How To Apply
Applying to Our Program
Prospective MFM Fellows are invited to interview based on information provided in the personal statement, letters of recommendation, scholastic accomplishments, and USMLE/Complex scores.
MFM fellowship program applications will be accepted only through the Association of American Medical College's (AAMC) Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) for all applications. USMLE/Complex scores are required, but CREOG scores are not. All fellows are expected to complete an on-site interview.
It is the policy of this program to select the most qualified candidates regardless of gender, race, creed, color, national origin, handicap, age, or sexual orientation. All applicants must participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). The program follows the guidelines of the NRMP and all applicants must register with the NRMP.
At this time, we are unable to accommodate J-1 visa status applicants within the MFM fellowship program.
We will be using electronic mail to communicate with applicants, including all invitations for interviews. We ask that you check your electronic mail frequently. Please direct all inquiries to Jillian Wood, Fellowship Coordinator, by email or calling our academic office at (585) 275-7480.

Selection of applicants for interviews will be made after a review of submitted ERAS applications which will be electronically accepted by our program. Applicants who are selected for an interview will be notified by email and details regarding the interview day will also follow via email.
The Interview Day
The interview day start and end times vary based on the day of the interview and the needs of the applicants. You will be scheduled to meet with faculty members and fellows where you will have an opportunity to learn more about our program and Rochester.
If there are specific fellow areas of interest, the schedule will be adjusted to allow for meetings with faculty who have similar interests. Please let us know if there is a faculty member or team member that is of particular interest to your future plans, and we will do our best to arrange this during your interview day.
If you need adjustments to the schedule to accommodate breastfeeding/pumping, please let us know when planning your interview day. We will assure that you have appropriate time and facilities built into the day.
Interviews will be conducted June - August for a start date the following July.
