How to Apply

All applications are accepted through ERAS at We do not accept paper applications. We require three Letters Of Recommendation. Dean's letter is reviewed and  the medical school transcript, USMLE scores, personal statements are required.

At a minimum, the USMLE exams are to be passed on the first attempt. We do not divulge the "minimum scores" that we expect from our applicants.

For our FMGs applicants, we sponsor J1 visas and H1B visas. If you are planning to get an H1B, you must agree to go for the premium expedited process. FMGs are expected to have already taken step 2 CK and CS and supply the scores (and should be working on their step 3 exams, if they haven't already sat for them).

We do not provide any observerships or externships, due to the fact that we have many medical students rotating through our department at any given time, and cannot accommodate the request.

Our fully accredited program has 24 categorical residents, and we fill six PGY-1 categorical positions each year.

Thank you for your interest in our program.
