Residency Application Process

During the fourth year, there are multiple class sessions to discuss the application process. Also, there's a great deal of information posted here on our website to guide you. Remember that there are several types of application and match services. The systems you will use are determined by the specialty to which you are applying. You might have to use more than one type of application or match system.

Road Map to Residency

The Association of American Medical Colleges has produced a new, comprehensive guide for applicants to U.S. residency programs. "Roadmap to Residency: From Application to the Match and Beyond" describes the policies, procedures and practices associated with residency application and is useful for both U.S. and non-U.S. medical school students and graduates.
