Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency Application
Thank you for your interest in applying to the Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency program at NYU Grossman School of Medicine.
Our diverse group of residents works directly with department faculty to provide evidence-based, high-quality care in obstetrics and gynecology and its subspecialties to a socioeconomically diverse group of patients, creating a rich and varied training environment.
We also offer compensation and benefits through the Office of Graduate Medical Education.
We select our residents for their energy, enthusiasm, and diligence, as well as for their dedication to providing unparalleled patient care and their commitment to academic medicine.
All applications must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS®). We do not accept hard copies. Appointments are made through the National Resident Matching Program®, also known as The Match®.
We accept applications from candidates wishing to complete the full four-year Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency. ERAS® applications are due in our office by October 21, 2020.
NYU Grossman School of Medicine will be piloting the use of a secondary application for selection into the 2021–22 training year. In addition to accepting applications submitted through ERAS®, we will be inviting select residency applicants to complete Casper Suite.
Casper Suite is a three-component set of selection tools designed to assess and understand an applicant's communication skills; noncognitive skills such as collaboration, team work, empathy, ethics, and professionalism; as well as alignment with our program. Casper Suite consists of an online assessment of professionalism (situational judgment evaluation), a video response to three standard questions, and an inquiry into priorities. These tools provide applicants with the opportunity to showcase their strengths and individuality and complement their ERAS application®. Learn more about Casper Suite.
NYU Grossman School of Medicine is using these expanded measures for application screening based on our interest in recruitment of physicians with a broad range of skills, our commitment to diversity, and our awareness that the 2020–21 application cycle has eliminated many of the ways we would typically get to know applicants beyond their grades and test scores. These measures also help us make fair decisions based on applicants’ personal and professional attributes, and not rely heavily on cognitive metrics alone.
We appreciate all you have put into preparing for a career in obstetrics and gynecology, and we wish you luck in your journeys.
