Details on applying to our residency in pathology.
Program ID #3003521224
The University at Buffalo Department of Pathology participates in the National Residency Matching Program for first year positions.
The program abides by all of the regulations of the NRMP. No Pre-Match offers are available to applicants. Openings, if available, for years other than first year, and those that occur during the academic year will be filled outside the match. The Program does not offer observerships, internships, externships, research or volunteer positions.
Applicants to the program must apply only via ERAS. Complete applications should be submitted as early as possible. Applications received after November 1st may not receive appropriate review.
Applications are evaluated on a number of criteria. Emphasis is placed on the applicant´s cognitive abilities, communication skills, clinical skills, knowledge, and record of achievement. In addition, the applicant´s ability, as judged by faculty members during a personal interview to adapt to the program, to work as a member of a team composed of faculty, resident colleagues, laboratory technicians and support staff, and to develop effective patient/physician relationships are equally important criteria. The following process has been designed to facilitate the search for the "right" match.
Every application is screened by the Selection Committee, which is composed of the Program Director and appointed faculty members. The Selection Committee evaluates each application on the basis of the following criteria:
Based on the Selection Committee´s recommendation, applicants are selected to pursue their application with a personal interview.
Interviews are scheduled for a full day, and applicants are offered several dates from which to choose in the months of October through January. During the course of the interview day, applicants meet first as a group with the Program Director who gives an overview of the program. This is followed by individual interviews with the faculty, lunch with the residents and a tour of the Department´s facilities.
