Family Medicine Residency Application

Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applications are accepted beginning September 1 through December 31 for a residency position that begins the following year.

Applications must include:

  • ERAS Application
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Three (3) letters of recommendation. We expect at least one letter to be from a Family Medicine physician.
  • Dean's letter
  • Personal statement
  • Medical school transcript
  • Medical student performance evaluation (MSPE)
  • USMLE Steps 1 and Step 2 CK
  • COMLEX Levels 1 and 2 PE

In addition:

  • Medical School graduation date within 3 years
  • We accept and sponsor a limited number of both J1 and H1-B visas


Interviews are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays beginning in October and ending by mid- January. Interviews are by invitation only and all communications regarding applications will be conducted through ERAS. 

Interviews will all be virtual, and begin with a program introduction and open discussion led by our Program Director, Amber Whited-Watson, DO. Additionally, we will be offering frequent “Zoom Socials” to candidates who have interviewed, and are interested, to meet with current residents and faculty in a more relaxed environment to ask questions and learn about daily life as a resident physician at MetroHealth Department of Family Medicine.
