Adult Neurology Residency Application Information


The UNC Adult Neurology Residency Program is an ACGME-accredited categorical, 4-year program (PGY1-PGY4) that accepts 5 residents per year. Applications are submitted through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) system.

The following items must be submitted to ERAS in order to schedule an interview:

  • Common Application Form via ERAS
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Dean's Letter (MSPE)
  • Letters of Reference (a minimum of 3)
  • Official Medical School Transcripts
  • Personal Statement
  • USMLE Transcripts or COMLEX Transcripts
  • Photograph (optional, but preferred to track applicants after interviews)


Interviews are scheduled from October through January following the receipt of a completed application and supporting documents.  The deadline for submission of applications is December 31, but applicants are encouraged to complete their applications earlier to allow for flexibility in scheduling interviews.

2013-2014 Interview Dates: to be announced in August 2013

Information for international medical graduate applicants

  • We welcome applications from international medical graduates.
  • We do not have a minimum USMLE board score cut-off requirement for interviews, but applicants who score below the mean or require repeated attempts to pass any exam are generally not competitive.
  • We do not have a cut-off for year of graduation from medical school, but applicants who have had a significant time away from clinical duties are generally less competitive.
  • Prior clinical experience in the United States is extremely advantageous.
  • We do not offer observerships through the Residency Program.
  • As with the policy required by the NRMP, all positions are filled via the NRMP.  We do not offer pre-match contracts.
  • All international medical graduates must be certified by the ECFMG in order to be ranked, but not prior to applying.
  • UNC-CH sponsors only J-1 visas for residents.  More information regarding J-1 visas can be found on the ECFMG website.
