Application Process

The SIU Urology Division participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) where application materials are transmitted from medical schools and the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) to selected programs via the internet.  Applicants are responsible for accessing the proper equipment to complete the application process and for submitting all required documents.
Complete applicant files are reviewed by the Urology Residency Program Director and Urology Division Chief to determine the 40 to 50 individuals who will be invited to interview with SIU Urology.  The applicants are contacted via e-mail through ERAS. 


Our program will only take residents registered through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) at the first year level.  We do not offer preliminary positions.  The deadline for application is November 30.  However, applicants with files completed by November 1 are more competitive.  Interviews are conducted from mid-October through mid-December.
