Applications for the General Surgery Residency Program at Carolinas Medical Center are accepted for the four categorical positions and the two preliminary positions from participants in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applications for the next academic year are accepted when the ERAS post office opens in early September. The general surgery application deadline is always October 15. Please note that interview days are often filled well before this date, so early application is recommended. Paper applications are not accepted.
Invitations for Interviews
Invitations for interviews are based on review of all application materials. Interviews are scheduled in November, December and January each year and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Invitations for interviews are sent via email. Please respond to an interview invitation immediately to reserve an interview time; interview days fill quickly, and all interview slots are filled well before our application deadline.
The Interview Day
The interview day begins at 8 a.m., with a welcome and overview of the residency program. Resident applicants are interviewed by two or more faculty members. Following interviews, applicants tour Carolinas Medical Center and are given an opportunity to tour the Cannon Research facility as well. All applicants have ample time to talk informally with other applicants, current surgical residents and surgical attendings during the day and at lunch.
