Ob-Gyn Admissions

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology actively participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Residents are selected for the postgraduate year-one level through the National Resident Matching Program. Applicants are required to interview.

Once your application is completed through ERAS, it will be reviewed by our residency program director, associate program director and residency program coordinator.

Admissions Standards

  • Highest priority is given to graduates of LCME and AACOM-accredited medical schools.
  • To be eligible for selection, applicants must apply via Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) by Dec. 31 and must be enrolled in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).
  • All applicants must have at least two letters of recommendation provided by members of the Ob-Gyn Faculty at your medical school (including the chairperson).
  • All applicants must be within three years of graduation from medical school.
  • The selection process stringently evaluates performance on the USMLE Steps 1 and 2 and/or COMLEX examinations, grades in preclinical or clinical courses, letters of recommendation, communication skills and personal qualities as well as the MSRP.
  • We do not have a minimum score requirement for the USMLE Step 1 or Step 2, but strongly favor applicants with scores of 210 or greater.
  • The Department of Ob-Gyn does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, age, religion, color, national origin, disability, veteran status or sexual orientation.

After your application has been carefully reviewed, you will be notified of your application status. Each year we receive a large volume of applications therefore not every applicant can be considered for an interview. However, applications are held on file in case of cancellations.
