Application Process

All applications are processed through ERAS. We begin reviewing applications as soon as they are released to the program. All applications should include: a completed ERAS form, MSPE, medical school transcript, personal statement, and three Letters of Recommendation. The internal medicine residency does a holistic review of applications but at a minimum the candidates eligible for selection for interview will have the following:

  • USMLE/COMLEX Parts 1 and 2; passed on first attempt.*
  • Medical school graduation (including required internship) should be within five years of residency application.
  • Valid ECFMG certificate for graduates of international medical schools.
  • United States, Canada or United Kingdom clinical experience is desirable but not required for consideration.

*We recognize the impact of the pandemic on the recruitment class of 2020-2021, particularly the suspension of clinical skills exams by USMLE and COMLEX. We anticipate that LCME and COCA accredited medical schools will provide the appropriate documentation for their 2021 graduating classes. For international medical graduates, we will accept the five pathways established by the ECFMG for certification this year.

Application deadline is December 1. Interviews are by invitation only. Selected candidates will be invited through ERAS and eligible to schedule their interview through the ERAS scheduler.

All interviews will be conducted virtually during the 2020-2021 recruitment season. Interview information will be provided to invited candidates. Our pre-interview dinner this year will be replaced with a virtual meeting so that candidates can still have the opportunity to speak with our residents outside of the formal interview day.

All applicants considered for acceptance into the University of Connecticut Internal Medicine Program will be scheduled for an interview with the program director and other faculty. The University of Connecticut selects from among eligible applicants based on their preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills, and personal qualities such as motivation and integrity. Our program does not discriminate with respect to gender, race, age, religion, color, natural origin, disability, or any other applicable legally protected status.

We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment in all respects and for all learners.

Please note the University of Connecticut only sponsors J-1 visas for candidates who are not permanent resident.
