How do I submit my application?

We accept applications through AAMC’s Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), http://www.aamc.org/eras (Please note there are two program tracks available; 5-year training program and 7-year research track training program).

What constitutes a complete application?

An ERAS application form, personal statement, current Curriculum vitae, medical school transcript, USMLE (or COMLEX) transcript, 3 letters of recommendation (including one from your department chairman), Medical School Performance Evaluation, ECFMG certificate (if applicable-applicants must be ECFMG-certified no later than the application deadline of November 1).  

What about sub-internships?

Sub-Internships are coordinated through Student Affairs at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Medicine.   Applications are accepted through VSAS only and approved once you meet all of the medical school’s requirements.  Please visit the following link to review all requirements:   http://www.med.unc.edu/ome/studentaffairs/visiting-student-program

Selection process

Application deadline is November 1st, and all applications are reviewed by our faculty review committee.  Minimum USMLE Step 1 score is 235, though all applications are reviewed and considered as a whole.  Invitations are sent via email through ERAS, by the end of November.  Once the invitation is accepted more detailed information is given regarding how to plan for the interview day. 

Wait lists

Once initial invitations have been issued, a wait list is created and those applicants will be notified via email of their waitlist status.  We do not divulge anyone’s particular spot on the wait list.  If an applicant accepts an invitation and subsequently cancels, invitations will be issued to those on the wait list.
