Application Process

Thank you for inquiry to our residency program. The Obstetrics and Gynecology Department is moving to a new residency application starting in the 2024-25 residency application cycle.

  • All interviews are virtual

  • Application submission date September 25, 2024

  • Applications available to programs October 1, 2024

  • Release of interview invitations October 29, 2024

  • Once interviews are released applicants have 48 hours to respond to invitation

  • We will not begin interviewing until after November 1, 2024

  • Final status of application will be released to applicants November 27, 2024

  • Our program accepts pre-interview communication from applicants and/or those advocating for applicants

  • Thank you notes are up to the applicant but will not impact ranking

  • Our program accepts post interview communication from applicants and/or those advocating for applicants

A completed application with the following items will be reviewed by the committee:

  • Common Application Form (CAF) 
  • USMLE and Comlex- USA Scores accepted
  • Transcripts from your medical school
  • Dean’s Letter (when available)
  • A minimum of TWO letters of recommendation provided by members of the Ob/Gyn Faculty at your medical school (i.e. Chairman, Program Director)

USMLE Step 2 and the Dean’s letter will be taken into account when this information is available. After your application has been carefully reviewed, you will be informed as to whether a personal interview will be offered. Due to high volume of applications, not every applicant will be invited. However, the Residency Selection Committee will hold quality applications on file in case of cancellations. The program considers all qualified applicants including those on a J-1 visa. Said applicant is responsible for maintaining cost and current certification with the ECFMG. Sponsorship outside the four year post graduate training will be considered on a case by case basis
