Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) beginning September 15 and must be received by early October.  Interviews are granted on the basis of STEP I exam scores, letters of recommendation, and scholastic performance.  Prior research experience and publications greatly enhance the strength of the application.

Selected candidates will interview with University full-time and volunteer faculty.  They will also meet with current residents.  Interviews will be conducted for invitees only.  Raw scores will be reviewed, along with appropriate integration of factual and interview information, yielding a resident candidate rank list to be submitted to the American Urological Association (AUA) Resident Match Program, AUA ID#00923346.  Two residents will be selected each year via this system.  Selection of residents is made without regard to race, gender, religion, or creed.  Matched residents must also participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) to cement a reserved General Surgery residency slot.

Program Director: Chad LaGrange, M.D.
