How to Apply

We offer two program tracks for the NRMP Match. We recommend that applicants check both tracks in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). All 21 positions are filled through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

  • Categorical track (NRMP #2247040C0): 13 positions available
    A four-year program that includes a preliminary medicine year (11 months of medicine and one month of anesthesiology)
  • Advanced track (NRMP #2247040A0): Eight positions available
    A three-year specialty program where the applicant would need to secure a first-year position at another residency program

On rare occasions, the department has an open CA-1 "R" position available through the Match. Please email Sean Jones to check if a position is available.

 Selection Process

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

  • Strong letters of recommendation (at least three) from various specialties
  • Third-year Core Clerkship grades
  • The dean's letter (Medical Student Performance Evaluation)
  • Personal statement
  • Other extracurricular activities
  • USMLE scores

Applicants are selected to interview on a holistic review of their application.  They are not required to take Step 2 or the Clinical Skills assessment before their interview. However, applicants are required to pass Steps 1 and 2 before starting their residency training.

 Interview Day

The program will review applications when the Dean's letter is released, so interview invitations will be sent after that date. Selected applicants will receive an email invitation from Thalamus. Interviews occur on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from November through mid-January.

Due to the COVID pandemic all of the interviews for the class of AY20-21 will occur virtually. The interview day will include breakout sessions with current residents and follow-ups to answer additional questions as needed.

The morning of the interview day, the PD will speak to the applicants virtually as a group.  Then individual interviews as well as group presentations by the Education Chair and breakout sessions. 

Out of concern for the safety of our patients, staff, and trainees we are unable to offer any on-campus tours or department visitations throughout the application process  WE refer you to the resident life web page and offer you the opportunity to follow our residents on Instagram @nuanesthesia.
