How to Apply

We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Please provide the following information via ERAS:

1.) Curriculum Vitae
2.) Personal Statement
3.) Medical School Transcript
4.) USMLE Scores
5.) Dean's Letter (MSPE)
6.) Three (3) Letters of Recommendation: One letter must be from an anesthesiologist. We prefer, but do not require, that letters from anesthesiologists are written using this standardized letter format found here. We highly recommend that one letter come from a medicine attending (or medicine chair letter), especially if you are applying for one of the Categorical tracks.

Applicants are responsible for ensuring that application materials have been completed and properly submitted to ERAS. The Resident Selection Committee will review all completed applications and will select applicants for interviews.

Due to the large number of applicants, interviews will be arranged by invitation only.

You may visit the UCSF Graduate Medical Education website for appointment information, contracts, policies, and guidelines.

PLEASE NOTE THIS UCSF GME POLICY: A passing score on USMLE Step II is required for all trainees beginning a UCSF GME program. To meet this requirement, applicants should have passed USMLE Step II prior to placement on UCSF rank order lists. In selected cases, with the approval of the Program Director and the Office of GME, applicants may be placed on UCSF rank order lists without the USMLE Step II score.

Thank you for your interest in our program.
