Applications are accepted until November 1st. 

The Pathology Residency Program accepts applications via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applications by e-mail, mail, fax, or other delivery will not be accepted. 

Applications must include:

  • The common application form (ERAS)
  • An official medical school transcript
  • MSPE (medical school performance evaluation) (Dean’s letter)
  • 3 current letters of recommendation from faculty references
  • Personal statement
  • USMLE (Steps 1, 2CK, 2CS) / COMLEX (Levels 1, 2CD, 2PE) transcripts
  • ECFMG certificate (for international medical graduates, including U.S. applicants attending medical schools outside of the U.S.)


An in-person personal interview is required as part of the application process. All applications are reviewed and each one is evaluated and considered for interview on a case-by-case basis. Invitations are emailed to selected applicants in early October on a continual basis until all interview slots are full. All interviews are by invitation only and are conducted on select Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays usually from November to mid December.
