadowing rotations at potential specialty sites, research opportunities, and conference attendance via CME funds.
We expect all applicants to have strong interpersonal and communications skills, and to demonstrate professional behavior, humility and a commitment to Internal Medicine or specialties based on a strong Internal Medicine foundation.
Residency applicants must be eligible to work in the United States.
We will review all applications received, once they are complete. Incomplete applications will be reviewed once all required elements are received. We do have certain minimum criteria, however, that must be met prior to extending an offer for an interview. The criteria include:
- We accept either COMLEX or USMLE scores. We will allow a maximum of one failed attempt. Applications with more than one failed attempt (including the CS/PE portion of Step 2) will not be considered. We do not have a minimum score requirement beyond the passing requirements noted here.
- Barring special circumstances, we do not consider applicants who graduated from medical school greater than three years ago. Notable examples include additional graduate medical training, such as a general surgery residency, or deployment as part of military service.
- We require three letters of recommendation, one of which must be from a physician board-certified in Internal Medicine (either through the AOBIM or ABIM). For applicants who are currently enrolled in, or previously completed, any internship or residency, we require a letter of recommendation from the Program Director, unless the program is closed.
All applicants must have the following for the application to be considered complete:
- Curriculum Vitae
- Personal Statement
- Medical School Transcript
- Graduation from an Accredited Medical School
- Excellent communication in English Three letters of recommendation (one from board-certified IM physician)
- Passed attempts on Step 1 and both portions of Step 2 (USMLE or COMLEX) with no more than one failed attempt, cumulatively
- International Medical Graduates (IMG) must be eligible to work in the United States
Interviewees are invited to a dinner with the residents the evening prior to the interview day in order to meet and greet the current residents in a relaxed, informal environment. The interview day starts with a breakfast at the hospital, where several hospital Administration members as well as residency faculty and current residents are introduced. A community tour is provided, after which we provide a lunch, followed by interviews for the remainder of the afternoon. Applicants will have ample opportunities to interact with residents and faculty throughout the day.
Upon receipt of the completed application, our selection committee will review all materials.
(IMPORTANT CHANGE) The interview season for the 2021-22 resident class has migrated to a virtual format because of COVID-19. For more information, please email Rachel Statler.
