Applications to the Emory Family Practice Residency Program are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). This service is available to all US medical/osteopathic graduates through their medical school's dean’s office. Canadian medical school graduates should contact the Canadian Resident Matching Service for ERAS. International medical graduates may access ERAS through the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).
PGY 1 Applicants should submit a completed ERAS application that must include:
PGY 2+ Applicants
Matches for positions in a PGY 2 or PGY 3 spot will occur outside of the match. Applicants must have a minimum of 10 months of transferable advanced placement credit (per ABFP guidelines and application) and contact the Program Director and Coordinator for application steps.
International Medical Graduates (IMG) Policies
Only those IMGs with an H-1 or J-1 visa or permanent resident status may be enrolled in post-graduate medical training. Emory will sponsor the H-1 and J-1 visas providing the IMG have documented evidence of successful completion of all necessary components by December 31. This includes passing scores for USMLE Steps 1, 2 and 3. Application will be withdrawn from consideration if this requirement is not met.
Emory School of Medicine and Department of Family and Preventive Medicine does not discriminate in recruiting on the basis of race, national origin, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, veteran’s status, or disability. We value diversity and individuality in our candidates.
Deadlines for Application
The application deadline is November 30. Interviews will be scheduled on selected Mondays and Fridays from October 1 through January 31. We provide lodging for those traveling into Georgia, as well as breakfast and lunch. Candidates should expect to spend the entire day with our team. Significant Others are invited to attend the resident dinner that occurs the night before for applicants and select resident representatives.
