How to Apply

Applications should be submitted via the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS), and all applicants must be registered with the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). The deadline to submit applications is November 1, but applications prior to October 15 are preferred. A supplemental paragraph stating “Why you want to complete your Residency at Orlando Health” is required should be submitted with your ERAS application. The paragraph should be between 100-150 words and can be included at the end of your personal statement that is part of your ERAS application.

Interviews: All interviews are arranged through the ERAS scheduling system after initial selections have been made from applications submitted through ERAS. Applicants who are invited to interview will be contacted via the ERAS scheduling system and prompted to schedule an interview date. Interviews take place from December through January. For further information, call us at (321) 841-4499. For information on ERAS, please access their website.
