Residency programs do not discriminate with regard to gender, race, age, religion, national origin, cultural background, disability, or veteran status in accordance with the Department of Education’s Non-Discrimination Policy.

The actual selection of candidates to be interviewed and ranked is the responsibility of each residency program. The selection process is as follows:

  • The residency program director in collaboration with the Residency Program's Education Committee determines whether an applicant’s academic records and supporting materials reflect adequate qualifications for residency training.
  • If this is the case, an interview with the applicant is requested by the Residency Program Director through the Program Coordinator.
  • All applicants must appear for personal interviews to be eligible for final selection in the Residency Programs.
  • After the program director, attending faculty, and residents review the qualified applicants’ files, each Department’s Education Committee, including resident representatives, meets to rank applicants in order of preference for residency position.
  • These confidential rank order lists are submitted to the Department of Medical Education for final verification and processing by the Assistant to the Director of Medical Education. Selection is made through i.e. the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), using a standardized ERAS residency application with review of a personal statement, reference letters, a Dean’s Letter, and depending on the aforementioned qualifications, a personal interview with the residency program director and other members of the residency attending faculty and residents.
