How to Apply

Application Process

The department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offers an ACGME accredited training program with (7) PGY residents in each year of the 4-year of clinical training. We anticipate that each of the residents who originally match our program will complete the program, however, progression from year to year is dependent upon satisfaction of the academic and professional achievement.

Application Criteria

Our department participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) for (7) PGY-1 Positions. All applications must be submitted electronically through ERAS.  Any applications submitted must be completed in full for consideration and review. A complete electronic application includes:

  • ERAS Common Application
  • Curriculum Vitae (CV) (generated through ERAS)
  • Medical School Transcript
  • Dean’s Letter
  • Personal Statement
  • Letters of recommendation (Minimum of 2 - One letter should be from an Ob/GYN Faculty Member)

Applicants must have a completed and successfully passed (on the first try) Step 1 & 2. The USMLE scores for step 1 and 2 (MK) are accepted electronically through ERAS only. Our applications submission deadline is November 1. Interviews will start after November 17, 2020.

Due to travel restrictions due to COVID-19, all interviews for 2020 will be done virtually. Once selected for an interview, we will do our best to accommodate request for interview dates. Requests will be issued on a first come first serve basis. Interviews will be offered during the months of November, December and January (no exceptions). The application process for International Medical Graduates - Foreign medical graduates are welcome to submit their application for review and consideration following the same application requirements as those for the U.S. medical graduate applicants.

In addition, prior to applying for residency, one must be ECFMG certified.  Typically, there is an optional “Social Gathering with Residents” the evening before the interviews to allow the applicants and residents interact in an informal setting. This year, due to concerns with COVID-19, this meet and greet will occur virtually.
