Thank you for your interest in our General Surgery Residency Program. The Program participates in the National Residency Matching Program [NRMP]. All applications for a surgery residency position need to be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application System [ERAS]. We are not able to accept applicants or to review or evaluate applications outside of this process. In any given year, the program participates in the match with up to 7 categorical positions and up to 5 preliminary resident positions.
The ideal candidate for our program:
The program currently will accept applications form qualified Osteopathic and International Medical Graduates, all candidates should have completed the USMLE step examinations. International medical graduates must have completed medical school without gaps and within the last three years, and ideally already have prior US experience.
On the day of the interview, candidates will be given an overview of the program structure and goals, and and will meet with the Program Coordinator, the Program Director, Core Faculty and some of our current residents. Our interviews remain virtual.
