Medical Student Application Information

  

We accept applications for the residency program only through ERAS.  You must work through your medical school dean’s office for processing on ERAS, even if you are not a recent graduate.  If you are a foreign medical school graduate, please refer to the ECFMG website.

The following items should be transmitted through ERAS:

  • A complete ERAS application
  • Scores on USMLE, Step 1 (and Step 2 if available)
  • A minimum of three letters of recommendation.  (We do not specifically require a Chair's letter.)
  • Medical school transcript
  • Dean’s letter (MSPE)
  • Personal Statement

Please note that the 2021-2022 application cycle has an accelerated ERAS timeline: Dean’s letters are expected to be transmitted by September 29th.  We expect applications to be otherwise complete by October 1.  We do not require any additional forms in hardcopy.

In a typical year, we review over 800 completed applications and select approximately 60 applicants for interviews.  We typically rank all of the students we interview.  We also rank, but do not formally interview, all students who do rotations, which include the visiting students as well as the GW students.  The rotation takes the place of a formal interview.
