    Ask your medical school to provide a copy of your Dean's letter. Your Dean's letter is required to complete your application, but we may be able to invite you for an interview before receiving your Dean's letter (October 1).

If you are applying for a preliminary position it is not required that all your letters are from Internal Medicine faculty, though these are preferred.

    If you wish to have your USMLE scores made a part of your ERAS application, request that the transcript be submitted to the ERAS Post Office.

INTERVIEW PROCEDURES

Invitations to interview with our faculty will be offered to applicants who, in our opinion, have a reasonable chance of matching into one or more of our tracks.

We will not offer more invitations than we can accommodate. Since there is a limit to the number of applicants we can accommodate on any given day, we suggest you schedule your interview soon after receiving an invitation.

Interviews are assigned on the basis of track and special interests. Interviews are intended to learn more about your special interests, accomplishments, and future goals; and to answer your questions about our program. We will not attempt to assess your medical knowledge during the interview.

We have no open positions for 2021-22.
