THE NRMP Matching Process at Eisenhower Medical Center

Applicants requesting application information from the residency programs are directed to the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applicants submit their application with their required letters of recommendation, transcripts, and dean’s letters through ERAS for first year positions.

Eisenhower Medical Center accepts the universal application and requires all materials to be submitted in full before an interview may be scheduled.

The deadline for applications is December 31.

Program directors and recruiting team members determine who will be invited to interview. Interviews are scheduled weekly from mid-October through mid-January. Informational program packets are distributed during the interviews. The interview team members then submit their ratings and collectively prepare a rank order of candidates. The designated staff person then enters the ranking list prior to the submission deadline.

As soon as the match results are received and are appropriate to release, the results are shared with each program director and letters of appointment are mailed and e-mailed to each new resident member.
