How to Apply for Internal Medicine Residency

Internal Medicine Residency Program


Applications can be submitted this fall through ERAS at Complete details and timelines for individual programs are available on the ERAS website.

Three letters of recommendation are required. We review a dean's letter, transcript, USMLE/COMLEX scores etc. Both J1 visas and a limited number of H1 visas are accepted. No visa type is guaranteed and a passing step 3 result is required by match day for the possibility of an H1 visa. 

We do not have minimum score requirements; however, we do look at number of attempts. We do not require US clinical experience, but it is favorable. We prefer recent graduates, however, we will consider three years from date of graduation with clinical experience. In all, we review the application in its entirety.

As all applications are accepted through ERAS, we do not accept paper applications. We do not offer pre-matches.
