Frequently Asked Questions

What is your minimum USMLE Step 1 and USMLE Step 2 CK score requirements?

We recognize that standardized testing has limitations and provides only a snapshot of knowledge that is not always representative of an applicant’s abilities or potential. As such, each application is reviewed as a whole and there are no firm thresholds that determine eligibility for interviews.

Do you have a Time since graduation cut off?

Yes, two years

Do you entertain residency applications outside of the match?

No. We only review application materials in ERAS and select residents exclusively using the match process. No application materials emailed to the program will be reviewed.

Do you accept J1 visa?

Yes

Do you have a program application deadline?

We will review applications throughout the interview period of Oct.–Jan. while we have available interview slots. We do recommend that you submit your applications early to ensure interview slots are available.

When do you interview residency applicants?

We will be conducting virtual interviews October through January for the 2020-21 season to protect the health of our interviewees, faculty, residents, and patients and limit further spread of the coronavirus. We are disappointed to not be able to meet our applicants in person and demonstrate the strengths of our program, organization, and location first-hand. However, we are confident that our creative process to showcase our residency and its culture virtually will provide you with great insight into the program.

What can I expect on the interview day?

Our virtual interview will include delivery of in-depth information about the program, individual interviews with program leadership and faculty, and social time with residents.

Do you welcome DO applicants?

Yes! We appreciate the unique perspective that DO training brings and find it aligns well with our residency’s focus on Lifestyle Medicine. We are working to incorporate OMM into our curriculum; our first simulation training session including OMM will occur in Spring 2021.
