Applications

The Vanderbilt Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program is an ACGME accredited, four-year residency program with six residents in each year of training.  The program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and accepts applications only from the Association of American Medical College’s Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  You may access ERAS services through your medical school or directly at www.aamc.org/eras

While an applicant’s academic credentials are a strong consideration in the selection process, the program also highly values a background in team-based clinical care, strong performance in high-acuity settings, leadership roles, significant service commitments, research experiences, and academic productivity.  All of these factors will be considered in initial application review and ranking for match.

    • USMLE Step 2 or COMLEX Level 2 Scores optional, but encouraged
