Our review committee does a holistic review and we do not have minimum for USLME scores, but they must have a passing score. The committee will begin reviewing applications on October 3, 2022.

Invites will be sent out during the week of Wednesday, October 26 and Tuesday, November 1, 2022. All interviews will be virtual using Thalamus. Interviews for the 2023 Match will be held on Friday, January 6, 2023, Saturday, January 7, 2023, Friday, January 13, 2023, Saturday, January 14, 2023 and Friday, January 20, 2023 (please note this session will begin at 8 a.m. EST).

For the 2023 ERAS® cycle, our program will strongly encourage all applicants to complete a supplemental ERAS application, offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants also will be required to complete the MyERAS application.

The additional information will help our program staff learn more about applicants’ medical education journey, including more meaningful information about work, volunteer, and research experiences, and help us better identify applicants who fit our program environment and mission.

Supplemental ERAS application closes for applicants at 5 p.m. EST on September 16, 2022.

Please bookmark the supplemental ERAS application section of the AAMC website to find the latest information, FAQs, and resources.
