  • Applicants of US medical schools indicating a geographic signal
  • Applicants of non-US medical schools indicating a geographic signal

Applications that are delayed or do not contain a program or geographic signal will not be considered.  

At this time, our program is unable to sponsor visas.

Interview & Selection Process

Interviews will be virtual. For students who wish to visit the area, we are happy to facilitate tours of our facilities and time with our current residents during your time in Charleston.  

Our interviewing process is designed to make the selection process a fair and enriching experience. Interviewers are provided the information stated in the application and impressions are recorded by each interviewer. In January, these reports and the required information are studied carefully by the Resident Selection Committee and used to rank applicants for the National Resident Matching Program.

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) developed ERAS®-the Electronic Residency Application Service, to transmit residency applications, letters of recommendation, Dean's Letters, transcripts, and other supporting credentials from applicants and medical schools to residency program directors using the Internet.
