Criteria for Candidate Interview Selection:
The USA Family Medicine Residency participates in ERAS and will only consider those applicants who apply through the Match process. All applications will be screened for eligibility and qualified applicants will be offered an interview prior to the Match deadline. Preference will be given to applicants that have graduated within the past 2 years. Additional applicant qualifications are as follows:
Applicants must meet one of the following qualifications in order to be eligible for appointment at the PGY-I level:
- Graduate (or anticipated graduation prior to July 1 of application year) of a medical school accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME)
- Graduate (or anticipated graduation prior to July 1 of application year) of a medical school accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA)
- Graduate of a medical school outside the U.S: to be considered, the applicant must have a currently valid certificate from the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) and be eligible for licensure from the state of Alabama upon completion of a residency program.
- Applicants must have taken USMLE Steps I and II: Passed (1st attempt and score of > 215 preferred). The applicant should have at least one year of continuous and current education (either medical school or post medical school) in the United States.
Applicants for all positions will be selected from among those deemed eligible on the basis of their preparedness, ability, and interest in completion of the program without regard to race, creed, gender, or sexual preference. This process will consist of review of information as outlined in the application document, dean’s letter, letters of recommendation, and personal interview. Aptitudes, academic credentials, personal characteristics, and ability to communicate will be strongly considered in the selection process. Applicants not expressing a strong interest in Family Medicine will not be considered for a PGY-I position.
We do not sponsor any visas.
