General Surgery Residency Application Process

Appointments to the categorical first year surgical residency training program are made through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Applications will be accepted from fourth year medical students wishing to complete our five year general surgery residency program. Our GME office will only sponsor J-1 visas for qualified applicants. We are participating in ERAS 2017 and ERAS application materials will be distributed from your dean's office in mid June 2016. Your COMPLETE ERAS application must be submitted by the November 1, 2016 deadline. Due to the number of applications we receive, WE WILL NOT DOWNLOAD MATERIALS FROM ERAS after November 1, 2016 at 5:00pm.

Please note the following Application Requirements:

  • A completed AAMC-NRMP application for residency
  • An official copy of your National Board Scores or USMLE Scores (235 or above)
  • An offical medical school transcript
  • Dean's Letter
  • A minimum of three (3) letters of professional references written within the last year from surgical faculty members familiar with your performance are required.

Our interviews will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2016 and Saturday, December 10, 2016 by invitation only. There will be no exceptions to these interview dates and any invited applicants must attend an interview date to be considered for a position in our residency program. In addition, the night before the interviews we will have an informal get-together with our current residents. Attendance at this event is not required, but it is a great opportunity to talk to the residents and learn more about our program.

Preliminary Interviews will be held on in early January or February, 2016. Please contact us through ERAS only.
