Applications will be accepted only from participants in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). If you wish to apply to the department’s residency program tracks (Elizabeth (Traditional), Biddle Point (Urban Underserved) and Union (Community Apprenticeship), please indicate within ERAS what tracks you are interested in when you complete your application. Please note that you can apply to all three tracks or any combination that you prefer.  Also, be aware each track has its own NRMP ID number.

Invitations for personal interviews are based on review of the application materials requested. Interviews are scheduled on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays from October through January. Applicants are given ample opportunities to discuss the program with the faculty and residents. Each applicant is formally interviewed by a resident and two faculty members, one of whom will be the residency director. Ranking in the NRMP is made on the basis of commitment to a career in family medicine, academic excellence, communication skills and other factors.
