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 24. 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 the following year. Our program participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and all applications must come through ERAS.

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 US-based experiences.

A complete application includes:

  1. The ERAS Common Application including USMLE score reports
  2. For 2021-22 interview season the Supplemental ERAS 2022 Application (see below for details) completed between 9/1-9/30/2021
  3. Dean's Letter
  4. Transcript
  5. Three letters of recommendation (two of which should come from Internal Medicine areas)

After initial application review, selected applicants will be invited for a web-based/virtual interview day. 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.

A note regarding the 2022 ERAS Supplemental Application for Internal Medicine

For the 2022 ERASĀ® cycle, our program will be participating in the supplemental ERAS application offered through the AAMC's ERAS program. Applicants will be required to complete the MyERAS application, and participation in the supplemental ERAS application is strongly encouraged. The additional information will help our program staff learn more about applicants’ medical education journey, including more meaningful information about work, volunteer, and life experiences, and help us better identify applicants who fit our program environment and mission.

This supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform outside the MyERAS application and must be completed between September 1 and September 30.

See the supplemental ERAS application section of the AAMC website to find the latest information, FAQs, and resources.
