No. The only applications we review are those that are submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service, also known as ERAS. Learn more about ERAS here.
All communication with applicants is via e-mail. We review applications on a rolling basis. We will review an application once we receive the ERAS application form and personal statement, medical school transcript and USMLE or COMLEX scores.
Once our Selection Committee reviews your application, you will be notified of the status. The possibilities are: an offer of an interview, a denial of an interview, or being placed in a holding category until we receive the Medical Student Performance Evaluation/Dean's Letter that is transmitted to programs by ERAS beginning on October 1.
We do residency interviews from late October to the end of January. We interview on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. We generally do not interview during the last week of December and the first week of January.
Typically, eight to 10 potential interview dates are included in the offer of an interview e-mail. You will be asked to provide, in rank order, three of the offered dates that work for you. Once your e-mail is reviewed, you will be assigned to one of those dates. You will receive a confirmation e-mail verifying the date and providing details about the schedule, the location and other instructions needed by applicants coming to interview.
We focus interview days on the Residency Program. If you have research or subspecialty career interests, please include that information in your e-mail when you reply to the offer of an interview e-mail. We will contact you to arrange for you to meet with research and/or subspecialty staff following the completion of the residency interview day schedule. Typically, there is time to arrange these meetings in the late afternoon of the interview day.
