About Rush University

Welcome to Rush University Medical Center for the coming academic year!

The Office of Graduate Medical Education is here to assist you in making your transition to Rush easier. By following these easy guidelines and deadlines, you will be ready to hit the ground running on your first day. We will cover many items at orientation, but some things have been placed on the Web to be completed prior to the orientation to make the process faster and easier.

Please review the following items very thoroughly.

Please see the links below and at the left for detailed instructions. It is crucial for you to read this information very carefully and to respond to these items before you arrive on campus. We have placed the required forms online for your convenience.

Licensing materials require your attention now and should be immediately returned to GME.

Do you have your NPI number yet? You have to wait until you have your medical license. Rush will also need it!

If not, please go to the National Plan And Provider Enumeration System's Web site and apply for this free number which you will need for the rest of your professional life. On the application, please note you are not the sole proprietor.

By May 30th at the latest, you must have made your selection of health benefits and mailed in the benefits checklist with all the applications and required documentation. Click here to Sign Up for Benefits.

Please return all forms to the GME office before the deadlines listed.
