The Transitional Year Residency Program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Applications to the residency program must be made through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). All applications and supporting documentation must be submitted electronically. Paper applications will not be accepted. For more information on how to apply via ERAS, contact your medical school Dean of Student Affairs, the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), or visit the ERAS website for application procedures.
Six new positions for graduate training are available in June of each year. Applications are accepted and reviewed from mid-September through the end of October each year. Initial review of individual applications begins prior to receipt of all required application documents. However, an applicant cannot be considered for an interview unless a complete application has been received by the November 1st deadline. A complete application consists of the following:
After receiving applications through ERAS, the Review Committee scrutinizes each application and selects individuals that qualify for interviews. Only those applicants that are selected to interview are sent invitations via email.
Interviews are conducted from early November through early February of each year. Interview dates are available to invited candidates on a first come, first served basis. However, a waiting list is maintained for all dates and sometimes interview slots become available on dates that have previously filled. Interview days consist of individual interviews with faculty members, attendance at department educational conferences and a resident-guided tour of our facilities.
Presence Saint Joseph Hospital adheres to a policy of equal opportunity in the appointment process. Furthermore, all applicants must successfully complete the USMLE Parts I And II in the medical sciences and be legally eligible for employment.
