All residency applicants must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Services (ERAS). The deadline for receipt of applications is January of each year. Only applications submitted ERAS will be accepted. Our program conducts interviews from October to January, on Mondays and Fridays.
At this time, all interviews will be conducted in a virtual setting, using Zoom video conferencing, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and occasionally on Fridays, beginning in November and concluding in January, secondary to the COVID-19 restrictions.
Applicants selected for interviews with our program will receive notification through ERAS and may be contacted for a virtual “sit-down” dinner to meet some of our residents, during the week prior to your interview date.
