Emergency Medicine Residency Application Instructions
Applications to the residency at NYU Langone’s Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine are accepted from senior medical students from accredited medical schools and other qualified candidates through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and National Resident Matching Program.
Due to the large number of applications received each year, applicants are strongly encouraged to have all application documents submitted by September 27, 2023. The residency selection committee will review all completed applications after the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) is released on that date, and interviews will be offered on a rolling basis. The majority of interviews will take place on Mondays and Tuesdays from late October through January.
We are participating in the new Preference Signaling program through ERAS. Applicants are encouraged to assign signal tokens at their discretion.
Both virtual and in-person interviews will be offered this year. Applicants may choose whichever format suits their preferences, budgets, calendars, and geographies best. We are working hard to ensure that virtual and in-person interview days provide equivalent experiences, information, and opportunity for engagement to all applicants, regardless of their ability to travel to NYU Langone during this interview season. The choice of interview format will not affect an applicant’s chances of matching to the program. Applicants who interview virtually are welcome to come for an in-person "second look" visit if they feel that would help them understand our program and community better. Second look visits are neither required nor expected, however.
For medical students interested in learning more about our program by rotating with us at NYU Langone’s Ronald O. Perelman Center for Emergency Services and NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue, we have clinical rotation (subinternship) opportunities available to visiting students.
