Residency Application

We will be accepting applications through the AAMC computerized ERAS (Electronic Residency Application System) for July 2019 on September 15, 2018. While we still require the USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK, we will accept the COMLEX PE as equivalent to the Step 2 CS. Note that we must receive the scores by February 7th noon in order to be ranked. Access can be obtained at ERAS.

All of the ERAS deadlines will be followed, with the exception that we must receive all applications by November 22, 2018 to be considered and ranked for the Spring 2019 match. International medical graduates seeking a first-year position outside of the match will only be considered post-match. We do not use any minimum USMLE score other than passage of each part within 3 attempts (Texas State Board regulations). We select residents based upon the complete application.  We do not require that an applicant complete a pathology rotation. However, if a rotation has been completed, applicants are encouraged to include a letter of recommendation from a supervising faculty member from that rotation. Applications other than from ERAS (universal forms, etc.) will not be accepted. For more information regarding international medical graduates, please go here.

All applications will be reviewed by the residency committee, and candidates who meet our qualifications will be invited for an interview.

The residency program is fully accredited for 16 positions. Clinical and research fellowships are also offered. Four positions are routinely available each year for residents.
