Application Requirements

Important Dates & Deadlines

All applications for positions in our four-year categorical neurology program must go through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP), using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We conduct a holistic review of 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) by the time of rank-list submission.

All applications are reviewed and considered for interview. Because the holistic structure naturally slows the overall review process, interview invitations are sent on a rolling basis throughout the interview season. Emailed requests to review applications are not necessary unless there is a very specific issue that the applicant wishes to bring to our attention (eg, coordination of couples-match interviews) and will not have an impact on the selection to interview.

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. UF can only sponsor H1-b visas if the applicant is currently on an F (student) visa and eligible for an OPT year.

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.
