Family Medicine Residency Applicants

The Family Medicine Residency program accepts all residents through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Applicant materials are accepted for both matches through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), available at all U.S. medical schools, and the office of the ECFMG. Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis as they become available on the ERAS system.

Successful applicants should have strong scores on Step 1 and Step 2 of the USMLE. Applicants are not screened by cutoff scores alone. Personal statements, life experiences and good interview skills are key determinants for selection.

For international medical graduates, most successful applicants should have at least one year of clinical experience in the American health care system to be competitive. Most of the successful international medical graduates graduated from medical schools within the past five years.

Applicants must apply through ERAS to be considered for a Family Medicine Residency. Our residency coordinator, M.A. Dowdell ( ), will contact applicants with interview scheduling options.

The 2020-21 interview season will begin in October and runs into February. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, applicants will be interviewed virtually. M.A. Dowdell will guide you through the process once your application is screened and approved. Based on local health recommendations, physical visits to Columbus may be available later in the recruiting season.
