How to Apply

The Division of Vascular Surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina is a participating member of the National Resident Matching Program and accepts applications only through the ERAS system. All applicants are required to complete the universal application form available through the Electronic Residency Application Services of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), including three letters of reference, personal statement, a dean's letter, and medical school transcripts. All applicants must have successfully passed USMLE Step 1, and preferably Step 2 at least 6 weeks prior to the day of the match. 

MUSC Vascular Surgery integrated residency program accepts two categorical residents per year.  Residents are selected on a fair and equal basis without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin or sexual orientation. Selection of applicants to be interviewed is based upon qualities such as publications, test scores, letters of recommendation, and personal statement. We value a demonstrated commitment to Vascular Surgery. Interested medical students can optimize their chances of getting into the program by doing more than just their required clinical rotations by either spending time doing Vascular-related research or more focused time in Vascular Surgery rotations. 

While not required, applicants to the MUSC Vascular Surgery integrated residency program who wish to get a more in depth experience in our program and spend time in a clinical rotation at the Medical University of South Carolina may arrange an elective rotation through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) program and the MUSC College of Medicine Dean’s Office. Rotations will not necessarily confer a competitive advantage in the selection process, however.
