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 (2023 application cycle):

For the 2023 ERAS® cycle, our program will be collecting and reviewing data from applicants’ supplemental ERAS applications. Completion of the standard MyERAS application is a requirement; completion of the supplemental ERAS application is optional. In its second year of use, the supplemental ERAS application is designed to help applicants share more information about themselves and assist our program in finding applicants that fit our program’s setting and mission. There is no cost to applicants and participation is optional.

The supplemental ERAS application provides: geographic preferences (by division and by urban or rural setting); information about an applicant’s most meaningful experiences and other impactful life events, if applicable; and program signals.

The supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform that is separate from the MyERAS application and must be completed between August 1 and September 16, 2022.
