  • 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 and the Neurology Residency Program will not offer new H1-B visas to matched candidates to Neurology.  We will continue to accept J1 visas for residents entering our graduate medical training program. 


    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.
