Program Eligibility & Requirements
We accept and review residency applications only via the ERAS system. We will begin accepting applications mid-September, with our application deadline Nov. 1, 2020. All interviews will be conducted virtually.
We do participate in the couples match through the NRMP.
We require that all applicants have passed USMLE or COMLEX Step 1 prior to submitting their application. In addition, we only review applications of individuals who have passed the USMLE or COMLEX exams on their first attempt.
We would like three letters of recommendation, two of which must be from internal medicine or internal medicine subspecialties.
We only accept applications from 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 their residency. U.S. clinical experience is not mandatory.
We 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 Health System.
