Potential applicants to Rush University Medical Center's Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program should note that eligibility requires a minimum of three years of medical training in the United States, of which at least two should be a residency in Internal Medicine. Candidates must be board certified or board eligible in Internal Medicine at the time of starting Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine.
Although Rush University Medical Center is a participant in the National Resident Matching Program's (NRMP) computerized match for the medical subspecialties (MSMP), we in Geriatric Medicine do not participate in the Match Program.
We are now accepting applications via ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Please visit the ERAS Web site for general information including requirements for completion of the ERAS Application, required fees, how to request a token needed to access an ERAS application and contact information for ERAS which is operated by the Association of American Medical Colleges.
A completed application must include:
- Personal statement
- Minimum of three letters of recommendation, one being from your Residency Program Director
- Recent photo
- ECFMG certification, if applicable
Only completed candidates' folders will be reviewed by the Fellowship Program Director for consideration of an interview. If an interview is granted you will be contacted by us and arrangements will be made accordingly.
Interview sessions are conducted throughout the year and each applicant will be interviewed by the Program Director, Assistant Program Director or Section Director and key faculty members. Interview sessions begin with an overview of the Fellowship program by the Program Director. There will be time for candidates to meet and talk to current Fellows in the program during a group lunch and tour of the medical center.
