Our program utilizes ERAS® (Electronic Residency Application Service) for the application process. Please contact your medical school of graduation for ERAS® information and packet application. If you are an international medical graduate, please contact your local Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) office for more information on ERAS®. Paper applications are not accepted.

A preliminary review of each application will be made upon receipt of a complete application and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications should consist of all ERAS® materials and should include medical school transcripts, USMLE score – Part 1, and personal statement. Letters of recommendation from three board-certified U.S. surgeons who are familiar with your work are required. The Dean’s letter is not required for initial review.

After the Selection Committee has reviewed your completed file, and if you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted through ERAS to select a date for your interview. Please be sure to include your e-mail address and telephone number as part of your ERAS® application.

In accordance with the AAMC guidelines, we will be planning virtual-only interviews for the 2020-2021 interview season. We will also not be sponsoring any visiting sub-internships. Instead, we are working on developing a process that will give you, as an applicant, as much information about our program as possible. Please revisit this site often to get updates on “virtual sub-internships,” virtual tours, and opportunities to meet with our residents and faculty in ways that allow you to fully understand our culture and ethos.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Urology Program Coordinator, Alexis French-Parkinson, at 314-362-8033 or e-mail at alexis.french@wustl.edu.
