Application and Interview Information

G1 appointments are available through the National Resident Matching Program. Our program code in the NRMP is 1330140C. The appointment begins with a five to six day mandatory orientation prior to the start of clinical training on June 24th. G1 clinical training ends on June 23 of the following year, followed by an additional week of paid time off to complete the G1 appointment on June 30 of that year. Our program participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and all applications must come through ERAS. We participate in the ERAS supplemental application as well.

We accept IMG applications through ERAS and sponsor visas when necessary. IMG applicants should have clinical experience in the United States and some letters of recommendation from these U.S.-based experiences.

A complete application includes:

  1. The ERAS Common Application including USMLE score reports
  2. Dean's/Department/Structured-Evaluation Letter
  3. Transcript
  4. Three letters of recommendation (two of which should come from Internal Medicine areas)


The Virtual Interview Process:

After initial application review of ERAS-submitted applications, selected applicants will be invited for a virtual interview day on a rolling basis. Once we have finished inviting applicants for interviews, we will notify those who will not be invited. The web-based/virtual interview day will be 5-6 hours in length and consist of a formal introduction and overview of the program by the program director, a tour through hospital and clinics with one of our chief residents, two small group discussions with residents, a lunch break, and the day will conclude with two 30 minute interviews with program leadership. We will remain 100% virtual interviews for the 2022-23 season per recommendations of the AAMC and our specialty society.

Virtual Open Houses:

We feel that the significant time spent on your interview day allows the majority of your questions to get answered, and also provides a significant amount of time to talk to residents in a small group virtual venue. We do not have open houses prior to interview season for that reason. However, we do offer a few informal virtual gatherings with residents in the evenings during the interview season where you can ask questions that were not answered on your interview day, or may come up later in the interview season. We feel this is the most efficient use of your time during what can be a very busy time of your year. These virtual gatherings have no impact on applicant ranking, are attended only by our residents and chief residents, and program leadership are not present. These dates will be made known to you at the time of your interview invitation being sent out.
