Applicant Information

A few important details: We accept applications only through ERAS. We participate fully with the NRMP. We have no minimum requirement for USMLE scores.

Letters of Recommendation:

We require four letters of recommendation. Preferably one of these is from a department chair, however this is not mandatory. Ideally, the letters are from faculty members that you have worked with closely and know you as an individual.

Letters of Invitation:

These are sent starting in mid-September through the end of October.

Interview Days:

We have a 1½ day interview, starting around 3pm Monday afternoon and concluding around 4:30pm on Tuesday. This allows you to get an in depth look at our program and have lots of opportunities to interact with our wonderful Med-Ped residents. Our interviews begin in mid-October and conclude in mid-January.

Accommodations and Dinners:

Since residency travel can be expensive, we pay for lodging for Monday evening. There is also a complimentary dinner with our residents that evening. The dinner is at the home of the one of the Med-Peds residents and you are welcome to bring your spouse or partner.

Second Looks:

We do not require second looks, since they are expensive and time consuming for our applicants. If you are passing through or are interested in experiencing something you did not get to see, you are most welcome to come back, but please do not feel obliged to do so for our sake.

Positions and Promises:

Lastly, our decision process is by committee, with the many people you meet participating. As a result, and because of the rules of the match, no one is offered a position, or promised a "high rank". Please do not take this as an indication that we are not interested in you as an applicant, but rather that we feel this is ethical behavior.

Let me close this by saying that there is nothing so rewarding as working with the Med-Peds residents, and I hope you may be among them soon!
