Applying for Residency
Four first-year resident positions are offered each academic year, which begins in late June. Residency committee members from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology review all applications and invite selected applicants for interviews. A completed application must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). All interview invitations will be extended through ERAS.
The ERAS application should include:
- Personal Statement
- Dean's Letter
- Three Letters of Recommendation (Chair or Program Director not required)
- Board Scores
Applicants who take USMLE Step II and receive their results after they have applied, should make sure that the Program receives the new scores. We do not require prior U.S. clinical experience for foreign medical graduates, but such experience is helpful. We do not sponsor H1b Visas.
The deadline for application is October 1st. Interviews are conducted October through December.
