Program Application

We participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) and accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

The ERAS Common Application Form including:

  1. Medical School Transcript
  2. USMLE 1,2,3 Transcripts
  3. 2 Letters of Recommendation, and
  4. 1 Letter from the residency program director in internal medicine
  5. ECFMG status report, if applicable.

To be considered, applicants must complete an ACGME Internal Medicine Residency or equivalent by July 1 of the fellowship start date.  We support J-1 visas. For international medical graduates (IMG), it is important to note that completing an ACGME-accredited Internal Medicine Residency Training Program and ABIM board-eligibility in Internal Medicine is required for ABIM board-eligibility and certification in Infectious Disease.

We understand that some anticipated ID clinical elective rotations may not be undertaken, that anticipated research projects may not be completed, and that previously envisioned letters of recommendation might not materialize. We assure you that we will review all applications mindful of these realities, and we will not hold schedule changes imposed by COVID-19 against any applicant.

Applicants may begin the application as of July 1st, 2021, for training that starts July 2022.

All interviews for the 2021 interview season will be conducted virtually through Zoom. A typical interview day will consist of 3-4 faculty interviews, a virtual get-together/lunch with current fellows, and virtual attendance at an ID conference (either live or pre-recorded). Individual schedules and details will be communicated prior to the interview day to each candidate.
