Thank you for your interest in the Internal Medicine Residency Program at The University Graduate School of Medicine.
For the 2020-2021 interviewing season, we will be participating in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAs). We have formally agreed to not accept applications outside the ERAs system. Please do not mail applications to us through the postal system - we will not be able to process them. To apply to our program, simply go to the ERAs web site and follow the directions. The Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) has agreed to be the contact agency for all international medical graduates. They will assist you with any questions you may have regarding ERAs. If you are a foreign medical graduate, you will be required to go through them.
We also participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) so we have agreed to only accept applicants who are participating in the NRMP. We do not offer positions outside the NRMP. We have 12 positions available for PGY-1 residents. At this time our program does not have any vacancies for 2nd & 3rd year residents. Currently, we have 14 out of 37 International Medical Graduates in our program.
We review all applications sent to us through ERAs. In the 2019-2020 application season, we received almost 2,000 applications for our 12 positions & filled through ERAS. Our requirements are:
Please note that we do not deviate from these rules - we really do mean no more than 5 years following graduation from medical school, one full year of prior U.S. training and all tests must be passed on the first attempt.
A brief description of our program follows. To find out more, please visit UT Graduate School of Medicine, Department of Medicine.
Again, thank you for your inquiry. We feel we have an excellent program to offer you. Deadline for receipt of applications will be December 1, 2020.

Description of the Program (.pdf)
"Cancer care is an important part of Internal Medicine residency training. The oncology rotation teaches not only the signs, symptoms, biomarkers, diagnostic tests, and treatment options, but also residents learn how to help patients through such a trying process. Sharing these experiences allow us to connect with patients on a far greater level than just the scientific aspect of medicine."
