How To Apply

All applications must be submitted through the ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Program). If you need help with instructions on how to access a student workstation or use the ERAS system, you may contact your medical school Dean's Office. Foreign medical graduates should contact the ECFMG. All interviews will take place virtually this year. 

Please note that a minimum of three letters of recommendation, a curriculum vitae, a personal statement, medical school transcripts and a Dean's letter are required. We strongly recommend that at least one letter be from a physiatrist. Both U.S. and international medical school graduates must have completed USMLE or COMLEX Steps 1 & 2 and must pass on the first attempt to be considered for the rank list. There is a medical school graduation cut off of three years.

Applicants must register with the National Resident Match Program for PGY-2 positions in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Applications should be received for preliminary review by October 1, 2021. All of the above information must be received before we can review your application.

Applicants are invited for interviews by e-mail once the Admissions Committee has reviewed completed applications. A choice of dates is available. Interviews will be held in December and January.
