  • United States Medical Licensing Exam Scores – no minimum required score
    (Step 1 required, Step 2 optional)
  • Medical School Transcripts
  • Minimum of one SLOE

We do accept J-1 Visas.

Once a complete application has been received through ERAS, a selection committee will review it. Interviews are by invitation only and will be scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays between November and December 2020.

Interview Season 2020-2021

Due to the current pandemic, all interview dates for 2020-2021 will be virtual, even for local applicants. Interviews will be done through Zoom. We will host a virtual meet and greet/social happy hour on the Wednesday evening of each interview week.  ERAS opens to programs on 10/21/2020 and we plan to start offering spots on 11/3/2020.  We review applications on a rolling basis and will continue to offer interviews throughout the fall/winter.


We look forward to meeting you on your interview day!
