How to Apply
To qualify for admission to the fellowship program, you must have completed a general surgical residency or be beyond post-graduate year 3 and have a guaranteed position to complete your general surgical training.

We do not require a minimum USMLE score, although all scores must be passing. There is no requirement regarding length of time since medical school graduation.
- Completed SAFAS application
- Three letters of recommendation: one from the department chair or your General Surgery Program Director; the others should come from surgical faculty members.
- USMLE scores
- ABSITE scores
- Personal Statement

We use email to communicate with applicants, including invitations for interviews. It is critical that applicants check their e-mail frequently during the application period.
