About Rush University

The program accepts five residents per year.

The residency program participates exclusively in the electronic residency application system (ERAS). All applicants must use this method for applying to our residency program.

We require 3 Letters of Recommendation (maximum of 4) to be submitted with your ERAS application. Apart from the requirements listed in ERAS, no supplemental information/application is required.

Completed applications are due by November 1, 2014.

Approximately 60 applicants are interviewed. The interview process involves a full day with ample opportunity to interact with residents and attending physicians. The final selection and ranking is conducted by the Residency Selection Committee. Residents are selected from medical schools throughout the country, lending diversity to the program. Residents are selected on the basis of their academic accomplishments and personal character.

Interviews will be held on January 6 and 7, 2015.

Please see Medical Student Information for details on how to apply for a fourth year elective rotation.
