2017 ASA Meeting

We offer two program tracks for the NRMP Match. We recommend that applicants check both tracks in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

Applicants seeking a PGY-1 Categorical position for the 2017-2018 year or a CA-1 Advanced position for the 2018-2019 year will need to apply through ERAS. All 21 positions are filled through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

Selection Process

When selecting an applicant for an interview, the Resident Recruitment Committee will evaluate the following application components:

Applicants are selected to interview based on their USMLE Step 1 score only, and they are not required to take Step 2 or Clinical Skills Assessment before their interview. However, applicants are required to pass Steps 1 and 2 before starting their residency training. Osteopathic applicants must also take the USMLE.

Intvited Applicants

The program will review applications after October 1, so interview inviations will be sent after that date. Selected applicants will receive an email invitation from Thalamus. Interviews occur on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from October through January.
