How to Apply

Surgery residents at an Indians Game

It is important that entering residents fit well in our department and program, develop long-lasting career relationships with our faculty and have a satisfying training experience that positions them to be successful in their career. Our program accepts applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

All applicants must submit these documents:

  • Completed ERAS application
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Three current letters of reference
  • Dean's letter and transcripts
  • United States Medical Licensing Exam scores, passed on first attempt

In addition, we require all applicants to answer an online survey after we have received your completed ERAS application. We recommend applicants complete the survey in one sitting in a quiet environment, using a personal computer. The survey may take up to 30 minutes and must be completed by a specific date and time (to be provided) for your application to be considered.
