Application Process

We accept applications only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). A complete application includes:
  • NRMP application form

  • United States Medical Licensing Exam Scores
    (Step 1 required, Step 2 optional)
  • Medical School Transcripts
  • Three letters of recommendation (two letters from Emergency Medicine faculty preferred)
  • Personal Statement

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 Wednesdays and Fridays between October 2016 and January 2017.


Night Before

There will be an optional dinner social event at one of the outstanding Charlottesville restaurants/bars the night before each interview session.  The dinners generally start at 7pm and are always casual attire. They are typically either on the historic downtown pedestrian mall or on ‘The Corner’ which is across from the hospital grounds.

As your specific interview day approaches, one of the resident recruitment chairs will send you more detailed information.  If you have any questions prior to then, please don’t hesitate to contact either Chris, Camerone, or Sarah.
