How to Apply

We received our accreditation from the ACGME in January 2017 and have enrolled two classes. Applicants for the 2018-2019 Match cycle must apply through ERAS. At least 1 SLOE should be included in the initial application. USMLE or COMLEX Step 1 scores are required for the initial application and Step 2 scores must be uploaded prior to the rank list submission deadline. Interviews will be held from October through January.  Rush University Medical Center will consider applicants requiring visas as well as those who have previous GME experience.

*Interviews on November 14 and December 12 will have additional events scheduled to discuss issues and answer questions for applicants from populations under represented in medicine (URM).  If you are interested in learning more about the URM experience at Rush and its larger community, please allow additional time to attend these events after your interview. The events should conclude by 5:30pm on these days.


Candidates selected to interview will be notified via InterviewBroker on a rolling basis starting in mid-October. Please plan on arriving to Chicago early the day before your interview to allow enough time to participate in the evening social event hosted by our EM residents, usually scheduled from 7am-9pm. Interviews will conclude by mid-afternoon on the day of your interview. 

Thank you for your interest in Rush Emergency Medicine. We look forward to welcoming you to Chicago!
