How to Apply

Following an initial screening of the ERAS application, and based on minimum requirements for acceptance into the program, applicants for residency are invited for interviews.

The Resident Selection Committee conducts interviews from about 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on four Saturdays during the fall and winter months. Between 30 and 40 applicants are interviewed at each session by up to four faculty members.

Applicants are our guests for dinner on the Friday night preceding the interview session; current residents are on hand at the dinner for an informal discussion of the program.

There are a few applicants who cannot come to UB during the scheduled interview time. For these candidates, it may be possible to set up special interviews during the week. These candidates are then referred to the selection committee at their next committee meeting.

All applications must be submitted through the ERAS system. If you have questions about the minimum requirements or other individual issues, e-mail or write to our training program administrator:
