We only accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). It is your responsibility to complete all of the steps outlined on the ERAS website at www.aamc.orgPlease do not send Letters of Recommendation, C.V.’s or applications through any other contact.


You will be notified via e-mail if you are offered an interview after your entire application has been reviewed. We encourage you to schedule your interview as soon as you receive this notification.

Interviews with faculty are scheduled Tuesday and Thursday mornings during the months of November and December. Dinner hosted by residents on the evening prior to the formal interview is a required part of the interview process. This allows you ample time to interact with some of our residents in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. 

We limit the number of interviews per day to allow adequate time for you to explore the program and meet our Family Medicine Residency Team. If you have any questions, please contact us .
