Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
In order to be a part of this competitive and fulfilling program you will need to do the following:
Apply via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS)
Complete the application process by requesting a dean's letter, a transcript and three current letters of recommendation
Pass the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Steps one & two within three attempts
It is important to note:
- No applications will be accepted after December 1st
- The institution sponsors only J-1 Visas
- No US clinical experience required
You are encouraged to start the application process as soon as possible. Please note that no final decision on selection can be made on an incomplete application. Submitting an acceptable application is the responsibility of the prospective resident. We do not set a specific minimum score requirement for the USMLE because the Selection Committee views the application as a whole, but your score must be competitive. If your application is chosen by the Selection Committee you will be invited for interviews. The first interviews are scheduled in November and December. Your interviews will be scheduled on Fridays when the faculty is readily available.
