As the first residency program at FAU and its partner hospitals, we are visionaries who possess a pioneering spirit.  Our residents, faculty and partners are engaged in innovative initiatives and the transformation of our three community hospitals into academic medical centers.  We value academic achievement and scholarly inquiry, are dedicated to patient safety and quality improvement, embody humanistic qualities in our interactions with all stakeholders and embrace inter-professional collaboration.  We are supportive and inclusive with each other and our community.   We strive to identify candidates who have the desire to not only be self-directed in their personal development as a physician, but to contribute to the continuing development of the clinical learning environment of our hospitals, their fellow residents and the program as a whole. 

Applicants are encouraged to view our partner hospital websites to learn more about our community and where we work. 

The Admissions Committee reviews applications with the goal of identifying applicants who are a good fit for our program based on the information provided in their application materials.  In general, competitive applicants will submit a USMLE score that is compatible with our average class Step 1 score of 235, hold US Clinical experience and submit application materials that are in alignment with our program, patient population and community.   Competitive IMGs will also be US Citizens, Permanent Residents or be eligible for J-1 Visa sponsorship.
