Residency Application Information

The selection of residents is based on academic records, letters of recommendation, and interviews with the program. MUSC is an equal opportunity employer and all applicants are given equal consideration. 

Our residency program participates in the American Urological Association (AUA) Urology Match Program. The AUA partners with the Society of Academic Urologists (SAU) to oversee the Urology Residency Match. Learn more in the updated policies from the SAU for the 2021 Match.

Application Process

The MUSC Department of Urology accepts applications only through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application System).

Applications will be accepted through ERAS up to the closing date of the AUA Match. However, because of the large number of applications received, it is in the applicant's best interest to have applications, Dean's Letter, and all appropriate support materials to the Medical University of South Carolina's Department of Urology as early as possible. Interviews are typically scheduled on two dates in mid November. The timeline for the 2021 Match will be updated based on the adjusted Match Schedule. All programs will be offering interview positions on November 6, 2020.

Consideration will be given to couples who want to do residencies at MUSC or in Charleston in either the same or different programs. Due to Urology being a separate Match from the NRMP, applicants are encouraged to notify the Program Coordinator and Program Director if a couples match situation exists.

Application Procedure for Foreign Medical Graduates

Foreign medical graduates are considered to be any graduate of a foreign medical school, including an American citizen whose medical degree is from a college outside the United States or Canada. These graduates are required to do postgraduate medical training in a United States training program before they can become either board certified or licensed physicians in this country.

Foreign medical graduates must provide other materials in support of their applications in addition to the materials for graduates of American or Canadian medical schools, including a description of current citizenship status on the ERAS application.

The following is a list of requirements that must be met and materials that must be received before each applicant's file is considered complete:

  • Completed application through ERAS
  • Personal Statement
  • Dean's Letter
  • Medical School Transcripts
  • USMLE Transcript, Step I passing score required, Step II scores if available will be considered
  • Three letters of recommendation (Urologists preferred, but any specialty accepted)
