"Great faculty and administration staff; very supportive, unopposed residency training is invaluable, feel as if I could hang up 'Doc in House' and handle whatever walks in the door."
Each year we accept applications beginning with the opening of ERAS on September 15. The deadline for applications is December 31. However, it is possible that our interview schedule could become full before that time, and we would be unable to schedule further interviews. We generally conduct interviews from September through January.
When post-match positions are available, all applicants must submit a complete application via ERAS immediately following the match. We will utilize the NRMP's SOAP process. We will not accept faxed applications or incomplete applications.
