How to Apply

We fill our positions through the National Residency Match Program and personal interviews are required.

We screen candidates' applications before inviting the individuals to schedule an interview. We participate in the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) so the screening process will be based on information available through that system. After screening, we will offer face-to-face interviews to candidates whose abilities, personal interests and needs best match this program's philosophy and curriculum. Interviews begin in early October, and are conducted through the end of January each year. Visits earlier than October can be arranged by contacting the Program Coordinator, Jessica Smith, at (919) 966-3456. Spouses and significant others are welcome and are encouraged to come with the applicant at the time of the interview.

Complete applications consist of all of the following:

  • A Dean's letter of recommendation
  • A transcript of medical school course work
  • Completed application forms
  • Three letters of recommendation from clinical faculty
  • An interview
