Application and Interview
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology accepts 9 residents at the PGY 1 level, and participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). All applications from individuals who have completed or are completing requirements at an accredited medical school will be considered. Although senior electives in the department are not required for application, interested students should direct their inquiries to the Medical Student Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All applicants must apply through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). American medical graduates should contact their Dean's Office for more information. International medical graduates should contact the ECFMG.
Per APGO/CREOG COVID-19 recommendations, all of our residency program interviews will be held virtually. You must select your preferred interview date via MyERAS to confirm your interview slot. You may also wait-list, decline, or reschedule via MyERAS. Please familiarize yourself with MyERAS Interview Scheduler (pg. 48). Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we ask for a response within 3 business days. If you have not accepted our offer within that time, you will be notified that you've been placed on our wait list, and your spot will be offered to a different applicant. We offer interviews to those on our wait list in chronological order. Applicants who have accepted interviews must notify us two weeks prior to their scheduled interview date if they need to cancel or reschedule. As recommended by ERAS, we will notify your school’s dean’s office if you do not show up for your scheduled interview, or if you cancel later than two weeks prior to your scheduled interview date without valid justification (illness, family emergency, severe weather that results in canceled flight, etc.).
The deadline for applying to the Twin Cities Residency Program in Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women's Health match at the University of Minnesota is November 1st, 2020. Per CREOG and APGO guidelines, November 10th and November 17th will be the dates of our program's initial release of interview offers, followed by rolling offers.
