Application Requirements

Important Dates & Deadlines

Applications for positions in our four-year categorical neurology program will be accepted from September 15 through December 1 in the year prior to the anticipated start date. All applications must go through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP), using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We review all applications and invite the most promising applicants to interview. Interviews are generally conducted from mid-October through mid-December. Rank order lists must be submitted to the NRMP by mid-February, with Match Day generally in mid-March. Please visit the NRMP and ERAS website for complete information about application, schedules, and regulations for the binding match.

Qualifications

We welcome all qualified applicants from the United States and abroad. Applicants must have an M.D. or D.O. degree or be in their senior year of medical school. Foreign medical graduates must comply with all requirements of the Accreditation Committee for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and must obtain certification from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).

Visas

We will sponsor J-1 visas. Unfortunately, the short timeline between Match Day and the start date precludes initiation of a new H1-b visa application or porting an existing H1-b visa.

Technical Standards for Residency:

Candidates for Neurology Residency must have abilities and skills in the areas of observation, communication, motor, intellectual, and behavioral and social attitudes, as outlined in the technical requirements for residency.
