Application process

We accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). The application and all supporting documentation must be submitted by Dec. 1 of the year preceding the appointment date. The academic year begins with paid orientation the final two weeks in June, and clinical responsibilities begin July 1.

  1. To apply to the program, visit the ERAS website. All applications to Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education programs must include these application materials.
  2. All appointments are made through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Candidates must register through the NRMP website. Rarely, a limited number of positions may be available at the PGY-2 or PGY-3 level.
  3. Applicants considered for an appointment will be invited to interview at Mayo Clinic via Zoom for a personal interview with the program director and selected faculty. Interviews will be conducted between November and January.
