Are graduates of international medical schools accepted?
- Yes, we have a tradition of accepting residents from non-US medical schools.
- An applicant who is expected to graduate (or has graduated) from a non-LCME accredited international medical school must satisfy New York State’s 12-week rule in order to be eligible to participate in a medical residency training program in New York State. The rule, promulgated by the New York State Department of Health, provides that an individual who graduates from a non-LCME accredited international medical school may not train in New York State if his/her medical school education includes more than 12 weeks of clinical clerkship rotations outside of the country in which his/her medical school is located.
- For purposes of counting clinical rotation time that occurred outside of the country in which an applicant’s medical school is located, only rotations that are required for the applicant’s medical education degree should be considered.
- Exception for approved schools: The New York State Department of Education has approved a list of schools that are excluded from this general rule. Applicants who attend one of the following schools are not subject to the 12-week rule:

Do you participate in a separate osteopathic match?
- We are not participating in a separate osteopathic match at this time. We are concentrating our osteopathic applicants onto specific days for interviews to get to know our faculty more in-depth.
How many residency positions are there?
- We offer 10 residency positions per year.
How many people apply?
- We receive more than 2,200 applications during recruitment season.
When are the interviews and how are they conducted?
- Interviews take place from the beginning of November through January. We intend to interview in-person on Fridays this year. We understand that students will choose their style of interview for any number of reasons: traveling for interviews can be expensive and disruptive, some schools may not allow their students to travel to complete in-person interviews, or others may have family obligations that limit their ability to travel. After two years of virtual recruitment, we feel that the best way to understand where we work and live is by experiencing it with our residents at the preinterview dinner and on interview day.
- We ask that you be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as this is an employment requirement and consider the bivalent booster. Masks are still required in our offices when not eating or drinking.
- We typically do not offer second looks or open houses.
When will I be notified I have been selected for an interview?
- All applicants selected to be interviewed will be notified by email in a rolling fashion starting at the end of September to the beginning of November. We typically fill our interview slots by the end of November.
- To schedule your interview, please call our office directly. We do not over book interviews (offer more interviews than available interview slots); however, the interview calendar is filled on a first-come-first-serve basis and thus there will be more available dates the sooner you schedule. Likewise, if you do not plan to accept our offer to interview we would appreciate if you declined the offer as soon as possible so that we may extend your offer to another applicant.
