How to Apply

Applying for OB/GYN Residency

Our residency program consists of 24 residents, six per year. We will be filling six new positions for the 2020-21 academic year. All applicants need to apply using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).  

We accept applications through ERAS only.  Emailed or faxed applications will not be reviewed.

The deadline for submission of your ERAS application to be considered for the 2020 Match is October 1, 2019.  Early applications are encouraged.

We accept both American and foreign medical graduates. There are no minimum scores and clinical experience is not required.  We look at the entire application as a whole and invite the best 100 candidates out of the 600 or so applications that we receive.  While scores are important, so are your transcripts, recommendation letters, personal statement, etc.  We will sponsor J-1 visas, but not H-1 visas.

Your application will be considered complete when all ERAS materials are received.  This includes at least three letters of recommendation, personal statement, medical school transcripts, ECFMG certificate (if applicable), and documentation of national USMLE or COMLEX scores.  

This year's interviews will be held on October 11, November 15, November 22, and December 6, 2019 (all Friday mornings).  You will be notified by email whether you have been selected for an interview.  We do not send all the invites out on the same day  - we want to make sure there is still availability on each date.  We will wait 72 hours for applicants to respond to an invite before inviting someone else.
