Internal Medicine Residency How to Apply

Applications for the Drexel Internal Medicine Residency are accepted only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We no longer offer pre-match positions, all positions are filled via the NRMP Match.

The ERAS program code for the categorical medicine program is 1849140C0, and for the preliminary medicine program is 1849140P0.

We receive a very large number of applications every year through ERAS, and are looking for the most motivated and qualified individuals. It is strongly advised that you complete your application as early as possible. Once your application is complete, it is reviewed by our resident selection committee. Applicants selected for interviews will be invited to spend a day with us, meet our faculty and house staff, and learn more about our residency program and Hahnemann University Hospital.

Our deadline for receipt of applications is October 31st. As part of the application, we request a medical school dean's letter and transcript, three letters of recommendation, a letter (if available) from the chair of the Department of Medicine, USMLE scores, curriculum vitae and a personal statement. If applicable, you should also have a valid ECFMG certificate. There is no official USMLE examination score requirement, but USMLE scores are still an important factor in our selection process due to the large volume of applicants.

For an applicant to be considered for an interview, the applicant must meet minimum exam scores. USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 minimum scores are 220. For those who completed the COMLEX exams, the minimum scores for Level 1 and Level 2 are 550.

A candidate must be legally authorized to work in the United States in order to be appointed/employed in our institution. We reserve the right to elect to not hire candidates who require immigration sponsorship, such as the H1B visa, which is no longer sponsored by our institution. We do accept certain non-employer sponsored visas, such as the J1. If you currently, or in the future, require employer sponsorship for a visa status, you must communicate this during the interview process. For more information on the hospital's visa policy, please contact the GME office directly at 215.762.2618.
