How to Apply

Application Process

Applications to the University of Rochester/General Preventive Medicine and Public Health Residency Program will be accepted ONLY through the Association of American Medical College's Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) Applications should be completed by December 31st.

There currently is no match system for Preventive Medicine Residencies, so acceptances will be offered individually.

Applicants from U.S. or Canadian medical schools must pass Step I and Step 2 of the USMLE exam or Level 1 of the COMLEX exam before they are interviewed. Applicants from International Medical Schools may apply for admission to our residency program if they have passed Steps I II, IIcs and III of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), and, have been certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).All applicants must have completed (or be able to complete) their preliminary clinical internship year prior to their intended July 1st start date.

There is no NRMP for our program. Instead, we use the ACPM SAP process.

Interview Information

Applicants who are selected for an interview are notified by email and/or phone.  Interviews will be held between September and Mid January. In person interviews are preferred, so that prospective residents can get a better understanding or our program and we can better get to know you.  However phone interviews can be arranged if necessary.

*Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 2021-2022 application cycle will be conducted remotely.

The Interview Day

Applicants can expect to talk with multiple faculty members during their interview day as well as one or two current residents.
