Our program participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applications are only accepted through ERAS only. Our program number is 2201611096. We also participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

We accept three candidates annually. Review of the prospective candidates application is performed and those candidates meeting our criteria are invited for an interview. Those candidates not being invited for an interview will be notified of their application being declined or in some instances that they will be placed on a waiting list for an open interview slot. An interview is required for full consideration of your application. The deadline for application submission with supporting documents is December 31, but we encourage applicants to complete their applications in the early fall. Applicants will be notified by email if they are selected for an interview.

Interviews are conducted from October through January. Your interview will consist of a dinner on Wednesday followed by a Thursday interview. The interview day will involve meeting with the Chairman, Program Director, selected Attending staff, as well as the Residents. A tour of our facilities will also be conducted.
