If you are selected, you will be contacted via email with an invitation to interview. Our virtual interview dates are December 9, 2022 and January 20, 2023. All interviews are virtual.
The deadline to submit your application is October 31, 2022

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. Our interview process will take place during the month of October. Our interviews will be scheduled on Fridays when the faculty is readily available.
