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

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 recommendations, all of our residency program interviews will be held virtually. You must select your preferred interview date via Thalamus to confirm your interview slot. You may also wait-list, decline, or reschedule via Thalamus. Please familiarize yourself with the software.  Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we ask for a response within 2 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 one week 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 one week prior to your scheduled interview date without valid justification (illness, family emergency, severe weather that results in canceled flight, etc.).
