Application Information  

We welcome applicants from a diverse set of backgrounds and life experiences. We are committed to building an inclusive community of trainees and faculty who foster diversity within our residency program.

ERAS is the Electronic Residency Application Service from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).  The Department of Internal Medicine requires applications be submitted through the ERAS. University of Nebraska Medical Center participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). 

For the 2021-22 recruitment season, our residency program will participate in the supplemental application program offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program.  It is completely optional; applicants electing to not complete the supplemental application will not be adversely affected.  Applicants choosing to submit a supplemental application also will be required to complete the MyERAS application.  The supplemental application is supported by a platform that is separate from the MyERAS application; for more information regarding the supplemental application see the following link: AAMC website.

Categorical: 1376140C0, 26 resident complement
