We accept applications only through the Association of American Medical Colleges ERAS system. We look for candidates with excellent academic performance and a strong interest in pursuing Obstetrics and Gynecology as the next step in their career.

Interview and Ranking Process

Applicants meeting the above-mentioned qualifications will then be invited to an interview and will be interviewed by residents and faculty including the Program Director and Chairman. We comply with the APGO-CREOG recommended timeline.

After the completion of all interviews for the upcoming year, the applicants will be placed in rank order by a committee for the National Resident Matching Program. This committee ranks applicants on the basis of all available information, and this ranking is submitted to the National Resident Matching Program. All of our first-year positions are available through the match.
