Internal Medicine - How to Apply

What are the application requirements?

Einstein Healthcare Network’s Internal Medicine Residency Program participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Complete applications require a dean’s letter and transcript, National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) transcript and three letters of recommendation. The application deadline is November 30. Selected applicants are invited to virtually interview on select dates.

For the 2022 ERAS® cycle, our program will be participating in the supplemental ERAS application offered through the AAMC's ERAS program. Applicants will be required to complete the MyERAS application, and participation in the supplemental ERAS application is optional.

The additional information will help our program staff learn more about applicants’ medical education journey, including more meaningful information about work, volunteer, and research experiences, and help us better identify applicants who fit our program environment and mission.

The supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform outside the MyERAS application and must be completed between September 1 and September 30.

What is the criterion for application to the Categorical Internal Medicine Residency Program?

Our program reviews all applications received through ERAS. US clinical experience is not required. We do not have a cut-off for year of 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 at its sole discretion for residents entering graduate medical, dental, and podiatric training programs. Candidates who 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 1st 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 for all applicants who have graduated medical school. Current international medical students graduating this year must have an ECFMG certificate prior to July 1. An ECFMG Certificate is not required to be considered for interview.

What is the deadline for application?

We will accept and review applications until November 30th.
