General Surgery Residency: Manhattan Admissions

The deadline for applications to NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s General Surgery Residency in Manhattan is October 1 of the academic year before the start of residency training. Our program has seven categorical and six preliminary positions.

How to Apply

NYU Langone’s Department of Surgery general residency participates in the National Resident Matching Program®, also known as The Match®. We accept applications for entry at the residency year-one (PGY-1) level only through the Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS®). We do not accept PGY-2 applications through ERAS®, nor do we offer pre-match. We accept applications regardless of graduation date.

The deadline for 2021 residency program applications is October 1, 2021, for an official start date of July 21, 2022. We begin downloading and reviewing applications in October 2021 when they are released to programs in ERAS®. Interviews take place in November and December 2021. Applicants who are selected for an interview will be notified by ERAS® no later than November 10, 2021.

NYU Grossman School of Medicine accepts graduates of international medical schools. U.S. clinical experience is preferred but not mandatory. We do not offer H-1B sponsorship for house staff, residents, or fellows. J-1 sponsorship is available through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates® (ECFMG®).

ECFMG® certification is not required to apply to our program; however, it is required before being offered an interview.
