Residency Application Process

UNMC Department of Anesthesiology
Residency Application Process

The University Of Nebraska Department Of Anesthesiology accepts applications through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). We participate in the National Resident Matching Program and abide by all match policies. Applicants must register with both NRMP and ERAS to participate in the services of each.

Our application and supporting documentation deadline for ERAS applications is December 1st. Early consideration and interview invitations will be offered to those applicants meeting our selection criteria with applications completed prior to this date. There is no guarantee interview opportunities will be available later in the process.

In the event the residency has an open or off-cycle position available, applications following the same format as ERAS will be accepted for review through the Department’s Residency Coordinators’ office. Please check for availability of positions before sending any materials to the department.

To be considered for an interview, the following guidelines have been established:

Required:

  • First attempt passing score on all USMLE (or equivalent) Knowledge Examinations
  • First attempt passing score on USMLE Clinical Skills Examination
  • Licensable in the state of Nebraska
  • ECFMG certification for all International Medical Graduates (IMGs)
  • U.S. clinical experience in acute patient care within the past two years, regardless of year of graduation (Observerships do not meet this requirement.)

If the above criteria are met, a complete ERAS application is required, including:

  • Curriculum Vitae (CV)
