Internal Medicine Residency How to Apply

Applications for the Drexel University College of Medicine/Hahnemann University Hospital Internal Medicine Residency are accepted only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). All positions are filled via the NRMP match.

The ERAS program code for the categorical medicine program is 1849140C0, and the code 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 who are selected for interviews will be invited to spend a day with us in order to 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 31. As part of the application, we request:

  • A medical school dean's letter and transcript
  • Three letters of recommendation including one from the Department of Medicine at your school
  • USMLE or COMLEX scores
  • Curriculum vitae
  • A personal statement

If applicable, you will also need a valid ECFMG certificate to be considered in the match.

To be considered for an interview, an applicant must meet minimum exam scores. USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 minimum scores are 220. COMLEX minimum scores Level 1 and Level 2 are 550.

For International Medical Graduates

The Drexel/HUH Internal Medicine Residency recognizes that outstanding physicians come from all over the world. We review all applications to find the most qualified individuals and do accept international graduates for our residency program. Hands-on clinical experience in the United States is highly recommended, but not required. Research experience is also helpful but not required. Recently matched international medical graduates have completed the program within the last five years.

A candidate must be legally authorized to work in the United States in order to be appointed/employed within our institution. We reserve the right to elect not to 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 visa. If you now 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 Graduate Medical Education office directly at 215.762.2618.
