How to Apply

The Medical University of South Carolina participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). This process selects all PGY-1 residents in the institution. The general surgery residency program has 6 categorical positions and 14 preliminary positions at the PGY-1 level. 

For the 2019-2020 interview season (PGY-1 beginning July 2020), applications will be accepted ONLY through ERAS. 

In addition to the ERAS application we require a transcript of your grades, Dean's letter, three letters of recommendation and USMLE scores. The deadline for receipt of applications is October 1. We will not review any applications received after this date.  The residency committee reviews each applicant's preliminary file and makes a decision whether or not the applicant will be interviewed, placed on a waiting list or not be interviewed. After the preliminary evaluation you will receive an email from us indicating your status. The department uses the Interview Broker scheduling system and correspondence will be sent through this program.  If you are selected for an interview your email will ask that you schedule your interview using Interview Broker (the link will be provided to you in the email).  You may also call the Department of Surgery at any time if you have questions. You should contact Sara Frampton, the Residency Program Coordinator at (843) 792-3072 or via email at  We are offering the following dates for interviews:
