Our residency program will offer 80 interviews this year. All interviews will be virtual. We have always limited the number of invitations to the total number of interview slots. We will offer waitlist slots for each of our interview dates in the event of cancellations.

Residents accepted into the program will need to successfully complete both parts of USMLE Step 2 to start the program. We strongly encourage applicants to take both parts of USMLE Step 2 before March 1 to permit reporting of scores before the start of orientation in late June. Reporting of USMLE scores can take  approximately 8 weeks. Consult the USMLE Policy for full details.
