Application Process

We accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). While there is no minimum USMLE score requirement, we review a large pool of applications and our selection process is very competitive. We require Step 1 scores before considering the application. Step 2 may be completed after the deadline, but successful completion of Step 1 & 2 is required prior to matriculation.

International Medical Graduates must obtain ECFMG certification before the issuance of a training license. To be eligible for training, residents must be a US citizen, permanent US resident with valid work authorization, or hold a J-1 or H-1 visa.

A completed application must include:

  • A Dean's letter of evaluation
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Medical school transcript
  • USMLE and/or COMLEX scores
  • ECFMG certificate

Resident applicants are evaluated on academic performance in medical school, letters of recommendation, and USMLE and/or COMLEX results. This interview season we will be incorporating Altus Assessments to our interview process and we highly encourage all applicants to complete. These assessments will be used to grade applicants. A formal interview is required and the final determination is based on the candidate's commitment to the specialty, level of professionalism, and overall qualifications. 

Our application and supporting documentation deadline is November 30th. We suggest that you submit all the required documents well before this date.

We typically offer a total of 20 residency positions a year, 16 of which are in the Categorical track (4-year program), which will begin with the PGY-1 transitional internship year. The other four positions will be of the R0 Resident track (3-year program), which starts in PGY-2 with clinical anesthesia (CA-1) residency training.
