How to Apply

Those candidates applying for the PGY-I positions must be a graduate of an American Medical Association-approved medical school (within 5 years of graduation) and have passed the USMLE Examinations Parts I & II (CK and CS) prior to starting residency training. We do not have a minimum score requirement; however, we do use a three-digit score of 220 as a baseline for evaluation of the scores.

We do not interview any candidate who fails either USMLE Step I or Step II. All candidates for the PGY-I year must participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). All applications must be processed through the Electronic Resident Application Service (ERAS).

We require a minimum of three letters of recommendation, one of which must come from a faculty member in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. A chairman's letter is strongly recommended.

All foreign medical graduates must apply through the ECFMG who will then process all foreign applications through ERAS. Tufts Medical Center sponsors only the J-1 Visa for both tracks.


A personal interview is an essential part of the application procedure. All interviews are by invitation only after all applications have been reviewed.

CATEGORICAL TRACK: Invitations for interviews will be sent out in mid-October. Interviews will be taking place November 15, and December 1, 11 and 19.  Interviews are conducted at Tufts Medical Center.


Invitations for interviews will be sent out between December 2017 and January 2018. We will only have ONE date for interviews (in late January or early February). Interviews are conducted at MetroWest Medical Center.

Please note our program will be using the program 3rd Friday for correspondence and interview scheduling.
