How to Apply

We participate in the match at the R-1 level each year. Application should be made through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Nothing else is required. The ERAS Application acceptance cutoff date is October 31 at midnight each year. A group consisting of five full-time faculty members and at least one clinical faculty member constitute the selection committee. Each application is reviewed by two committee members. All the applications are discussed, and approximately 30 are selected for interview. After the interviews are complete the rank order for the purposes of the match is established by the committee members conducting the interviews, with appropriate input from the resident staff who either know or have had interactions with the candidates.

Interviews for 2015-2016 will be held in January 9 & 10, 2015, with a welcome reception the evening before. Special pricing for a one-night stay at the Marriott Hotel is available. After the interviews are complete the rank order for the purposes of the match is established by the committee members conducting the interviews, with appropriate input from the resident staff who either know or have had interactions with the candidates.

All residents are taken through the match and selections based solely on qualifications. Each year minorities and women have been ranked. Since 1995, we have had four female, two African-American, two Asian, and one Indian resident. In addition, we have had two African-American research fellows and one female research fellow.
