Eight first-year resident positions are offered each academic year. We accept applications through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) beginning in September of each year. When searching for our program, enter our ACGME code 1201612701. Please note that the program does not offer opportunities for observation or rotations at this time.

Each application received from ERAS is reviewed by the program director, an attending, and a resident who has been selected for this process.
Applicants are screened with special attention paid to:
- Curriculum Vitae
- Medical School Transcripts
- USMLE 1 or COMLEX 1 Exam Score
- USMLE 2 or COMLEX 2 Exam Score (must complete prior to NRMP ranking)
- Dean's Letter
- Three Letters of Recommendation

Interviews for the 20/21 recruitment season will be held entirely virtually. Beginning October 26, 2020, and continuing on a rolling basis, the program coordinator will notify each applicant selected for an interview via ERAS. Dates for interviews and additional information will be provided at that time. Candidates should utilize MyERAS to select their desired interview date and time. Candidates can also use MyERAS to place themselves on a waitlist for dates that are already filled. This entire process is self-service.
The screening process does not consider gender, sexual orientation, age, race, religion, ethnic origin, economic status, veteran status, or place of residence.
