How to Apply

Application Deadline

We will accept applications and supporting documents only via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). The application deadline for our program is December 15.

Materials Required for All Applicants

To process your application, we require the materials listed below. All of these materials must be submitted electronically before you are invited for an interview.

  • Common ERAS application form.
  • Medical school transcript.
  • United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 scores (and Step 2 scores when available).
  • A letter from the chair or designee of the Department of Medicine (not required for the Transitional Year Residency Program or Preliminary Year Program).
  • A minimum of three letters of recommendation from full-time faculty members, preferably two from faculty members of the Department of Medicine.
  • Dean’s letter of recommendation.

Additional Information for International Medical Graduates

Applicants who are international medical graduates must have graduated from a medical school that is certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). They must have graduated from medical school within the past 5 years, and they must have a complete ERAS file that includes all of the information listed above. Traditionally, international applicants who have been the most successful in gaining admission are those who have two-digit scores over 95 in the USMLE and also have prior clinical training in the United States. International applicants with these exceptional qualifications account for from one to three interns per year. The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Medical Education Program sponsors the J-1 visa for applicants who are accepted.
