Application Requirements

Thank you for your interest in our residency program!

  • We have NO unfilled positions at this time.
  • We do not offer extracurricular observerships.
  • We do not sponsor any type of Visa.

Applications are accepted exclusively through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) program.  The deadline for receipt of application is January 16th.  Information about the ERAS program is available at your dean’s office or through the ECFMG office.

For your application to be considered, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Score of 80+ on Parts I and II of the USMLE or COMLEX.  The ONLY way lower scores are accepted is IF the applicant has already passed USMLE 3.  Multiple attempts to achieve minimum passing scores significantly lowers the applicants ranking.  Applicants with 3 or more attempts on any exam are not considered.
  • No more than five years out of medical school
  • At least twelve months of supervised clinical experience in a United States health care facility  within the last two years
  • Valid ECFMG certificate, if applicable
  • Must be eligible for licensure in the state of Arkansas at the end of the first year of training

The Residency Faculty will review applications and offer interviews to those applicants who meet ALL of the above criteria.

Our program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and follows the ethical guidelines established by the NRMP in the selection of residents.

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
