Applying to Residency
Here at BrownEM, we offer thirteen categorical PGY-1 Emergency Medicine Resident positions each year through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Applications are only accepted through the Electronic Resident Application System (ERAS). We look forward to learning more about you and wish you the best of luck in your application process.
Interview dates for 2019-2020 are as follows: November 5 (afternoon only), November 6, November 12 (afternoon only), November 13, November 19 (afternoon only), November 20, December 4, December 10 (afternoon only), December 11, December 17 (afternoon only), December 18, and January 8. ***Snow day back up: January 7th.
Interview days begin with breakfast at 8:00 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m. You will have a coffee and dessert break with residents after the lunchtime conference hour. On the "afternoon only" dates, we are planning to start with lunch around 11a.m. and will end at 4:00 p.m. The schedule is subject to change and will be confirmed in offers/invites.
Whether visiting us for a full day or an afternoon only, please plan on attending dinner with the residents the Tuesday evening before (or after) your interview. Spouses and significant others are more than welcome to attend the dinners.
We typically begin to extend Invitations to Interview about 10-14 days after the MSPE is released. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, and we continue to send offers to Interview throughout the Fall/Winter. The timing of an invitation is not indicative of your strength as an applicant, but simply a reflection of the time intensive process it takes to thoroughly review your materials as we consider the entirety of your application in the decision-making process. We begin to send rejections towards the end of October and throughout the entire season as we fill our schedule.
We never offer more invitations than we have open spots to interview, so rest assured you will have a spot when you get an invite.
There are so many amazing students who apply to our Program, and although we would love to meet as many of you as we can, due to the sheer volume of interest, we do limit our invitations to a select group of applicants. We review each application in its entirety to get a sense of the whole individual, but we usually only extend invitations to those who Pass their USMLEs on the first attempt. Our residents consider service, leadership, and scholarly activity as important tenets to continue to foster during residency training, and we look for that potential in our applicants as well. We look forward to reviewing your materials, and we wish everyone the best of luck in the Match.
