Welcome to the Department of Neurology Application Process!

Candidates who wish to apply to our program may do so only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

For more information regarding ERAS and how to apply, please contact your Dean's office or the ERAS Web site.

Application deadline: The application process will remain open until December 1, after the Dean's letter is transmitted to us by ERAS. We reserve the right to stop accepting applications any time after the Dean's Letters have arrived.

The materials required for complete application via ERAS are:

  • We ask that graduation from medical school be within 3-5 years

We will be filling 5 positions. Our program is categorical (4 year program) and it is mandatory that the first year internship be done with us. A personal interview with members of the Residency Selection Committee is mandatory. These interviews are arranged by invitation only at the discretion of the Interview Committee. All communications during the application and interview process between the applicant and the program director or academic coordinator will be by e-mail. Therefore, you must have a valid e-mail address listed in your ERAS application. We interview IMGs, and sponsor H-1 and J-1 visas.
