  • Neurology - How to Apply

    Einstein Medical Center’s Neurology Residency Program and Preliminary Internal Medicine Residency Programs both participate in the Electronic ResidencyApplication Service (ERAS).   Complete applications require a dean’s letter and transcript, CV, National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) transcript (USMLE Steps 1, 2 and 3, if available) or COMLEX score, personal statement and three letters of recommendation (minimum of one from Neurology). If the applicant is from a foreign medical school, please provide proof of ECFMG certification and visa information. The application deadline is December 15th.

    What is the criterion for application to the Neurology residency program?

    Our program only accepts residency applications through ERAS. US clinical experience is not required. We do not have a cut off year for graduation and a minimum score for USMLE or COMLEX; however, we give stronger preference to those applicants who have passed all steps upon first attempt.


    Do you sponsor any visas for this program?


    Albert Einstein Medical Center sponsors H1B and J1 visas for residents entering graduate medical, dental, and podiatric training programs at its sole discretion. Candidates that desire H1B visa sponsorship should express that desire at the time of program interview. Only graduate medical training program candidates with USMLE or COMLEX Step 3 results posted to the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) prior to February 1 will be eligible for consideration of H1B visa sponsorship. Einstein will indicate to candidates in writing Einstein’s desire to sponsor an H1B visa.


    Is an ECFMG certificate required to be considered for interview?


    An ECFMG certificate is required at the time that the rank order list is submitted but is not required to be considered for interview.
