We are committed to admitting applicants of the highest quality from diverse backgrounds.
We have a record of admitting fellows from backgrounds including pediatrics, pulmonary medicine, clinical neurophysiology, neurology, psychiatry, family medicine and internal medicine.
We accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) starting in July.
Our fellowship boasts a low fellow-to-faculty ratio; we accept only 2 fellows per year.
Any graduate of a U.S.-accredited medical residency may apply.

Graduates from foreign medical schools must also be certified by the Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).

We require you to submit your application by August 31.
We encourage you to submit your application sooner rather than later. Although we do not reject applications we receive later, we give stronger consideration to early applications.
Our interview committee, chaired by the program director, will select candidates to be invited for a personal meeting with the interview committee and a tour of our facilities. Our committee invites approximately 10 applicants for interview.
We conduct interviews in September and October.
If you are selected as an interviewee, you will meet with at least four members of our division and at least one current fellow. Our faculty will be scoring and evaluating you in writing for later review.
Our interview committee makes all final selections. We will select you based on the strength of your USMLE scores, personal statement, letters of recommendation and the impression you leave on our faculty.
