The Wright State University Plastic Surgery Residency Program has one preliminary position via the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). It is your obligation to obtain this information from each program before you apply. You can access additional information about our residency program via the American Medical Association's FREIDA Online.

Register via the Electronic Resident Application System (ERAS). Only electronic applications are accepted. You will need to provide:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Personal statement
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (dean's letter) from your medical school
  • Official transcripts from your medical school

The deadline for receipt of applications for academic year 2015-2016 is November 30, 2014. We do not accept applications received through the U.S. postal service and we do not sponsor any type of visa.

First consideration for the categorical position will be given to applicants with:

  • Minimum USMLE Step I score of 230
  • Research in progress or published
  • Class ranking in the upper quartile

The above criteria are intended to serve as guidelines only.


All applicant files are screened as soon as the dean's letters are received and files are complete. Invitations are extended to those applicants with credentials suggesting a strong candidacy for plastic surgery. Applicants are invited to visit our program on select days in December and January. The visit generally is a little more than a half day in duration. An overview of the plastic surgery program is provided. Prospective residents have the opportunity to meet with nine to ten faculty members, including the program director. During the visit, residents are available to answer questions. The day concludes with lunch and a tour of Miami Valley Hospital.
