Residency Program » Information for Applicants: Application Information

ERAS is the Electronic Residency Application Service from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The Department of Internal Medicine requires applications be submitted through the ERAS. For additional information about ERAS, students and graduates of U.S. medical schools should contact the student affairs office at their medical schools.

Students and graduates of foreign medical schools should contact the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). General information about ERAS is available through the Internet at www.aamc.org/students/medstudents/eras/.

Please have your application and supporting documents submitted by November 30, 2012. After your application and documents have been received, the Department Review Committee will screen them and, if indicated, you will be notified about arrangements for an interview. Applicants interested in a specialty program, but who are applying for a preliminary residency position in internal medicine, must apply to the internal medicine program as well as to the program of their specialty interest.

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Those applying for first-year positions should obtain information on the Match from their deans or from:
