Begin Your Geriatric Fellowship Application Process

1. Applications are accepted through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). ERAS is a service that transmits residency, fellowship and osteopathic internship applications, letters of recommendations, MSPEs, medical school transcripts, USMLE transcripts, COMLEX transcripts, and other supporting credentials from the applicant and the applicant’s designated dean's office to program directors using the Internet. ERAS software is used by program staff to receive, sort, review, evaluate, and rank applications.

  • ERAS website
  • Written applications for unfilled or off-cycle positions will be accepted via mail or email

2. Interviews will be conducted in person for the 2023-2024 academic year.

3. Selection of residents occurs through the NRMP (National Residency Match Program). The NRMP main match provides an impartial venue for matching applicants' preferences for residency positions with program directors' preferences for applicants.
