Application Process

Thank you for your interest in our program.

We participate fully in the National Resident Matching Program and its Electronic Residency Application Service. We urge you to submit an application through the NRMP ERAS for one of our four (4) PGY-1 categorical positions in obstetrics and gynecology. As such, we cannot negotiate with any candidate prior to the match that next occurs in mid-March 2018. We offer no pre-match positions.

We require that you have a passing score on United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 on your first attempt to be considered for an interview; we require a passing score on USMLE Step 2 prior to the Rank Order Match Certification deadline set by the NRMP.

You must possess a valid ECFMG certificate at the time of application to our program. We require a minimum of three (3) letters of recommendation in addition to your dean’s letter. Our deadline for receipt of applications is the first Friday in November. We invite candidates to interview here in Norfolk based on the entire application dossier. We interview in November and December.

Our institution supports J-1 visas only.

We adhere to American federal law, and thus do not discriminate based on race, age, gender, or country of origin, given valid work permits to work in the United States.

We do not offer observerships to prospective residents. No U.S. observership/clinical experience is necessary to apply to our residency. Medical students may complete an obstetrics and gynecology rotation through our medical school.

We expect applicants to demonstrate a spoken and written mastery of English. We accept no applicants who graduated from medical school more than eight (8) years prior to application.

After receiving your application through ERAS, the Residency Program Administration reviews candidate materials and selects individuals who qualify for interviews. Applicants selected for interviews will be notified by e-mail to choose one of our interview dates in November, December, or January to visit our program. The interview day agenda consists of program updates, tours, and individual interviews with the faculty and residents.

The deadline for applications is the October 15th.
