Application Requirements

Residency applications for the University of Vermont Hematology/Medical Oncology Fellowship Program at the UVM Medical Center are submitted via Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

The Hematology/Medical Oncology Fellowship Program at UVM Medical Center participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

Applications are accepted from July 15 to September 1. Individual interviews are scheduled from mid-August through October on Mondays and Fridays. 

Once an applicant is invited to interview, we welcome any additional requests for special information, to meet particular faculty, or visit specific facilities or programs across the entire institution in order to tailor the interview to an applicant's specific interests.

Materials required from all applicants are:

  • Application
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal Statement
  • Dean's Letter
  • Transcripts
  • A minimum of three (3) recent letters of reference from direct supervisors

Successful completion of Steps 1, 2 (CK & CS) and it is highly recommend that Step 3 be completed as well, of either the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) or both Level 1 & 2 (CE & PE) of the comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX). D.O. applicants must be in or have completed an ACGME accredited residency program.

International applicants must:

  • Have a J-1 Visa or have a U.S. citizen Permanent Resident status. No other Visas will be accepted. H1B are not accepted, however, if applicants holding H1B visas are willing to change to J1 status they could be considered.
  • Have a current certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)
  • Successfully completed the Clinical Skills requirement
  • Have worked in clinical medicine in the United States within the last two years
    NOTE: an observership does not fulfill this requirement

We invite five applicants at a time to come to interview. Each applicant is interviewed separately. The typical interview day will run from 8:30am to 1:30pm. Applicants find it convenient to arrive the previous night.

The interview schedule is variable, but involves meeting several faculty for 30 minutes each, lunch with current fellows, a tour of the main facilities, and possibly attending a conference or rounds. Due to the large volume of applications we receive, we are not able to respond to each applicant.

We are committed to maintaining the integrity of the entire application process to conform to the highest ethical standards and to provide a personal, individualized, and informative experience for each candidate.
