Application Process - Emergency Medicine Residency

  • Residency applications are submitted via Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS)
  • The Emergency Medicine Residency Program at UVM Medical Center participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP)
  • Our EM program participates in the ERAS Program Signaling component of the ERAS Supplemental Application. We recommend that Larner College of Medicine students and all students that rotate with us for a visiting student rotation NOT use one of their five tokens for our program. (We already know that you are highly interested in our residency program since you rotated with us, and you should use your limited tokens to communicate interest to other programs that you are considering highly.) For additional advice on how to use the Program Signaling tokens, see this link from CORD.
  • All applications are reviewed by our Program Leadership and our Application Review Committee.
  • We encourage submission prior to the ERAS application opening date, as we start to review applications immediately. We require complete applications by October 15 to allow us time to give all applications full review. If there is a delay in obtaining your application materials, such as letters of recommendation, you should email our Program Administrator after October 16, so that your application can be reviewed again with complete information.
  • Invitations to interview are emailed via Thalamus.
  • When interview invitations are sent, unless otherwise noted, applicants will have 72 hours to accept or decline.
  • All interviews will be conducted virtually this year.

Materials required from all applicants:

  • Application
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal Statement
  • Dean's Letter
  • Transcripts
  • A minimum of three (3) recent letters of reference from direct supervisors. At least one SLOE is required.
  • We do not currently require USMLE Step 2 for a complete application. However, we feel that a Step 2 score is a helpful piece of information for the selection committee to have access to, especially prior to final ranking in February.

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 acceptable.)
  • Have graduated from medical school within the last two years
  • 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

Interview Day

  • Interviews are generally scheduled on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from October to January. Space is limited so please respond as soon as possible to emails regarding interview scheduling.
  • We will have morning and afternoon sessions on interview days with each lasting about 4-5 hours. The day will include a welcome session with our Program Leadership and a combination of individual interviews with faculty and panel interviews with residents and staff.
