How to Apply

Appointments to the residency program of the UC College of Medicine are made in accordance with the rules of the National Residency Matching Program. Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

All applicants are required to apply through ERAS.

Due the current COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s interviews will be conducted virtually. We held a Virtual Showcase on Wednesday, September 9, 2020. Program Director, Dr. Jonathan Forbes and Department Chair, Dr. Joseph Cheng shared information about the department. Our residents also conducted a virtual meet and greet on September 11, 2020.

Register for both events by e-mailing our program manager, Penny Schwab at

Virtual interview invitations will be sent out by mid-November.
