How to Apply

Application Process:

Our program accepts applications only through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) and participates in the NRMP Match. All interviews for the 2021 Match will be conducted virtually.

The Internal Medicine residency program receives over 4,500 applications per year for our twelve categorical positions.  We base selection upon a number of factors including academic performance, letters of recommendation, personal qualities, clinical performance, and USMLE scores.

Due to the volume of applicants, we cannot guarantee e-mail or phone responses to application or invitation inquiries. All interview scheduling will be done through ERAS Scheduler e-mail.

Supplemental ERAS Application (2022 application cycle):

For the 2022 ERAS® cycle, our program will strongly encourage all applicants to complete a supplemental ERAS application, offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants also will be required to complete the MyERAS application. This is NOT a requirement to be considered for an interview.

The additional information collected will help our program staff learn more about applicants’ medical education journey, including more meaningful information about work, volunteer, and research experiences, and will help us better identify applicants who fit our program environment and mission.

This supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform that is separate from the MyERAS application and must be completed between September 1-30.

Please bookmark the supplemental ERAS application section of the AAMC website to find the latest information, FAQs, and resources.
