Program Eligibility & Requirements
Thank you for your interest in Gundersen Medical Foundation's Internal Medicine Residency Program.
We accept applications only via the ERAS system. We participate in the NRMP. Our application deadline is November 1.
We do participate in the couples match through the NRMP.
We require that all applicants must have passed USMLE or COMLEX Step One prior to submitting their application. In addition, we only review applications of those individuals who have passed the USMLE or COMLEX exams on their first attempt.
We only accept applications from those individuals who have graduated from medical school within the past 24 months. In the interim, applicants must have been engaged in meaningful clinical or research experience. International medical graduates must be ECFMG certified prior to starting residency. U.S. clinical experience is not mandatory.
We do sponsor H1 and J1 visas, and we are exempt from the H1 cap.
We do not offer observerships/externships for international medical graduates unless they have already been accepted into the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Gundersen.
