 Med-Peds Application Criteria

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We will recruit for two PGY1 Med-Peds residency positions for the 2021-2022 academic year and will accept applications from October 21, 2020, to November 30, 2020. All interviews this year will occur virtually.

Applications will only be accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Email inquiries will not be answered. Please contact your medical school for assistance with filing this electronic application. International graduates are advised to contact the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)​ for assistance.

Th​e Med-Peds Re​sidency Program uses the following minimum criteria when considering applications:​

  • Minimum two letters of recommendation. At least one of these should be from a U.S. or Canadian physician who has personal knowledge of your clinical abilities.
  • MSPE (Medical Student Performance Evaluation), formerly known as the Dean's Letter.
  • To be ranked, all applicants must have passed Step 1 and 2 CK of the USMLE, or Level 1 and 2-CE of COMLEX-USA; and passed the clinical skills exam administered by the USMLE (Step 2 CS) or the COMLEX-USA (Level 2-PE) or meet alternative criteria set forth by ECFMG.
  • All applications will be reviewed. We do n​ot employ a specific cut-off score for either the USMLE or COMLEX-USA examinations; however, we strongly recommend applicants pass these examinations on first attempt. Because we receive over 200 applications for the two positions offered, a more competitive applicant will have USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 scores of 230 or higher, or COMLEX-USA Level 1 and Level 2 scores of 550 and above.

We strive to adhere to the hightest professional standards as encouraged by the National Resident Matching Program and the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine concerning communication with our applicants during and following your visit with us. All program representatives - faculty, staff and trainees - who take part in recruitment are trained to know which questions are appropriate to minimize undue stress and the possibility of coercion of applicants. We believe that every applicant is entitled to a professional, courteous experience. You are highly encouraged to approach or email any member of the leadership team with questions or concerns. We look forward to showing you all of the benefits of training here.
