Applying to Our Program
Thank you for your interest in a PGY1 position with the OBGYN Residency Program in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of North Carolina. We hope that in exploring our website, you will have many of your questions addressed. 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.
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 1100 applications. We offer roughly 70 interviews for the seven PGY1 positions in our program. Once we have received your completed ERAS file, your application will receive careful consideration regarding an interview invitation.
For additional information, you can contact our Residency Program Manager, Ty Fraga.
Thank you for your interest in UNC and for considering our program. We wish you the very best of luck during this exciting time in your clinical career and we hope to see you in Chapel Hill.
