Thank you for your interest in a PGY1 residency position in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of North Carolina. I hope that in exploring our website you have had many of your questions answered. Below you will find answers to some FAQs.
Our program participates in ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Your Dean's office will inform you of the necessary steps and provide you with the hardware/software to prepare this application.
The AAMC website for ERAS.
We do not require an additional written application. Three letters of recommendation are required in addition to the Dean's letter. One of these letters should be from the OB-GYN Chairman/or designee from your medical school. ERAS will accept up to four letters of recommendation.
Each year, our Department receives approximately 700 applications for which we offer about 80 interviews for the seven PGY 1 positions in our program. Once we have received your completed ERAS file, your application will receive careful consideration and should we invite you for an interview.
The deadline for ERAS is November 1.
For additional information, you can contact the Residency Coordinator, Kimberly Marks.
