Applicants with previous training considered? Yes. The program prefers these applicants to include a letter from their current/former Program Director acknowledging their support of the applicant applying to the program and attesting to the resident’s being/having been a resident in good standing.

Interviews: After reviewing completed ERAS applications, applicants are invited to interview. We review all applications that are received through ERAS. Interviews are held November through January, with both morning and afternoon sessions.

In order to have ample time to thoroughly review the large number of high quality applications received, we plan to begin issuing interview invitations on a rolling basis beginning in Mid-October

Aeromedical Program: Aeromedical experience is not available due to resident safety concerns
