We accept applications for the Internal Medicine Residency Program through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) beginning in September each year.
We receive more than 3,000 applications each year and interview approximately 250 applicants for 33 categorical and 4 preliminary positions.
The majority of international (IMG) applicants who have interviewed and matched with us have had scores of 90 and above on the first attempt on both Step 1 and Step 2. We accept J-1 visa sponsorship only.
For those attending medical school with a partner, our program does participate in the NRMP couple’s match.
Your three professional references should come from clinical faculty who know you well.
Residents are paid by University Medical Resident Services, P.C. (UMRS). A sample copy of the contract is available on the University at Buffalo Office of Graduate Medical Education website.
The listing of an applicant by a program on its certified rank order list or of a program by an applicant on the applicant’s certified rank order list establishes a binding commitment to offer or to accept an appointment if a match results. Each such appointment is subject to the official policies of the appointing institution in effect on the date the program submits its rank order list and is contingent upon the matching applicant meeting all eligibility requirements imposed by those policies.
