UW Department of Surgery participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), hosted by the Association of American Medical Colleges.

  • We do not accept paper applications.
  • Applicant photos are downloaded from ERAS and useful in the ranking process, therefore it is considerably advantageous for applicants to submit their photo.
  • We strongly encourage completion of the USMLE Step 2 CK exam prior to January 1 of the application year.

Students and graduates of foreign medical schools should view our Certificate Program for International Physicians, which is a pre-requisite for those who seek preliminary residency positions in our program. Canadian applicants should contact the Canadian Residents Matching Service. F-1 Visa holders must receive pre-approval prior to ranking.
