Application Process

Information about Trainee stipend, benefits and a sample contract can be found here.

The UVA Medical Center is a participating member of the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and all applicants for first-year positions must register with these programs. Most programs require a completed ERAS application form, Medical Student Performance Evaluation (formerly Dean’s Letter)and transcript, and reference letters for application. .

Requests for additional information about all programs should be addressed to the Program Director to which application is desired. All of our GME training programs maintain their own websites. General information on UVA Medical Center training programs can be found here: AMA Freida

Contracts are generated by the Institution following either a formal match or other formal offer of employment by a non-Match participating program.  Contracts are generated annually for each subsequent year of employment based on successful completion of all program and institutional requirements.  The GME Office manages the contracting, credentialing and onboarding process.  Details about this process, including licensing and all HR requirements will be communicated electronically with all matched applicants by the GME Office.

After accepting employment, new hires are required to complete an I-9 form and present documentation of their identity and eligibility to work in the United States. Effective June 1, 2011, agencies in the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Executive Branch will use the E-Verify system to confirm identity and work authorization.
